The best part of the cruise was the specialty restaurants. We dined French Bistro and Cagney's Steak twice each and once each at Moderno Brazilian, Teppanyaki Japanese, and Cucino Italian and enjoyed each venue. We also liked Jimmy Buffet Margaritaville up on deck 17. Burgers and margaritas excellent. The balcony room was spacious enough, the king bed was comfortable, and the bathroom was big. This was a New Year's Eve Cruise and there were lots of kids of all ages on the ship but no problem.. Embarkation was very quick; disembarkation somewhat slower due to passing through Customs. The ship moved through the Caribbean very smoothly, and there was hardly any feeling of motion. Theater shows were high energy but too long. One of the shows was 1 hr, 35 minutes long! Things that could be improved are: 1) the safety drill took too long (we have cruised other lines and they handle this much better); 2)don't allow guests to put food plates in the corridor;3) need to have some sort of enrichment lectures on daily activities. The iConcierge app was useful to tie our cell phones together. The casino is the best we've seen on a ship. Big and lots of good slots. Bingo is fun but getting too expensive for just 3 games. We had the beverage and dining packages and used them to the fullest.

Caribbean Princess

April 2016 - 21 Night British Isles Passage (Houston To London) Cruise on Caribbean Princess

A Mixed Bag

The Caribbean Princess was in reasonably good shape for an 11 year old vessel. Our mini-suite cabin was roomy with good closet space. There were some transient odors mid-ship on the atrium stairways. Food was average; we found the buffet choices often more attractive than the anytime dining. We are wine drinkers and found the $7-8 cost for small glasses of average wine to be excessive. We brought on 5 bottles of our own wine in Bayport and paid the $15 corking fee to bring it to the dining room. Entertainment was excellent, but the theater is undersized. Two shows necessitated getting to the theater a half hour before showtime; eventually, they put on a 3rd show. The sea day speakers were interesting but times often conflicted with lunch. Weather events caused the itinerary to be altered. We missed the Wales stop due to rough seas but feel this condition could have been avoided. We took 2 shore excursions that were excellent.

Celebrity Silhouette

December 2015 - 7 Night Eastern Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip) Cruise on Celebrity Silhouette

chrisu's Tips

Holyhead, Wales - Stop cancelled by captain. He should have remained docked in Liverpool so we could have toured Wales as planned.
Houston, Texas - We live in Houston, but Bayport is awful! Princess has left this port terminal. Heavy rains caused the Houston Port Authority to close the port, and the ship was a day late sailing for Ft. Lauderdale.
