When we sailed on the Caribbean Princess last April, we had trouble finding seating in the Horizon Court as well. We then discovered we could get our food at the buffet and go to Cafe Carib (right next to the Horizon Court) and we always found a seat.

Thank you for posting your review!
We experienced the same lack of seating issue on the Crown Princess. I think a lot of people discovered the Cafe Caribe option because that was often crowded as well.
We enjoyed a 4-day cruise on the Caribbean Princess. This ship is beautiful and well kept, and the crew is friendly and professional.
Great ship. Staff was above and beyond the call of duty. Shore excursions were very enjoyable and well thought out. Food was very very good. Had a great time.
Attentive Staff, fun atmosphere, loved the itinerary, enjoyed movies under stars
BY THE WAY, we just got off the Island Princess after a month of cruising. If I understood the story correctly, they actually expanded the seating of the Horizon Court during refurb making it much easier to find an empty seat. Maybe this will be a trend across the fleet.
