Caribbean Princess

April 2017 - Caribbean Princess to Transatlantic

Good value with a whirlwind finish

After missing embarkation at Fort Lauderdale, due to bad weather, I boarded in Bermuda with the help of Princess.

I very much enjoyed the long string of sea days, although the weather was only 50-60 degrees with intermittent rain.  The last four days were quite hectic because of early morning lengthy shore excursions and a number of time changes.

The ship is better than most other Princess vessels for comfort, crew friendliness/efficiency, and service. The food in the dining rooms was good for the most part, but the buffet servings were much better than lukewarm.  Pies and desserts containing pastry were quite tough.

The entertainment was quite good and having three shows/nite allowed for more seating.

Celebrity Summit

October 2015 - Celebrity Summit to Canada, New England, New York

Excellent fall cruise

Perfect timing for a fall cruise, with interesting and scenic ports.  The Summit is a well run ship with friendly and efficient staff members.  I particularly enjoyed the nature and geological lectures.
