Caribbean Princess

February 2015 - Caribbean Princess to Caribbean - Eastern

Caribbean 2015

Cruise was very enjoyable. We had a wonderful time and as usual in February the weather was warm and sunny. This is or favorite time to go because we have always had good weather while the weather at home was dreadful. All the staff on the ship are wonderful and very attentive to our needs. When we got to our room the sink was draining very slowly and Jose' our stewart contacted maintenance to fix it which was done right away. Also the commode stopped flushing on Wed. and it was fixed very right away also. The food was excellent in the dinning rooms and the buffet and my husband's favorite the juicy hotdogs were ideal. This area of the Caribbean (the eastern) is our favorite, St. Thomas and St. Maarten are gorgeous and one of our favorite places to visit. St. Thomas has Magens Bay which is so beautiful and relaxing and this time on St. Maarten we went to Maho Beach to watch the airplanes land, that was  a real rush and a great photo too! I also recommend the anytime dinning because you do not have to be on a schedule for what time you want to eat. We usually share a table so getting seated is easy and you meet such interesting people and sometimes this leads to lasting friendships. The entertainment is always topnotch and we are never at a loss for anything to do in the evenings. We have always sailed on Princess Cruise Lines so I can not compare to any others but we have never wanted to switch because our experiences have been so wonderful, we will be doing another cruise next year with Princess and can not wait.

Ruby Princess

February 2013 - Ruby Princess to Caribbean - Eastern

Cruise 2/2013

The cruise was very enjoyable. Service and entertainment was excellent as always. JJ davis has been helpful in the past cruises we have booked and will continue to book thru her for our next cruise, which we have booked on board for 2/2013. The room location was very nice and convenient to pools and buffets. the window view in room was very good. This is the first year we did not receive an invitation to the Captin's Circle party so we missed this on monday night. The shore excursion was very nice but would like to have a little more time at Trunk Bay and more time to to snorkel and enjoy the beach. Have booked another cruise for next year to the Western Caribbean and will be talking to JJ in the near future about this.
