The Caribbean Princess is a great ship. It is one of the largest in the Princess fleet and it offers a lot of ammenities. We really liked Movie Under the Stars and the specialty dining restaurant-Sterling Steakhouse.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
We tried the dining rooms, the two buffets, pizza place, burger place, and one of the specialty restaurants. I thought the food was good at all of the restaurants.

The Caribbean princess offers a very diverse array of entertainment options. Each evening you receive a newsletter giving you information about what is happening the next day on the ship so you can plan you day accordingly.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Our room steward was the best I have ever had. This was my three cruise on Princess and he was great. He was very attentive to our needs.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The ship is large. I highly recommend taking a ship tour on your first day so you can get acquainted to the ship. I really enjoyed being on a large ship because there were a lot of options for places to go lay out in the sun or find a quiet place to read and relax.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We had a mini-suite on deck 9. The mini-suite provides a larger bathroom with a tub and a small living room. It also has a balcony. For two adults we really liked having the extra space especially in the morning when one person wanted to sleep in and the other wanted to read or watch TV.

We went snorkling on Pinel Island which is on the French side of St. Maarten. We took a bus from the ship (about 20 minute ride) and then a small boat over to Pinel Island. The snorkling was great. There was an instructor in the water. He was feeding the fish so you got to see a lot of different fish.

We went to Magen's Bay which is rated in the top ten beaches in the world. It was perfect. It is definitely a must see!

We did not get off the ship to go to Princess Cay because we were just there last year. It is nice. A lot of the people that we talked to said that they really enjoyed it.

Pros: I like the different entertainment and dining options

Cons: Nothing

Recommends Caribbean Princess? Yes!
