7 Night Eastern Caribbean Islander (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
Sail Date: February 18, 2007
Ship: Caribbean Princess
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Large Group

I was very pleased with the cruise. The food in the restaurants was very good, but the buffets were only mediocre at best. Very friendly and professional staff. The excursion to Maegan's Beach was no more than a taxi ride to and from the beach and was even more expensive, there were no chairs available, and the beach was dirty and overcrowded that day. Our view was partially blocked by a lifeboat, and I would definitely choose a stateroom with a balcony on another cruise.

We enjoyed shopping in the town. We needed to spend more than one day in this port, in my opinion.

We were in port on a holiday, and most shops were closed. Another day should have been chosen for this visit.

The beach and water were a delight. The food in the buffet was terrible.

Pros: The weather, promenade deck, friendly, professional staff and the Coral Restaurant, especially waiters Fernando and Joel.

Cons: The buffet food was mediocre, and the buffet food at Eleuthera Island was terrible. In general you need more quality vegetarian protein options like hummus, soy products or seitan, etc.

Recommends Caribbean Princess? Yes!
