9 Night Eastern Caribbean (New York Roundtrip)
Sail Date: June 22, 2008
Ship: Caribbean Princess
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 9 years ago

There were a lot of activities to participate in on the ship. Night shows were very good, but need to get there at least 45min get a good seat. The other cruisers were not as nice as excepted. We lost a lot of time at Bermuda, which was by far the nicest island we visited. That was very disappointing. Not a party boat, which i liked, but a lot of kids. The pool was always packed and it was near impossible to find two chairs together at the pool.

Food and Dining

Dinner food was great, but service was really slow. Expect dinner to take 2 hours.

Many activities and good shows.

Service and Staff

The cruise directors were extremely nice and pleasant. The waiters were somewhat rude and didn't have any patients. Example, I was speaking to someone at dinner and the waiter opened the menu and stuck it 2 inches from my face between myself and my friend.

The room was a nice size and balcony great. Bathroom was very small. I wasn't happy that our lotion was open and half empty, a paper tube of conditioner was already open and we did not have a fresh role of toilet paper when we arrived.

Beautiful scenory, but driving through town it looked like a "ghetto". A lot of stores to buy jewlery and watches from. Not a big discount, but no tax.

Everything was nice about this place. The people, the view, the beach, the houses, the drive through town. I was highly disappointed to only be there for 4 hours. We got to spend 1 hour at the beach and had to head back to the boat.
Don't Miss: Horseshoe bay beach

Margaritaville has a pool with a swim up bar that is free to enjoy, but the drinks are pricey. The beach was filled with seaweed and there was no space to lay out a towel.
Don't Miss: Margaritaville

A run down lower manhattan. A bunch of little shops and bars.
Don't Miss: the little soveigner shop along the water that has $1.25 beers.

Pros: Food was good. Bermuda was beautiful.

Cons: Never had a table to eat at during lunch. Not enough time at Bermuda (4hours).
