9 Night Eastern Caribbean (New York Roundtrip)
Sail Date: July 01, 2008
Ship: Caribbean Princess
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 9 years ago
Althought this ship was lovely and the food and entertainment excellent, we were very disappointed to have been advised a few days prior to sailing that the port of St. Maarten had been eliminated. We booked this particular cruise ONLY because of that stop! Also, even though we had booked our cruise more than a year in advance, they were unable to provide us with a table of 10 for dinner. They had several of these tables throughout the dining rooms, but we didn't get one. Unacceptable, considering the earliness of our booking.

SHOPPING IS EXCELLENT - ESPECIALLY FOR JEWELRY
Don't Miss: TAKE THE PIRATE SHIP EXCURSION FOR $19PP . . TAKES YOU FROM SHIP IN CROWN BAY, TO HAVENSIGHT AND CHARLOTTE AMALIE - ALL DAY ON OFF PASS FOR THIS PRICE. THE DEAL OF THE CENTURY!

Get off the ship as early as possible to secure a lounge chair around the pool in Margaritaville. It's lovely.
Don't Miss: The pool at Margaritaville!

An OK port
Don't Miss: The Coach Outlet is AMAZING!

Pros: THE SHIP WAS LOVELY - FOOD EXCELLENT - ENTERTAINMENT VERY GOOD

Cons: PORT OF ST. MAARTEN CANCELLED - VERY DISAPPOINTING. MORE DISSASPONTING WAS THAT WE HAD BOOKED A PARTY OF 10 MORE THAN A YEAR AGO, YET, THEY WERE UNABLE TO ACCOMODATE US WITH ONE TABLE AT DINNER. WE GOT A TABLE FOR 6 AND A TABLE FOR 4. UNACCEPTABLE.

Recommends Caribbean Princess? Yes!
