7 Night Classic Southern Caribbean (San Juan Roundtrip)
Sail Date: April 26, 2009
Ship: Caribbean Princess
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 9 years ago
This was my first cruise and I was very impressed with the ship and the islands. Everything was beautiful. The food was restaurant quality for the most part, and the crew was friendly. My only disappointment was having to be back on the ship by 4:30 some days and 5:30 the others. I would have loved to experience the night life on some of the islands.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Restaurant quality food mostly, anytime dining was a great option for us. The 24 hour buffet was pretty good too.

Always something to do, lots of shows, movies, events, games, pools, bars, and more.

Go to the beach and snorkel on this island! Or take a Catamaran Tour.
Don't Miss: Baths at Virgin Gorda!

We should have done the canopy tour here, a very lush island! Rum Destillery tour not worth it. Pay $3 instead of $10 per person for just the rum tasting!

Booze cruise was nice, we did not get to snorkel however due to choppy waters.

Canopy tour was good, but seemed short.

Beach! Snorkel! Catamaran Tour! What a beautiful island, we went to St. Johns on a Ferry and loved it.
Don't Miss: St. Johns is a short Ferry ride away

Pros: The ship was beautiful and so were the islands

Cons: Not having more time on the islands
