A great holiday.

Sail Date: December 24, 2006

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Balcony

We had never been on a cruise before and didn't know exactly what to expect. We had such a great time - the staff was faboulous and we credit them with the great time that we had. Our stateroom was nice and I have to say not as small as we heard that they would be. Our room stewart was amazing - knew what we needed before we did. Plenty of things to do on the ship - almost felt like too much was going on at all times of day.

Pros: The staff of the ship is great.

Cons: Lack of pool management.

Recommends Caribbean Princess? Yes!

Really just a nice day on the beach. Really beautiful and well kept.
Don't Miss: Just enjoy the day - very relaxing.

We did the dolphin swim in Anguilla and had a great day. The boat ride back and forth was really enjoyable and relaxing. The dolphin swim was fun and we loved the island. You get to spend time on Meads Beach and it is sheer paradise. Lunch was just ok - but to be honest we were enjoying ourselves so much that it didn't matter. We got back early enough to change and walk around St. Maarten a bit before having to go back onto the ship.
Don't Miss: Just taking in the natural beauty of this island.

We did the Ondeck Sailing Race and had a great time. It is a lot of hard work for those that enjoy sailing however, if you don't want to participate you don't have to. The crew is very experienced and knows the area very well. We had a great time and if you go you still have a nice part of the day to spend in St. Thomas. We had lunch in a nice cafe and even did a bit of shopping. Totally take the map of the shopping area so that you know where all the great shops are. We got some amazing deals - not to mention duty free.
Don't Miss: Shopping is the #1 thing to do on this island. Worth the walk around - especially for jewlery.
