Our first time on Princess was a pleasant experience. We had cruised twice before, on Royal Caribbean and Crystal, but Princess was our favorite.

Our room was spacious, clean, comfortable (we stayed in a suite); the bed extremely comfortable, the balcony roomy. The food in the dining room (where we had lunch and dinner) was very good, with many choices - but the service was slow (Thankgiving week, the ship was full - that could be the reason).

Pools for adults only was a plus for us - lots of places to sunbathe, never felt crowded.

Entertainment was very good, very professional (at least the shows we watched). Good mixture of fun and good music. Comedian that week (Sarge) was hilarious, had the theatre laughing non stop with his routine behavior! Bert Stratton , the piano man!, was a great, personable entertainer and had everone sing along with him till late in the evening. Movie under the star was very pleasant, a different experience.

Our only problems were: room service (order was never delivered with all the items we had requested); desembarkation (took quite a while, staff was not as friendly as ... when we arrived...).

All in all a great experience, a fun week.

Pros: Entertainment; accommodation

Cons: Room service was poor

Recommends Caribbean Princess? Yes!
