7 Night Classic Southern Caribbean (San Juan Roundtrip)
Sail Date: March 06, 2011
Ship: Caribbean Princess
Cabin Type: Suite
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 7 years ago
They serve instant coffee!!!! How can a cruise line brag about their food and then serve instant coffee??? We heard many, many complaints about the poor quality of the coffee. If you pay them an additional $28 per person, you can get brewed coffee, but they don't tell you this upfront. When we didn't want to buy water at dinner, we had to find our own water for refills. Salt and pepper were items we frequently had to leave our table to search for. In many food areas, your only drink choice available requires you to purchase a soda or water at $2.50 to $4 each.

Our dinner service (at fixed-time dining) was so poor, if this had been a restaurant I would never have gone back!

Pros: Our stateroom (mini-suite)
