7 Night Classic Southern Caribbean (San Juan Roundtrip)
Sail Date: March 20, 2011
Ship: Caribbean Princess
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 7 years ago
This was our first cruise (we are in our mid 30's) and had high expectations. We thought the ship was laid out very well (despite getting lost a few times - who doesn't in the beginning?), very clean and had a great ambiance. The food was great, always a nice variety. We didn't fany getting dressed up every night for the set dinners, so we ate at the buffet which always had a nice variety of food and was themed on most nights. We opted to do the taxi tours at a few ports as this gave us a brief overview of each of the islands. Would recommend doing that as it's much cheaper than the cruise tours and gives you plenty of time to wander around the port town. We would definitely go on a cruise again, not sure if it would be an annual event though.
