This is our 3rd visit on the Caribbean Princess and again the experience was excellent. They keep the ship in very good condition and especially the cleanliness of the staterooms and other areas. In this particular cruise, we sailed to different islands and enjoyed them very much, especially: Tortola, Antigua and St. Lucia. We enjoyed the islands, their local beer and especially the people. In our group of 14 family members, 3 were first time cruisers. They really enjoyed the experience.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The food was very good, the anytime dining is fantastic since it gives you flexibility in the handling of the activities. Our grandson has special diet needs and we had a wonderful experience with Head Waiter, Lazaro from Mexico. He did an excellent job in attending to his needs.

I think that this area needs improvement. There should be more variety for latin dancing.

The room was well kept and the balcony staterooms are wonderful. As a family group we were able to share freely in our conjoined balconies.
