Great cruise

Sail Date: June 22, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

We just returned from a 9 day cruise on the Carribean Princess ship. The ship was huge although it didn't feel crowded. The major drawback that we had with the ship is that it had NO game room or place to play cards or games. Also the library did not have any place to sit and read. Since the events going on in the Piazza and lounges were very loud, it was hard to find a quiet place to talk, read, or play games.

Pros: many ports visited

Cons: lack of game room to play games or read

Recommends Caribbean Princess? Yes!

It was often difficult to get into the shows and the entertainment was average at best.
Ship Quality
Sometimes the bathroom were not always clean. We could have use more signs, etc to help us navigate around the ship. Again, we missed the game room that we always found on other ships.
Food and Dining
The convenience of dining times were great and the wait staff was superb!! Mariana and Jigger never missed a beat in getting us what we wanted for dinner.
Would have liked more variety in the menu. Overall the food was good, but could have been better. Breakfast seemed to have the least variety in the dining rooms - no waffles, french toast, etc. Omelletes were often undercooked and runny.
Cabin / Stateroom
Stateroom seemed great - balcony certainly made the room seem large. Only complaint was that we asked to have the lamp fixed beside the bed and it was never fixed - bulb flickered on and off continuously which made it difficult for reading.
Service and Staff
Jonathan in the Crooner's Lounge always went above and beyond. He remembered us and what out drink order preferences were. Marianna and Jigger in the Palm dining room went the extra mile to request special foods that she had the chef make for us. Simo and Eduardo in the Coral dining room were always friendly, pleasant, and willing to accomodate.
Newport, Rhode Island
Beautiful port - just had a lot of difficulty finding tours.
Boston, Massachusetts
We did hop on/hop off narrated tour that was great. Great port - wish we would have had more time there!!
Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island
Emjoyed the private tour that we arranged once we got off the ship - enjoyed seeing the house of green gables.
Bar Harbor, Maine
Enjoyed walking around the city.
Halifax, Nova Scotia
Again, we arranged a limo tour and saw so many of the sites on this beautiful island.
Sydney, Nova Scotia
Not much to see or do here.
