Not so good

Sail Date: September 03, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

We were very disappointed in the comfort of the beds, asked what could be done, turned the mattress and 2 large kitchen trays were under the mattress, holding it up, I guess. The steward was very nice and said he would check with his supervisor about getting another mattress but this was denied. In Boston, had trouble with their shuttle transportation and had to walk to ship fron another terminal even though, in Boston, we were told it would make two stops, one at our trip, we were refunded the $30.00 however, it was a long.....walk with my new knee. Meals were only fair. The shows were not good. We like to play cards with our friends, however, there was NO card room and we were constantly looking for a table and 4 chairs to play cards except on deck 15 after dinner, we found out too late that you could use the dining table after clean up.

Pros: Pool area

Cons: Very bad mattress

Recommends Caribbean Princess? No.
