Great cruise,

Sail Date: August 27, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

We left in a hurricane, and the television coverage of the hurricane in NY showed the ship leaving and amazement that we were doing so. Some people apparently chose not to sail. No problems for us. Some rocking and rolling, but she's a big ship and took the waves pretty well.I had dramamine, which I only needed the first two days.People we encountered were faring well.

Pros: Ship itself, friendly staff, entertainment

Cons: food in dining rooms, smoking in casino

Recommends Caribbean Princess? Yes!

Food and Dining
Food in the dining rooms was disappointing. Bland and overcooked in the English tradition, although the soups were oversalted.

Interestingly, the food at the buffet was better prepared and better quality.

We loved Sabatini's, which is well worth the $20pp supplement. Food and service there were outstanding.
Cabin / Stateroom
Small, but not too small. Mattresses were a little too soft. Limited space for unpacking. Shower was decent size. room was neat and clean and housekeeping was efficient and friendly.
The musical reviews in the theater were excellent.
Children's Programs
Can't say much, as there were not many children on board.
Ship Quality
loved this ship. Good size, big, but not overwhelming. Clean, neat, no signs of excessive wear carpets looked new; furnishings looked new, like the ship may have had a recent make-over.
Service and Staff
Everyone we encountered was friendly and eager to help.
