12 Night British Isles (London Roundtrip) Sail Date: August 04, 2013 Ship: Caribbean Princess Cabin Type: Oceanview Traveled As: Couple Reviewed: 3 years ago
This cruise had such a great itinerary. My husband I Iike "destination" cruises, not just cruising for the sake of it. The ports on this cruise were all interesting - especially the first (Guernsey) and the last (LeHavre-Normandy), whose WWII history was so interesting and moving.
The Caribbean Princess was a really nice ship, excellent service, food and entertainment. The only shortcoming to me were the lack of informative port talks. Instead of subject matter experts, they had a person who just seemed to be an experienced cruiser showing her own photos and commenting.
We took the ship's tour of the Normandy landing beaches. This cost $219 pp, and was a great tour, but Princess didn't even give us a bottle of water for the day. You'd think that with an all day tour for which they charge you $219, they could at least throw in the water and not charge you for it.
