7 Night Western Caribbean (Houston Roundtrip)
Sail Date: February 22, 2014
Ship: Caribbean Princess
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: R318
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 4 years ago

We had a wonderful time, the staff was excellent and extremely attentive -- they seemed to know what we needed before we knew that we needed it. They all went above and beyond our expectations. The food was excellent. Entertainment was very good, but limited in space (small stage), so no big productions.The balcony cabin is a bit small, but the closet is huge -- more than enough room


The only problems we noticed: 1) The safe is exceptionally small; 2) There are many visible rust spots (rather disconcerting, but no problems); 3) The Xunantunich Mayan Ruins tour filled up way too soon; don't know if Princess can do anything about this other than to pressure them to add more tours: Many people were waitlisted and some couldn't even get on the waitlist. We  couldn't even find a local tour to visit this place. At the least, Princess should tell passengers to sign up for this excursion early as it fills up quickly.
