Not all happy with the Caribbean Princess ship at all.  First and probably the worst, the shipped smelled of sewer gas.  We that it was Ft. Lauderdale but was the whole trip!  The entertainment was not the same as the Ruby Princess.  There singers was very hard to listen too, sounded like Karaoke singers. There comedian was just awful.   Food was not as good as the Ruby Princess.  The glass around the pull area and the balconies looks like they have not cleaned it in years.  The glass had paint over spray all over it making the view poor, water spots and even feet prints all over them.  The ship was not dirty just not maintained.  We had a balcony on the 10th floor and it was very large and probably the nicest part of the trip.  Dj Kev was great, he played some good music by the pool.  The Pool water was greasy and not clear.  The service on the ship was very good and friendly though. Costa Maya is a very poor area with a lot of sea grass all through the water making hard to enjoy or even snorkel.  Cozumel was not too bad but no free beach area, they make you pay a lot of money to go to a beach.  Would not go back to this ship or these ports again.
