5 Night Western Caribbean Getaway (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
Sail Date: September 29, 2014
Ship: Caribbean Princess
Cabin Type: Suite
Cabin Number: D627
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 3 years ago

This was a nice 5 day get away and the Princess staff went out of their way to make it a wonderful escape.  The embarkation was one of the smoothest ever in Fort Lauderdale.   Our rooms were ready when we boarded at noon.  Many passengers were already in the pools and many at the buffet and dining room at boarding time.  The shows were great and the many activities through out the day were well planned.  The 2 port days were certainly long enough to book tours or go out on your own.  We chose to do all-inclusive beach days on our own because they were far less expensive than the ship tours.  The food was good but not exceptional at all stations and dining room.  The ship clean but showing some rusting on balconies.  I would recommend this cruise and would take it again.
