5 Night Western Caribbean Getaway (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
Sail Date: February 21, 2015
Ship: Caribbean Princess
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Cabin Number: E711
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 3 years ago

The Caribbean Princess was a very nice ship. We did not like the 5 day cruise- we prefer 7 days or more. The food was very good, both in the dining room and buffet. One problem we had at the buffet was that the dishes were freshly washed and were VERY hot. They were handed to us by a server with a napkin so we wouldn't burn our fingers. Hot plates are great for hot dishes, but the first thing we came to was the salad bar. Salad dishes should be COLD- NOT HOT. The ship rode with  a very noticeable vibration. The entertainment was very good. The crew was attentive and very pleasant. PRINCESS'S CAPTAINS CIRCLE gave excellent benefits- BETTER THAN ALL OTHER CRUISE LINJES. Since we were elite, we got early boarding, free internet and free laundry and dry cleaning.  This feature is a very important feature when we plan future cruises.
