15 Night North Cape (Southampton Roundtrip)
Sail Date: June 12, 2015
Ship: Caribbean Princess
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: C616
Traveled As: Couple

Overall, a very good cruise with a very nice itinerary. Princess has been our favorite cruise line up to this point. That is probably still  the case, but it did move down a notch this time. Caribbean Princess is not as nice as the other Princess ships we have sailed on; but we chose this cruise because of the itinerary. We would do it again, although in the future I will try to select ships other than the Caribbean Princess. There was a general lack of communication between staff and passengers; for example, it was communicated ahead of time that there would be one tender port. After the cruise was in progress, we found out that there were 3 tender ports. And there were never any announcements about where the ship was and what we were passing; for example, no announcement when we sailed past the North Cape. We heard a lot of grumbling on the ship about the lack of communication. But the staff we personally encountered were all very nice and friendly, so no complaints there. We liked the ports; only complaint there was that Princess took Geiranger off the itinerary for this cruise, which almost resulted in us not taking this particular cruise.

We liked the size of the cabin and the extended balcony, even though it was too cold on the cruise for us to ever sit out on the balcony.

Ship Tip

The Anytime Dining worked well for us, and we thought our dining room waiter and Jr. waiter were exceptional. In general, the ship is a little more "tired" and run down looking than the other Princess ships we have been on.

Andalsnes does not seem to be really ready for tourists yet.

The Lofoten Islands are exceptional, with jaw-dropping scenery. This was our favorite port.
