We really liked this Princess cruise. It was very relaxing\, and the service was better than expected. We will be back!
Food and Dining
3 out of 5
We chose Anytime Dining\, and really loved it. If you are willing to share the table with other passengers\, seating is usually within 1 or 2 minutes. If you want a table by yourself\, wait can be up to 10 minutes. Our dining rooms (Island and Coral) were beautifully appointed. The food was usually good\, but not outstanding. We felt it was sometimes somewhat on the bland side. We did not try the specialty dining restaurants.

Entertainment was OK\, but not exiting. In our opinion the comedian Phil Tag had the best performance\, followed by the staff talent and chef entertainment shows.

Kids were mostly not exited to go there\, as the activities were pretty bland. The video game selection for example are outdated and needs to be updated asap. Princess should make a bigger effort to keep kids related activities fresh and exiting. When our kids are happy\, so are we!

The Caribbean Princess is a beautiful ship\, which was built in Italy about 10 years ago. For its age\,and the number of passengers that went through this ship already\, it is in really excellent condition. As for most Italian ships\, the interior\, exterior and design is very stylish. Maintenance and up-keep is outstanding. Our favorite location on this ship was the Serenity deck.
Cabin / Stateroom
3 out of 5
We had a mini suite with balcony\, and were very happy with it. It was slightly bigger than expected\, for sure comfortable for 2 adults and a 10-year old. We were in D232 on deck 9. The balconies on this deck are bigger than most others on this ship\, and closest to the water. The biggest balconies were on deck 10\, right above us. The only one complaint I would have\, is that there is no divider or door between the living room and bedroom. It is really one big room\, and therefore the classification as \"Mini Suite\" is somewhat misleading.
Pros: Staff\, Serenity Deck\, Food
Cons: Kids activities\, no CNN\, pool chair rules not enforced by staff
