7 Night Western Caribbean (Houston Roundtrip)
Sail Date: January 03, 2016
Ship: Caribbean Princess
Cabin Type: Suite
Cabin Number: D417
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 2 years ago

Had a pleasant week.  Not quite as "nice" (staff, food, special touches) as the Holland America trips we've taken but good "middle of the road" cruise line.  The shore excursions were good - especially the Cenote snorkeling in Cozumel.  The biggest negative:  We were 6.5 hours late getting into port at the end of the trip.  Apparently this is not an uncommon issue for the Houston port but it would have been nice to have had a head's up about it in order to make plans.

Just had better service and amenities on the Holland America trips. Was kind of disappointed. Lack of outlets was a problem.

Plan to be delayed if you sail in or out of the Houston port.

Definitely do the Cenote snorkeling and ask that Pepe be your guide!

Gumbalimba was fun. Skip the beach afterward (i.e. purchase the less expensive excursion).
