7 Night Western Caribbean (Houston Roundtrip)
Sail Date: January 17, 2016
Ship: Caribbean Princess
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: C226
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 2 years ago

We booked this cruise mostly because of the GREAT price, though we were a little unsure about Princess Cruise Line.  From embarkation to disembarkation we were pleasantly surprised.  The stateroom and other decor was a little worn (she is going in for revitalization in March 2016) but everything was super clean and tidy.  Food was very good in the Dining Room but we did not care for the buffet much.  Entertainment was pretty good, too.  Sailing out of Houston means crossing the Gulf of Mexico before getting to warm enough climate for pool and feels like a loss of a day going and a day coming back.  Prefer sailing out of Florida for that reason.  Overall, we would book on Princess again for sure.

Balconies are a MUST for us! Liked that it had the sliding door like Royal Caribbean's balcony staterooms. The one Carnival cruise we have been on had a regular door to the balcony that would not stay open.

Ship Tip

We enjoy the Traditional Dining and found the 8 pm seating to our liking. The International Cafe' (open 24 hours & no extra charge) in the Piazza was very nice, too.
