7 Night Western Caribbean (Houston Roundtrip)
Sail Date: January 17, 2016
Ship: Caribbean Princess
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: C247
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveling with another couple, we took the same cruise on Caribbean Princess in both January '15 and '16, finding each a great experience. This year's was even better though (despite a bit of high seas one day) because of the milder weather overall and our wiser choice of shore excursions. Also, the entertainment was top-notch whether in the lounges or major productions in the Princess Theater. Kudos too for the daily Patter with all sorts of info, and the efficient manner of boarding/disembarking. Someone would have to be a real grump not to thoroughly enjoy any Princess cruise.  We plan to book future itineraries aboard Princess ships, confident now -- after five consecutive cruises -- that we won't be disappointed.  

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
We took most meals in the Island dining room and the Horizon Court but had a special-occasion chance to dine in the Crown Grill. Superb!

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Long hours at sea were spent in the well-equipped gym, the library and simply relaxing on deck.


5 out of 5
Shows in the Princess Theater were polished and professional, while there was always something interesting going on in the bars and lounges too.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
All staff greeted us with courtesy and provided outstanding service.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Though we could probably make our way easily around any Princess ship by now, we always find they're well-maintained and "ship-shape."

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Cabin steward, Ranier, was excellent. He was attentive in every detail and eager to engage in conversation when we asked about his home country, family, sea service, etc.

Ship Tip

Don't miss the shows! The singers, dancers and other performers obviously put a great deal of time in making their presentations lively and memorable. Likewise, there seemed to be non-stop entertainment going on throughout the ship (such as the violin duet, piano players, comedians.)
