7 Night Western Caribbean (Houston Roundtrip)
Sail Date: January 31, 2016
Ship: Caribbean Princess
Cabin Type: Suite
Cabin Number: C748
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 2 years ago

This was our first experience leaving from Bayport and thankfully, our last! The boarding process was line after line, as an elite and suite passenger, not something expected. The food on board was below par and the stateroom furniture was stained.  Many crew members seemed tired and rightfully so, as they were at the end of their tours. Of course, overall, the crew was exceptional, friendly and warm as they typically are. This ship for sure needs some TLC and updating!

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
Dining Room selections were not very good and taste/quality was less than subpar. A premium wine list should be offered so we don't have to take wines that are of better quality on board.

Cabin / Stateroom

Stateroom steward, Rodrigo, may be the best we have ever had! The furnishings were old and stained but the bed was very comfortable.

Love this port and Pancho's Backyard (downtown) meal we had on the entire trip!
