Wonderful Trip on the Caribbean Princess

Sail Date: February 28, 2016

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

We just returned from a wonderful week on the Caribbean Princess out of the Port of Houston. We visited Cozumel, Roatan and Belize. The service and staff were outstanding. Smiling faces from the time we embarked through the disembarkation. We were on the exact same week a year ago on the Emerald Princess. 

Embarkation and Disembarkation
So sad that Princess is leaving the Port of Houston. From the time we left our hotel until we were in our room was 30 minutes. On disembarkation we left our room and was back at our hotel in under 30 minutes. Fantastic experience!!!!
Ship Quality
Some previous reviews talk about the condition of the ship. Yes, it is apparent that it is time for it to go in for a re-furbish, which is scheduled for 2017. But, there was on going work happening all week long. New deck carpet, painting and more. Not a problem for us.
Destinations and Excursions
We did the Fury snorkeling excursion in Cozumel. This was our third time and the price is great for a perfect time. The Island of Roaton was beautiful. Snorkeled at Goff Cayes in Belize and the snorkeling was stunning.
Onboard Activities
Plenty to choose from. Something for everyone.
Great shows each night and very talented. Especially enjoyed the comedian Carl Strong.
Service and Staff
Michael, our cabin steward was outstanding. He went way above and beyond the call of duty. The rest of the staff was very friendly and helpful.
Food and Dining
We did anytime dining. It was ok, but will go back to traditional dining next cruise. We like to have the same wait staff each evening. Anytime dining did not give us the opportunity to get to know the staff. We did not do any of the specialty dining. The selections, quality and the service in the main dining room are more than enough to pamper us for the week. The buffet had great selections and the quality was good. Pizza, hamburgers etc. were all very good.
