A Mixed Bag
Caribbean Princess Cruise Review to Transatlantic
The Caribbean Princess was in reasonably good shape for an 11 year old vessel. Our mini-suite cabin was roomy with good closet space. There were some transient odors mid-ship on the atrium stairways. Food was average; we found the buffet choices often more attractive than the anytime dining. We are wine drinkers and found the $7-8 cost for small glasses of average wine to be excessive. We brought on 5 bottles of our own wine in Bayport and paid the $15 corking fee to bring it to the dining room. Entertainment was excellent, but the theater is undersized. Two shows necessitated getting to the theater a half hour before showtime; eventually, they put on a 3rd show. The sea day speakers were interesting but times often conflicted with lunch. Weather events caused the itinerary to be altered. We missed the Wales stop due to rough seas but feel this condition could have been avoided. We took 2 shore excursions that were excellent.
