Canada/New England Cruising

Sail Date: October 02, 2016

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Gorgeous weather in Canada and New England helped make this a spectacular cruise. The Caribbean Princess is an older ship, but still in good shape and maintained well. The food is overall just average (both sit down dining and buffet)-with the specialty restaurants offering the only really good meals. With 3000+ passengers, waiting in long lines becomes the norm, so patience is necessary. The staff is well informed and helpful and our cabin steward particularly attentive. 

Be prepared that other cruise ships have similar itineraries during the short fall season, so each port is crowded with tourists all vying to visit the same major sites. 

Cabin / Stateroom
Our cabin steward, Gerardo, was particularly attentive and our room always clean and neat.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Considering 3000+ passengers, embarkation and disembarkation goes smoothly. Waiting around and long lines are just part of the process.
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
DO NOT GO TO CORNERBROOK unless more excursions are added so all passengers can partake in activities outside the port. There is NOTHING to do in Cornerbrook!
Onboard Activities
Service and Staff
Staff always helpful and well-informed. Our cabin steward was particularly attentive.
Food and Dining
Just average-certainly preparing quantity not quality. Specialty restaurants offering only upscale meals the entire trip.


Expect long lines and bring your patience.
