Caribbean Princess

December 2015 - 7 Night Western Caribbean (Houston Roundtrip) Cruise on Caribbean Princess

Not as good as the other two Princess cruises I've taken

The menus seemed less inspired and the food quality didn't measure up to my two previous Princess cruises.  Encountered a few rude crewmembers, but overall the crew was great.  The cabin steward, MaryAnn, is probably the best steward I've had on a cruise.

stansburyal's Tips

Caribbean Princess Caribbean Princess - The Anytime Dining was so popular that we always had to wait for a table. Don't know why they continue the traditional seating.
Puerto Limon, Costa Rica - Marvin was a great guide. The tram through the rain forest was amazing. I wish we had had longer than one hour on the Tortuguero Canals.
Panama Canal (Cruise Into Canal) - I watched the journey through each chamber from a different spot to get a great perspective. First chamber from deck 15. Second from my window on deck 5. Third from deck 7. Get a balcony for this trip.
Colon, Panama - Simply a place to re-board the ship. Very poor city with terrible traffic congestion
Ocho Rios, Jamaica - This is a place to do stuff (water sports, etc.) rather than sight seeing. Open-air carriage ride at the plantation shows a horse and carriage, but it is a hay wagon with benches towed by a smelly diesel tractor. Donovan's bad Monica Lewinsky jokes were inappropriate.
Cartagena, Colombia - Frank was an amazing, knowledgeable tour guide. Be sure to see the Old City. Get your photo with the sloth at the mall.
Oranjestad, Aruba - The two shore excursions I wanted were already booked, but since it was my first trip everything was new. Ryan was a great guide.
Coral Princess Coral Princess - I really did like channel 40 with the maps showing the ship's location.
