Caribbean Princess

January 2016 - 7 Night Western Caribbean (Houston Roundtrip) Cruise on Caribbean Princess

Would do it again in a heartbeat!

Enjoyed this cruise.  Would choose other ports next time - Belize City is  crowded, dirty, and nasty.  Cozumel was fine and Roatan had a lovely beach which we enjoyed immensely. 

 

The food in the dining room was good.  Breakfast got pretty monotonous with few changes day to day.  The service in the dining room was excellent.  Really enjoyed going to the buffet throughout the day and feasting on fresh cantaloupe and pineapple.  

 

Had a suite with balcony so didn't have to hunt for lounge chairs.  Spa was great, but don't go the last day.  Service really suffered when they knew you couldn't book another appointment and the last day turned into a commercial, trying to sell you their products.  Went with a group of four and everyone had the same experience in the spa.

 

The suite was spacious, not luxurious.  Everything was nice, but starting to show its age.  My husband and I had twin beds pushed together to make a queen/king.  Really hated the big crack between the mattresses.  Had just been on a Norwegian cruise in October and they used a king mattress - no crack.

 

Upon return, had strong winds in Houston and had to delay disembarkation many hours.  The weather is not the fault of Princess, but the cruise line could have handled the situation far better.  How about passing out bottled water or opening the buffet to serve basic fare (we were told by staff that the cruise ship has a two or three day surplus of food). 

 

Got a really good deal on this cruise.  Would happily go again at the right price.
