Matt the Cruise Director was awesome. The cruise has a lot of entertainment to watch and be part of. I was pleased with all the food options, the only food option I was not pleased with was the lobster dinner on the last formal night. I did not like the lobster served with green risotto and a cream sauce and didn't feel that was a full dinner when you compare to the other dinner options that were served pervious nights. All the staff was very helpful and friendly. Our cabin was always clean . The entertainment was wonderful I really enjoyed the ship dancers. My favorite band was Symphonee. The Live DJ played music for all ages and was great getting the crowd involved. The cruise director staff made my 1st cruise very memorable and fun .I loved watching the marriage match show. For my 1st cruise I would defiantly cruise with Princess again. Read Less

Everything was incredible!! They make you feel like family and you never want to leave the ship! The food was world class and the service on the ship was otherworldly, the drinks on board were incredible and allowed you to venture into a whole other culture and a whole other world of excitement! It is a wonderful mix of people and every passenger on board was so fun and excited and so sweet to everyone else. The stage shows that they put on our like a broadway musical and the performers can sing with the best of them! They have a full range of things for you to do whether it’s hanging by the 5 pools and jacuzzi’s they have, learning about the many secrets of pirate treasure, world class shopping with incredible deals, or anything else you can think of, there is never ever a dull moment. Everything was so smooth especially with their new medallion you use for everything!! It is the best thing out there!! 100% recommend!!! Read Less

Having cruised "Princess" before, I was pretty sure that this would be a great cruise, and at a reasonable cost. I WAS RIGHT. Embarkation/Debarkation fast, and painless. Cabin was just a bit larger than some of the other lines I've sailed recently. Food was very good, and the buffet was OUTSTANDING. Service in the buffet was very, very good as well. BIG shows were much better than the recent offerings, on some other lines, and the presence of LIVE MUSICIANS was a surprise offering. Crew was great overall, with the only exception the wait staff at my table. They were slow, and always blaming someone else for their lack of service. (Kitchen is slow, etc.,etc.,etc. Food in the dining room was, good, but IMO, nothing exceptional. With the outstanding buffet, and several extra cost restaurants, there is no reason to be anything but pleased with the food offerings aboard this fine ship. Read Less

First, the good...This is an EXCELLENT cabin. All balcony views unobstructed. Nice bed, fridge, big tv, nice desk and a surprisingly huge closet... And quiet! Sandwitched between 2 quiet areas...I slept like a baby! The check-in/out process was amazing, both at the embarkation and on the excursions. They know how to move the people well. Now the bad...The food at the main dining rooms was just mediocre. Presentation was good but the meat, sauces and gravys were all tastless; except one meal...I think they dropped the salt shaker into the food. The buffet was ok, became bored with the same things everyday. Far too much lamb and east indian/asian cooking. The desserts looked amazing, tasted like crap. And, the ugly...We had 2 seperate incidents with rude staff. Felt ripped off with every "lecture" being a high pressure sales job. Real people cannot affort $17,000 necklaces!!! Really needed some "beginners" training, not scheduled 2 hours long right at sailing time, maybe 3 or 4 short sessions over the first 2 or 3 days, to talk about issues as they develop. Where to go for help, how to get a coffee in the morning without paying 4.50 a cup, can we bring food to the rooms, can we bring food ashore, where can we smoke, what does "tender" look like, when I shop onshore what can't be brought back, where to go to buy an asprin...so many more questions...all the little things. Probably won't cruise again, maybe will try a European river cruise. Read Less

We liked the itinerary. Enjoyed going to the different islands. Food in the Anytime Dining was very good. Disappointed in the food selection at the Buffet. Bartenders need more training on how to make simple drinks ie: Pina Colada's, Miami Vice drinks. We had a Mini Suite with a balcony on Dolphin Deck 9. The people in the decks above us were able to look from their balconies down to ours. Couldn't even go out eary in the morning or in the evening with your night gown, becauses of people in upper decks. Princess Line charges for all exercise classes. ie: Yoga, spin, etc. Other liners don't charge for these activities. Restrooms were very small. On most bathrooms, if there were more that 4 people, you were buming into each other. Probably won't ever go on a Princess Line again. Caribbean Princess needs to look at their problem areas. Medallion setup needs to be a little more "user friendly". Read Less

We enjoy Princess because it fits our style as a couple: Princess ships are fundamentally ships, not floating amusement parks. The decor is very pleasant, particularly the piazza area. The balcony cabins are comfortable, and we find the food to be excellent. Regarding dining, we enjoy the buffet for breakfast and dinner, but use the main dining rooms in the evening. We will never sail with a cruise line that does not have open dining with tables for two, such as Princess's "Anytime Dining". Particularly on this cruise, getting a table was never a problem. The food and service in the main dining rooms were fine. We happened to receive a complimentary dinner in Sabatini's Italian restaurant, and were VERY impressed. Nex time we will be happy to pay the $25 each. The International Cafe and coffee bar is a highlight for us. The specialty coffees are reasonably priced and quite good, and the snacks and pastries are excellent. This ship had the new "Medallion" feature and vastly upgraded internet service. The medallion made embarkation go very smoothly and quickly and the internet service was almost like land-based wifi in its speed. Of course it is not free, but a much better value than the previous glacially slow service. Some of the ports were new to us: Belize and Roatan. In Roatan we just walked to the adjacent beach for free - very pleasant. In Belize (a long tender trip from ship to shore) we took the excursion to the Altun Ha ruins and were quite impressed. It is a treat to be able to climb on the pyramids, and seeing a little of Belize on the way was interesting. Read Less

Wanted to get away! Found the ship very disappointing with everything, our cabin and the steward that was assigned to our room. The Buffett were disappointing, had frozen little shrimp INSTEAD of REAL shrimp! At the pool I had a problem with moving a chair, the attendants wouldn’t help me. 730 one morning there was construction going on for an hour. The front desk was called and I was told it had to b looked into! Going away to relax and get rest, not to hear drilling on the ship! The cabins are made for small people. Murphy beds on each side. So quite difficult getting into our beds, so we had to crawl from bottom up I have been on princesses before, and was very upset the way everything was handled. I asked the front desk to compensate us for us be awakened up by drilling, ask for internet, I was told they aren’t allowed to do such, but made NO attempt to do anything. The ship needs a redone, although I c it was redone 2017. Where I don’t know! The ship is pretty large,not enough people to guide u to wherever location u had to go too. The food was just ok even in island dining room! The best food was at international cafe on 5th floor, ate there often. Not enough activities at the pool location. None in fact Read Less

Just wanted a relaxing cruise away from the hustle & bustle at home. We have visited these same islands before, but there’s always new entertainment onboard and we love playing in the casino. Also love the dining experience every evening. We really enjoyed the Princess singers & dancers, and the comedian in the evening shows. Also enjoyed the steel drum person in the Piazza and one of the lounges. Disappointed with the ventriloquist but he was a very good singer otherwise. Weren’t pleased with the buffet...some of the food was dried out and cold...not appetizing. Our meals in the dining room were very good, and we had super ladies accompanying us for dinner every night, and our waiter was fantastic. The casino was so small, enjoyed some of the machines, but didn’t win of course. They never had enough ashtrays out by the smoking side of the casino. The staff at the bar were very good and prompt getting drinks. Embarkation and disembarkation were super ! Read Less
