Disappointment with Entertainment

Embarkation was very good and well organised, the ship is lovely and clean, the staff very friendly for most of the bars and restaurants. The entertainment was awful and not what anyone other than Americans would call entertainment, this made the whole trip poor because wherever you went you were bombarded by really poor so called entertainment, this was compares asking guest to run around ...

This was our first venture into a cruise holiday and we chose this particular route as it enabled us to sail from Southampton which meant we had the first three days at sea which was perfect to relax and settle into the holiday. Getting on board was very slickly handled with no queuing, clear instructions and very helpful crew. The bags are taken from your car as you pull up so no carrying of ...

First Time Cruiser

Our first ever cruise (probably not our last). This was an overall enjoyable cruise. We are a fully able English couple in our late 50s who, in the main, like to do our own thing. I'm not particularly social whereas my wife can talk to anybody. First off tips for new cruisers: Princess uses American power so bring a US to UK adapter and UK extension lead which you can use for all your ...

Travelled with my 13 year old daughter. We have done 2 Princess cruises prior to this and 7 in total including other lines. EMBARKATION Quick, pleasant. Onboard within 15 minutes of arriving at 12 noon. Room was ready for us. Wonderful staff in all the ship. Always said hello and were extremely helpful and polite in all departments. Captain gave information on navigation daily. His ...

Very Good First Cruise

Having nothing to compare the Caribbean Princess with and reading some of the reviews, I wondered what I had let myself in for. All I can say l was pleasantly surprised. Sure the Ships is looking a bit tired but she goes in for a refit next year. From the moment of embarkation (which was very quick and efficient) to the point of disembarkation (the only let down) we could find nothing to ...

We travelled the first week of the school summer holidays, if you don't like kids don't travel in the school holidays!! There were a lot of teens on board but they were no trouble and all polite and well behaved, so what, they may have been noisey at times but they're on HOLIDAY. We had a mini suite on deck 9 it was lovely and clean our only probelm was the sofa bed my daughter had to sleep ...

Embarked on above date, greeted with an disgusting smell. Which lingered along the whole of deck 15. From beginning to end of cruise the toilet facilities were apalling. At least one toilet (out of 3) were "out of service" for the majority of the cruise. Sometimes two out of three. Deck 16 had no working toilets on the deck. The food in cafe caribe/horizon court was poor. Often cold or unedible. ...

Great food and service, but overall experience let down by relentless selling.

This was our 3rd cruise, and first with Princess. Primarily picked this particular cruise because it fitted in with my leave, and all the ports were places that we had never been to before, and so could get a 'sighter' for longer visits. Embarkation: Very easy. Booked our parking with CPS, so drove straight to the terminal, unloaded, and walked into the departure area. We were on Baja deck ...

Just disembarked Caribbean Princess Yesterday in Southampton (June 12TH). Will write a review over the next few days in the separate review section, just posting these comments on all of the previous poor reviews as to the general condition of the ship. Found the ship to be in good condition overall and is definitely not a "dirty girl "as posted recently. We found her to be very clean, but worn ...

Having cruised previously with princess in the Caribbean, I was sadly disappointed on this trip. It appears they have huge problems with the dine anytime system. If you wish to eat at 5.30pm it will be fine,anytime after 7pm there is usually an hour wait standing in a queue,sometimes even longer. On the second day of our cruise, it was my friends birthday,at 9pm with still a long queue we paid ...
