My husband and I have only sailed on Princess cruises (Coral and Golden) in balcony cabins or mini-suites and have always loved our cruises! We're trying to decide on booking a cruise on the Caribbean Princess or trying Holland America (Zuiderdam) since we can book an SS cabin (384 sf balcony cabin) at the same rate as a balcony cabin on Princess. We've read some so-so reviews on Zuiderdam and just wonder if anyone has actually been on both ships and can give us some first-hand insight.
Also, has anyone booked a back balcony cabin on the Caribbean Princess? Same size cabin/balcony as mid-ship?
Thanks for taking the time to provide us with information to help make this decision!!
JJ if you and your husband are looking for more of a "traditional, old-style elegance" (for lack of a better choice of words) laid-back cruise experience then give HAL a try. HAL won't have as many goings-on, as the CP
