You can not pre book the specialty restaurants, however you'll have no problems getting reservations once onboard. 99% of the time the Princess specialty restaurants are not overbooked.

On the CP you're likely to notice more crowding than you have on Celebrity ships.

You'll find more variety and choices in entertainment on Princess than you experienced on Celebrity.

I was on the Caribbean Princess back in May 05. The food was great! We dined both in the main restaurant and in the lido restaurant for dinner. At dinnertime, the lido restaurant's tables get covered in a linen tablecloth and water glasses are placed on the tables just like in the main dining room. The lido restaurant also features full bar service. There is a huge LED screen that plays movies at the midship pool. The entertainment on the ship was so good that I was barely ever in my cabin. I hope you enjoy your cruise!

I was on the CB November 12-19, 2005 and went to the maitre d's table set up outside of the Wheelhouse Bar to book the Sterling Steakhouse as soon as they opened on sailaway day (believe it was about 4 PM). No problem booking - and the meal was outstanding as was the service. Highly recommend.
