Short and Sweet Review of Caribbean Princess Cruise4/15-4/22
 
We have never cruised with Princess before and I must say we were very disappointed with the cruise. The ship was not as nice as Royal Caribbean, it was not as clean, the food was okay. Lets just say there were alot of disappointments along with how things were ran on the ship. We will probably never go with Princess again. I will later give a full review if your interested.

Thanks

You can look up my July 2006 review and see that Marj and I loved our CP cruise. I had no problems with cleanliness of the ship or the way the ship was run. We also enjoyed the food. Please post a complete review in the review section. I am curious what your specific problems were.

Yes, please post a complete review. I'd like to hear more details about what you didn't like about the ship, the food and the upkeep. Also, was there anything you did like?

Thanks!

I too would be interested in your negative findings. We cruised the CP and found it to bright and clean. We booked a second cruise on her we liked it so much.

We also just came off of this ship and with over 30 cruises on all mainstream lines we found Caribbean Princess one of the most enjoyable of all to include one of the best entertainers in Bert Stratten,great seafood on first day in the Lido,Champagne pyramid,excellent service in dining room and specialty restaurants and also room steward.Please tell me what ther is not to like about this ship.

Also noticed that you are only showing 2 ships that you have been on and one was Carnival several years ago '''''Maybyou need to spread your wings to get a more realistic comparison as to what they all have to offer

We just cruised on the CP in March and did not have any problems. Sorry you did but I think you should give Princess another try. Once is not enough to really make a lifetime decision. We like RCI too. I especially like their Windjammer better than Princess's Horizon Court.

I am almost done with my review. I will post it tomorrow.

Just a thought to say that negative reviews are important to look at to try and get a balanced overview of the ship and its crew. I have made many cruises on different lines (almost all RCL, Carnival, and Princess) and have never had a truly bad experience. No dirty areas, surly crew, inattentive service, truly bad food or dining areas, etc. Now the casino, bars, entertainment, and goofy activities (hairy legs contest, belly flop, etc) are not my main interests on a cruise, but still I have had trouble finding any real negative instances on any of the cruises I have been on. BUT - everybody has a differering take on what transpires asea. So . . . . . . .

I too am interested in the problems you had.

We sailed the CB last July, daughter, son in law, 9 year old grandaughter, 6 year old grandson, wife and myself.

Kids had a blast in the kids program...couldn't drag the away.

Daughter and husband had a chance to go on dinner dates alone and relax together.

Wife and I enjoyed it all.

We had breakfasts together mosts mornings.

We had lunch together frequently.

We had dinner together once, the first formal night.

Actually we had 3 different cruises and we all loved it.

All had a great time. Something on this ship for everybody.

PS: Doing it again this year on the Crown.

Must be a long review. Three days since the OP said that s/he would post the "review". :-P

Not necessarily Mr. Shark. I've posted reviews, and had a lag time of over a week before showing up in the Reviews section. :shock:
