  3. Caribbean Princess
We choose this cruise because we had not been to some of the ports offered on this cruise before, and because we wanted something different to do during the Christmas and New Year holidays. Because we love the Caribbean, this was our 3rd Caribbean cruise. The cruise as a whole was awesome, the weather was good, the food was good and the company was good. I have to say, this is the first time we have had such a delightful cabin stewart. She was so happy and friendly all the time. And she keep our cabin immaculate and well stocked for our needs. You will be lucky if you get her on your cruise. Her name is Hedy. Sweet girl. Entertainment on the Caribbean Princess was great. The dancers and singers of the Princess theater was very professional. We enjoyed all their performances. I have to say that not all the staff on this cruise were as friendly as we have encountered on other cruises. Maybe they were just having a bad day. Also, we felt the food at the buffet was not as good as we have had on other ships. One more thing. The balloon drop for New Year’s Eve celebration was advertised in the Patter as to start at 10:45p.m. (Which we thought was odd, but then assumed that they decided to have it early to accommodate the young children and seniors) So everyone was gathered in the Piazza anxiously waiting for the drop, when it was finally announced that the balloon drop would be at midnight. Everybody moaned and and then started to leave the Piazza and head back to their cabins. Very bad mistake by someone. Poor planning. I hate to complain, but these are things we noticed compared to our other cruises.

Love to cruise to the Caribbean

Cabin Review

Premium Balcony
Cabin B2 C610
Our cabin was sufficient since it was a balcony cabin. But we were offered an upgrade to a Premium Balcony which only gave us a larger balcony, not more cabin room, but it was nice anyway.
