  3. Caribbean Princess
We just returned from a 7 night cruise on the Carribean Princess. It was just OK. Maybe we are spoiled because our last cruise was on the Regal Princess which was amazing. Pros -Medallion Class is awesome. I could always find my travel companions. -Concierge website was great to check account balances and events. -OceanCompass and OceanNow are great. -Embarkation and disembarking were so fast and easy. -Friendly bartenders that remembered you. No long lines for drinks. Shout out to Melissa at the casino & Mo at Churchill’s). -Decent Casino with room to move around. -Crown Grill was fantastic and went twice (shout out to Alexander & Christian) -Sabatini’s was good -Good itinerary -Quality food in main dining room, but not as good as Regal -Excellent fitness center, large and spacious -Decorated our door for my birthday and gave a free specialty restaurant cover and $25 for on board shops. A really nice surprise. -Good variety of table games in the casino -Churchill’s Cigar bar is large with a great bar inside it -Excellent Internet speed. I could stream Netflix with no issue. -Beds were very comfy. Cons -The buffet layout is atrocious. If one side is closed you have to go outside and come in another side. No sign telling you the side is closed. Traffic in buffet is disarrayed. Food is ok, but not great (lunch) -Ship Layout is awful. You can’t get there from here....up, down, around. -Constantly out of pizza. The pizza was great....if you wanted to wait while the lines stacked up -The adults only pool in the front has only about 12 loungers which are taken bright and early and not given up even if people were not there. No other space or shade. -The thermal spa is tiny with only 4 loungers. Not worth the price. -Limited smoking areas and none with loungers. Mostly under cover or standing only. (pro or con, depending on your point of view

Ok, but....
