Caribbean Princess
Ranked #43 of 133 cruise ships

This impressive ship features spacious interiors and a wide range of attractive public rooms and intimate places. It offers plenty of activities for adults and children alike and easily seems to absorb the large number of passengers carried. Passengers on the Caribbean Princess tend to be mixed ages and American and British depending on region and ship.. When all cabins have double occupancy, the ship provides a space ratio of 36.6 tons per passenger and a crew to passenger ratio of one for every 2.6 passengers. At full capacity the space ratio is 29.7 tons per passenger and the crew ratio is one to 3.2 passengers.

John cruised on May 2008
We took a 9 night Caribbean cruise out of New York at the end of June. Overall we rated the cruise highly, although we got our timings wrong.

Thinking that we would miss the school holidays, we completely missed the fact that US schools finish in early June. The result - over 600 kids on the ship, many of them high school graduates in large family celebration parties, wandering around wearing matching t shirts! To be fair they weren\'t too much trouble on the ship, although you couldn\'t get in the swimming pools.Strict American rules on drinking under the age of 21 meant that drunkeness was never a problem.

We found ...
the food and service to be very good, although the quantities some of the Yanks ate had to be seen to be believed - a snack of three burgers and two large pizza slices around the pool seemed to be quite common.

We had a balcony cabin which I would highly recommend. It just seemed to give a different dimension to the cabin. It also meant that my brother-in-law could smoke on his balcony rather than have to go up on deck.

The entertainment was, in the main, very good, with many acts being regulars on US TV. The poorest act by far was a British comedy/music duo who were excruciatingly bad and managed to virtually empty the theatre by the end of their performance. They did a second stint later in the cruise which we avoided like the plague. The cruise director and the majority of his team were British and very good. Apparently there were only 20 Americans amongst the 1250 crew on the ship, although there were 45 different nations represented.

The islands visited were Grand Turk, Puerto Rico, St Thomas and Bermuda. We didn\'t take any of the organised tours, preferring to make our own way around.

The ship developed engine problems early on in the cruise, which meant that we were late into some of the ports, most notably Bermuda, but they gave everybody on board a $75 credit on their shipboard account to compensate.

Would I go back on the ship again? Yes - but I would make sure that I avoided holiday periods.

Leonard Victor Woodward cruised on August 2006
Just returned from East & West Caribbean Cruise during Sptember 2007. Excellent holiday only let down by poor entertainment which relies too heavily on comedians,they should recruit the staff and Cruise Directors from Thompsons Cruise Ships who always put on real song and dance shows,the only other problem was lack of shade from the hot sun as there was none apart from around the 2 main pools but the noise from the outdoor cinema combined with the Jazz Band or constantly blaring music meant moving to another unshaded part of the ship where the sun was too hot to laze in, a few Awnings or Parasols would most certainly help. Would certainly cruise again with this line hoping that the above niggles would have been addressed.
