  1. My first ever cruise was on the Caribbean Princess in 2005. Was hooked from day one. Became elite last June. My parents loved cruising and started with Sitmar. Lost my mom on New year's day. Booked the May 4 day on Caribbean Princess to see if I can enjoy a cruise without her.
  2. I had the wine package a few years ago. Mom got sick for the last 3 or 4 days of the cruise and we didn't go to dinner. Last night I went to Horizon Court and ordered the last 4 bottles of wine. No problem. I took those bottles to the casino and gave them to the host for the staff to enjoy.
  3. Thanks all. Don't usually do short cruises Unless it's followed by another cruise but just lost my favorite cruise partner (mom) after a long difficult illness. She was a milestone Princess cruiser who took me on my first cruise (on the Caribbean Princess) in 2004 or 5. I know I have said this before but the formal night photos throughout the years are treasured. I want to leave some for my children.
  4. Just booked 4 day Caribbean on Caribbean Princess. Is there a formal night?
  5. I will admit I have not read all the post as the thread was old and resurrected. But sailed the CB in early June in a suite. We were warned one night that there might be a wait the following night (1st formal). It was maybe 10 minutes. But another night (can't remember which) we arrived to be told it would be about a half hour. We were going to leave and come back when they decided to seat us in the early traditional side. I do not think that waiter was happy as most of his tables were on dessert. But he took it in stride and did the best he could - with the CC head waiter on his back the entire time.

  6. I didn't find the casino too overcrowded. I was always able to find something to play. Drink services was rather slow so we often had to track someone down. I have always enjoyed the Caribbean Princess but I was not very impressed with the new buffet offerings. Crown Grill was great and the MDR ok. Staff are great. I think it's a happy ship. It's nice to have a Princess ship in Florida all summer. My intire family is sick with upper respiratory bug that my mom brought home from the ship. Just finished going through the mail that arrived while we were onboard. Found my invite to the 75k tournament. Would love to go but not sure my mom could handle the flight. Wish it was still in the Caribbean Sent from my SM-G930V using Forums mobile app
  7. I was just off the CB and offered a 10 day ocean view to Alaska, Mexico, California coastal or Caribbean. Tried to book yesterday but was told to call back in a week or so as the ship had not sent in the details. I would be interested to know the sail and ship date of that $200k tournament. Wonder if I will be invited. Sent from my SM-G930V using Forums mobile app
  8. Agree! Just got off the Caribbean Princess in an aft suite. It was a struggle for my 84 year old mom. She will be happier midship even if it's an inside. Sent from my SM-G930V using Forums mobile app
  9. I am suddenly very excited about the cruise I booked today aboard the Regal for January next year. Sent from my SM-G930V using Forums mobile app
  10. I have been on Regal and/or Royal 5 times midship deck 8. Thanks to Renmar's (Theo's) extensive research. Never experienced noise from below or elevators. But then again I enjoy hanging in the casino or Bellini's in the evenings. Sent from my SM-G930V using Forums mobile app
  11. Mid ship Emerald deck are the best value. For little more than an inside you can get a "caribe" sized balcony. Look at E425. Sent from my SM-G930V using Forums mobile app
  12. I have been thinking of trying NCL again as it has been 11 years. But seeing these comments maybe not. We did have a good time as it was my parents 50th anniversary and there were 15 of us. Somehow my only real memory was a night in the MDR ordering spaghetti carbonara (my favorite ). I stuck a fork in it and lifted the entire mess up in one clump. Worst ship food I have ever experienced. Sent from my SM-G930V using Forums mobile app
  13. Oh I forgot to add we had a great time on this cruise. Only left the ship in St. Thomas to me for the first time my great niece and mother's first great grandchild. And a quick stop in St. Marten for shopping. We were sailing to relax and enjoy the ship. Sent from my SM-G930V using Forums mobile app
  14. I also wouldn't give up on Princess from the issues I personally experienced on this cruise. I also wouldn't give up on the Caribbean Princess. She was my first cruise in 2004. But that doesn't make the issues reported any less real. I love Princess. Just became elite. Looking for my next Princess cruise now. But that doesn't change the facts. On the June 9th sailing of the Caribbean Princess the food in the new buffet sucked. Ship smelled of sewage.. It's been reported and confirmed by more than a few on that cruise. I am happy those on other sailings did not experience the same things. But we did. Sent from my SM-G930V using Forums mobile app
