About Princess Cruises
Princess Cruises offers classy cruises with an international atmosphere. The cruise line, which now has one of the largest fleets with 18 ships, startet its success story more than 50 years ago with a single ship cruising along the Mexican Riviera. Meanwhile, the ships of the cruise are sailing on all of the seven seas and cruise along varied routes at all continents. The atmosphere on board the ships is relaxed and comfortable, instead of large rooms you will find also on the larger ships rather smaller cafes and bars. However, the stylish ambience and the excellent cuisine ensure a classic cruise feeling. Also, more and more German guests discover Princess Cruises for themselves, so on many cruises German speaking tour guides will be on board. Nevertheless, you should have basic English language skills.
The Caribbean Princess was built in 2004 and is the "mother" of the Princess fleet. The ship has has a length of 290 m and can accommodate up to 3,140 passengers. In 2017 the Caribbean Princess was recently modernized. It offers 900 cabins with balconies, excellent cuisine, attentive service and many entertainment options. The board currency is the US dollar. All services are subject to a service charge, as it is common on international ships.
All cabins on board the Caribbean Princess are very cosy and comfortable equipped and offer plenty of space. There are 900 cabins, a complete deck of mini suites, with a own balcony. The inside cabins are 14-15 square meters in size while the outside cabins measure about 15-20 square meters and balcony cabins 16-25 square meters. The size of the suites varies between 28 and 122 square meters depending on the category.
Atmosphere on Board
You will enjoy all the amenities and varied possibilities of a large ship while you feel secure and personally cared for, as if you were crossing the seas on a small ship. Contributing to this are the many small bars and lounges as well as the good, unobtrusive and personal service of Princess Cruises. Comfortable casual wear is recommended during the day, matching the visited destination. In the evening, the guests also like to dress a little more chic and choose sporty chic or elegant clothes.
Food and Beverages
One of the cruise lines quality features is its excellent cuisine. In addition to the main restaurant with various dining rooms, there are also some specialty restaurants on board, where you can enjoy delicacies from all over the world (at an extra cost). Special treats can be found in the patisserie or the ice cream bar. At the Casual-Dining Restaurant, you can enjoy a poolside snack and choose from a variety of dishes, including seafood, pizza and the Salty Dog Grill. Our tip: If you do not want to be tied to fixed table times, please note the "Anytime Dining". Then you can eat in a separate area of the main restaurant whenever you want. For that you relinquish a "fixed table" for a fixed table time in the main restaurant.
Entertainment, Sports and Relaxation
Whether you prefer calm relaxation or want to dance the night away in the disco: From piano music over a live band to disco - on board the Caribbean Princess every guest gets their money's worth. Evenings feature elaborate Broadway-style shows in the grand theater.

In the Hot Spots life pulsates also late at night. Hot spots on board are for example the casino, Skywalkers Nightclub, Calypso or Tradewinds Bar.
