Itinerary: Europe

This Transatlantic cruise was on my bucket list since I was a child, the weather was really not good and therefore this made the crossing extremely long. The tours were interesting most of all Scotland where we would definitely return.

The service on board of Princess is always excellent if I had to rate it on a 1 to 5 scale I would give them a five.

The ship is huge and that to me was unpleasant, it felt like we were living in full shopping mal.

The food was very good, I cannot say excellent but as always on Princess very good will qualify the meals.

The staterooms are extremely small and not very functional I have cruised a lot with Princess and other lines and truly have never seen such small stateroom, however we managed. Not the most pleasant however.

Due to the number of people on board, it was very hard to join activities without feeling crowed, in the ship 's defense, we knew this was a huge ship and having no experience with this size of ship we were very disappointed and will never go on such a populated vessel again.

The Lizard end in England is a must see , And Orkney Island in Scotland is wonderful and we would go back to Scotland, We had felt so crowed on the ship that we skipped all the big city like London and Paris and stuck to the small tours. All in all they were satisfying.

The Caribbean Princess is a beautiful ship with all amenities that you can dream of. However, my partner and I love to read and were expecting the Library to be what we imagine as a library, LOTS OF BOOKS, comfortable reading areas , we must say that the Library was a total disappointment. I would not dare call that a library, it is an Internet café so Caribbean Princess should specify and clarify that part of their promotion. There is no Library

Another negative on the ship is the lack of space at the Princess theater, many times we had to stand or skip the show altogether for lack of space. With the number of passengers on board, an effort should be made to accommodate everyone who wishes to see the show, perhaps by adding a third representation.
