First day was normal, everyone walking around trying to find their cabin on this massive vessel. You should make reservations early if you plan on experiencing the 2 restaurants on board; Sterling's Steakhouse- I recommend the filet mignon princess cut...one word, fabulous or Sabinitini's ...one word superb. You should at least try one of them, but book as soon as you settle in your cabin.
Our steward, Weerapun was nothing short of fantastic, he was at our beck and call. The bartenders gave everyone that walked up to counter friendly, courtesy service; if you get a chance visit the lobby bar and speak with Samir or Shaun --- fabulous gentleman.
The passenger's desk was ok. I guess standing on your feet for approx. 10-12hrs a day you tend to get snappy and short but hey, everyone has a bad day.
The boutiques and casino are a must see. The pools were crowded and chairs were at a premium especially on sea days, get there early. The entertainment was so-so. The 2 shows we saw were phenominal, Bert Stratton and Steve Morris. If you get a chance to see either -- do it, you will enjoy it.
In closing, Caribbean Princess is a beautiful ship, massive but beautiful.
