We cruised on the Caribbean Princess in 2004. We loved it! We had been on the Golden Princess the year before and it was VERY similar - almost the same layout and dinner was the same. We didn't have a problem with that because it was easier to find our way around the ship and the meals were good, so it was OK to have the same as we did on Golden. We preferred the Golden's layout better (where there were differences) and also liked that there were less people on the Golden. We really wanted to go to the night club, but were either too busy or too tired to go (and we have been on 2 Princess cruises). We are going again (Star Princess) in December and are making sure we go to the night club. We thought the fact that the Caribbean had the movie screen was cool, but we never had an opportunity to use it. If you have any other questions, feel free to ask.
