I sailed the Caribbean Princess in November of 04. Fabulous ship. She was fairly new at the time so everything was in good condition. The rooms were large, food excellent. My husband and I enjoyed the Personal Choice dining option and truly enjoyed formal nights. We had been on the NCL Star in 2002, also quite new at the time and were surprised that very few people dressed up. Timing is important as well. We sailed on Princess the week "after" Thanksgiving and were told that the Thanksgiving week was filled with children. Not what I wanted on my cruise so we were lucky. My husband and I will be sailing in September of 06 on the NCL Dawn out of New York and know that NCL is a notch below Princess. As this will be our first time on a ship over 1 year old, I'll be interested to see the condition and service. Happy cruising. You will enjoy her immensely, I'm sure.
