Hi Michele & Jeff,
I sailed with the Caribbean Princess this past November on the Western Itinerary. I have cruised with other lines previously and this was my first Princess expirence. As a expirenced cruiser I can tell you that you will love the Caribbean Princess. The ship is beautiful the staff is wonderfull and there are endless things to do. I was totaly impressed with the atmosphere of the ship. I know you will have a great time. Be sure to come back and let us know how it went.
