However I've not seen the leel of buzz around CP as I did with the early sailings of the Diamond . Well with the exception of Movies under the Stars that is. So if anyone would Like to post there opinions os the Carribean Princess it would be appriciated

Hi
We are going on the Caribbean Princess 1/22/05.
I have heard a lot of positive reviews.
What I heard it the ship is very nice.
Some people like Personal Choice dinning and some did not. We have decided to do traditional.
We are taking our kids (12 and 9) with us.
We are looking forward to it. Please post your review when you get back.

We went on the Caribbean Princess in July 2004. It was great (read our review at http://www.cruisereviews.com/Princes...nPrincess1.htm) but very similar to the Golden (same meals and everything). It was very crowded at the night time activities. We had to leave some of them early to grab seats at other ones, just to be able to see the show.

Let me know if you have ane specific questions after reading my review.

We have mostly cruised on Carnival and Princess but have thought about Disney. We really unjoyed Disney World and used to go there every year and stay in the resort for 10 to 14 days. It was a good value to us until Eisner took over and to us priced gouged. The last time we were there was 1991 because of this. Disney cruises seem to be more expensive but may be worth the cost if it has the same qualities as Disney World. We enjoyed eating in their restaurants and loved the Stuffed French Toast for breakfast at the Polynesian Restaurant. Would like your input if the Disney is worth the extra cost? Do they serve the same menu items as in Disney World? We bought a Disney Cookbook but have never made anything from it, too much work.

Thanks

Disney doesn't really do anything "special" that other cruise lines don't do, to make it worth the extra cost. You're paying for the Disney brand and for the characters on board. One of the restaurants, Animator's Palate, was pretty neat though. The entire restaurant starts out all black and white, including the waiters' vests, and during the course of the meal, everything changes to color (the walls, paintings on the walls, and the waiters reverse their vests to color). It is really awesome. As for the food that they serve, we didn't really care for it, since we are "meat and potatoes" people. They had a french resturant (Lumiere's) that served french food, the adult only Palo's Italian restaurant, that served Italian meals that weren't to our liking, a Caribbean type restaurant and Animator's Palate, that served cavier and smoked salmon for appetizers. It was hard for us to find stuff to eat. Now, this was within the first few months of them setting sail, so I am guessing that things have improved, and they now offer more choices for those of us that don't like those kinds of foods.
