Caribbean Princess

Though a large vessel with capacity for just over 3,100 passengers, Caribbean Princess has numerous smaller areas and venues that make the cruise feel like a more intimate experience. The vibe on board is relaxed sophistication and, as with any Princess ship, the service, food, and entertainment are all well-executed and offer many choices.

What We Love

Plenty of Pools and Lounge Chairs: With five pools and two splash pools, there's lots of space to relax, and you won't need to stress over finding a lounge chair.

Jr. CHEF@Sea Program: A small group of children accompanied by their parents get to go behind the scenes in the ship’s galley and learn how to decorate a cake, which is later delivered to your cabin for the family to enjoy.

Sabatini's: If you want a culinary experience to remember, specialty restaurant Sabatini’s is the place for Italian cuisine.

Best Known For

Wedding Chapel: Princess Cruises was the first line to have an at-sea wedding chapel, and this dedicated space is ideal for your "I do’s" and vow renewals.

Movies Under the Stars: A large poolside screen sets the stage for watching films on a lounge chair. Hot popcorn and blankets are provided.

Who It's Best For

Romantics: In the tradition of “The Love Boat,” Caribbean Princess is a great choice for weddings and anniversary couples looking to renew their vows.

Families: The ship has wonderful youth and teen programs, plus family-friendly, all-ages activities, including the family fun fair, which takes over the main Piazza for games, crafts, cookie decorating, and face painting.

Don't Say We Didn't Warn You

High-Adrenaline Activities Are Lacking: The fun here is of the low-key variety.
