Caribbean Princess Cruise Ship Info - Onboard Experience

Caribbean Princess entered service in 2004, the sister ship to the 2,600-passenger Grand Princess , once the biggest cruise ship at sea,  presented in 1998. Caribbean Princess is  113,00-tons heftier and carries  410 more passengers at a full capacity of 3100. However, , for example,  the ship like the Carnival Conquest class at 110,000 tons can carry up to 3400 passengers. This means that the space per passenger ratio on these ships, results in more spacious lounges, theaters and dining rooms that are all intimate enough to make passengers forget they are aboard a megaliner.

Thanks to the layout, multiple dining venues, four expansive outdoor deck areas (including , multiple sports facilities, four pools, and nine hot tubs, passengers are rarely concentrated in any one area. Meanwhile, the mega-ship amenities included for those who can never get enough dining, entertainment, and fitness choices, means the Princess ships of this class make the best of everything for ships in this size and price range. Their programs for younger passengers are exemplary, and their Lido buffet dining spot is open around the clock.

Caribbean Princess was the first Princess ship to offer "Movies Under the Star" - a huge flat panel projection screen showing  films outdoors next to the pool. This was such a hit that the concept has been spread to other large Princess ships sailing in the Caribbean. They recently started handing out headphones to viewers to alleviate complaints from nearby cabins.

Having offered the first wedding chapel at sea (with the Captain doing the honors) on Grand Princess, Caribbean Princess now also features a complete professional digital photography studio in the F/X Digital Photo Center for those all-important wedding photos. The medical center is one of the most advanced at sea, the first to offer real-time teleconferencing support from a leading national cardiac care center in the United States.
