What "Caribbean ship"? Do you mean the Caribbean Princess? Or a ship in the Caribbean Sea?

There are other Princess ships sailing thru the Caribbean at the moment, hence the confusion. I wondered the same thing.

Thank you. Glad it wasn't only me that thought the thread title was unclear.

Default Looks to be off Long Island/Cape Cod

Yep, there is a storm pounding NE today.
Ships location can be found at ****************************/schiffsposition.php?schiff=Caribbean+Princess

Seas do appear to be a bit testy !

Chrysalis, let's not be petty, in the UK the grammar in that case would have been....Ship in the Caribbean in Storm


Look, it's like this....if this was a Macdonald's forum and I complain about the chips/chicken, someone says..do you mean MacDonald's chips/chicken?

No, that's not it. You're missing the point. The point is that your thread was vague. Instead of automatically assuming what you meant, I chose to ask questions so that we were talking about the same thing.

The ship is called the Caribbean Princess. If you're referring to it, you should use the name or the acronym. A "ship in the Caribbean" could be any one of about 50 different ships, or at least about 5 different Princess ships at the moment.

I was just trying to figure out what you meant.

jeese, I know it would but I named the thread..Caribbean ship in Storm...on a Princess cruise thread!! i.e...the Caribbean ship.
It's not on the P & O or the Holland and American forums
Anyway have a nice day, I'm off out now.

....and to add to that, just because it is posted on the Princess thread does not automatically mean it relates to Princess. So you reference to McDonalds is meaningless.

Take a look the the main Princess page here and note the threads that have nothing to do with Princess cruise lines. I won't bother to count them, but there are quiet a few.

I don't feel so bad knowing that I was not the only one who knew what you were talking about. We were only seeking clarification, not a lesson in grammar.

If you knew what she was talking about, why feel so bad?

More than a dozen posts and we still have only rumors! Someone better bloody well get on the horn to THE Caribbean Ship (not just any, mind you!) and get us some facts!
