  1. Thank you everyone, for the incredibly helpful feedback. Here's a few more things: We are not huge pool people - some of us are photosensitive so really need to stick to shade. While we like a *little* time in the pools, we don't typically spend much time on the pool/sun decks. So, those amenities are not as important to us. That said, it is really nice to hear that the pools on this shop are plentiful and not as cramped. I definitely hear you @BRANDEE - The Breakaway pool deck was incredibly crowded. Lucky for us to not be pool-people! For entertainment, we typically would spend more time at lounges with live music... also love bingo and games.... none of us are dance party folks :) I think we would all enjoy the enrichment talks that Princess offers. We are used to spending a full day going from activity to activity... would that be possible on Caribbean Princess, or would we find ourselves with a lot of down-time? Can guests get away with pretty casual dress, outside of dinner time? How's the casino? Thanks again, all - you have been SUPER helpful!
  2. You all are incredibly helpful - will share this feedback with the family! Here's a few more things: We are not huge pool people - some of us are photosensitive so really need to stick to shade. While we like a *little* time in the pools, we don't typically spend much time on the pool/sun decks. So, those amenities are not as important to us. That said, we will definitely spend some time with our baby in the splash pad area. For entertainment, we typically would spend more time at lounges with live music... not really into big theater production musicals. That said, we would probably be interested in seeing the water shows or ice rink shows, just for the novelty. How's the food compare on these ships? How about the crowded-ness feel during peak times? Again - thanks so much! You all are awesome and we really appreciate your help.
  3. Hi all - hoping to get some insights from anyone who has been on Carnival Horizon and Norwegian Breakaway class ships. We are primarily NCL cruisers and have never been with Carnival, but Horizon has piqued our interest. We’re looking at this ship, RC Symphony or Harmony of the Seas, or Caribbean Princess. Would love to hear your opinions about how Horizon compares to NCL Escape or Breakaway, in terms of general vibe, activities, food, crowdedness, etc. Also, if you have any thoughts on how Horizon compares to the Symphony or Harmony, would love to know as well. This will be a family trip for us, our 1 year old, and our parents in their 60s-70s. Many thanks!
  4. Hi all, hoping you can assist our family with deciding on our April 2020 cruise. We have sailed primarily NCL ships (most recently Escape and Breakaway) and have done one on RC’s Majesty of the Seas. We’re trying to get a sense of activities and general vibe of Caribbean Princess in relation to those ships we’ve been on before. We will be traveling with our 1 year old, and our parents who are in their 70s. From our research so far, it seems like the ship is nicely appointed but perhaps a little more sedate and than what we are accustomed to on NCL. One of our parents really prefers casual dress, dining and activities, and I’m concerned that they might feel this ship/ line is too “buttoned-up”. Any insights greatly appreciated!
