Mobile Opinions on princess cruises

Hi, as above & in particular Caribbean princess. Myself & DH are newbies to cruises but found an itinerary & price for a western Caribbean cruise with princess. My finger is hovering above the book button however, Ive read some poor reviews on cruise critic but because I trust dibbers views a whole lot more, Im looking for your opinions & reviews.

Ive never been with Princess, but have done the Caribbean with Tui Marella cruises.
I am on a FB group for Marella and many peiople on there are cruise experts having cruised with all the companies, so can offer good advice.

Our trip with Marella was fabulous, they are All Inclusive cruises ,so no added extras to pay for, their Caribbean itinerary was great visiting 11 islands in 14 days, only 1 sea day each week.

We've sailed on Ruby Princess and loved everything about it. The food was the best we've had on any cruise (including DCL).

As someone above has already mentioned see if there is a Facebook group (if you do Facebook) for the ship as the people on there seem to have a much more balanced view than those who like to use Cruise Critic, or they certainly do for the Marella fleet. If I'd listened to the CC forums I'd have missed out on two amazing cruises on Marella.

Our second cruise was with Princess - we jumped in with 2 feet so to speak and went from a 7 nights Fjords to a 15 night trans atlantic one!

We have done a couple more since then and we both agree that for service, food, and all round quality the Princess one was the best - certainly better than our Celebrity one and they are supposed to be amazing.

We would happily travel with Princess again - plus today they are doing a 1 deposit on some 2021 cruises too.

We've only had 6 cruises so our experience may not be too extensive. Two with Carnival in the Caribbean, two in the Med with RCI and two with Princess, one to the Caribbean and one to the Canaries. Oddly enough both on Emerald.

The experience of Princess was perfectly fine in terms of the cabin, entertainment and food. Shore excursions in the Caribbean were good as well (I think we did 7 ports in ten days)

Only minor criticism was the choice of excursions in the Canaries.

We are soon going back on the Regal Princess & have been on her sister ship the Royal but we havent done the Caribbean Princess.
We really like Princess, the ships are lovely, food great as is entertainment. Drinks are expensive but thats fairly general when cruising.
Cruise critic reviews are like Trip Advisor, people who like to complain are more likely to post than those who have a great time.
We have cruised Carnival, good but less shops and entertainment venues & Royal Caribbean which we would say is comparable standard wise with Princess for service and dining.
