Caribbean Princess

Balcony dining among many innovations

True to her name, Princess's first ship solely dedicated to Caribbean offers passengers a medley of special Caribbean-themed dining, entertainment and activity options.

Caribbean PrincessThe ship’s destination-specific innovations include an elegant Caribbean dining option with rotating local specialties, festive deck parties, a special stage show and several dining innovations created to take full advantage of passengers’ private balconies.

Says Rai Caluori, senior vice president of hotel operations: “Caribbean Princess passengers will enjoy a casual and fun atmosphere that incorporates the tastes, sights and sounds of their destination. From rum punch and jerk chicken to Calypso music and vibrant decor, we wanted to pull out all the stops to give our passengers a true Caribbean experience.”

Among the many special Caribbean touches are

Dining

Cafe Caribe - The flavours of the Caribbean can be savoured in an all-new dining area exclusive to the Caribbean Princess. The Cafe Caribe concept was created to allow passengers to savour the flavors of the Caribbean in a casual setting, reminiscent of an island hot spot. Although the open kitchen format is sure to provide entertainment value, this innovative dining venue also features live music nightly.
Balcony Dinner/Breakfast - In an industry first, Caribbean Princess passengers can enjoy The Ultimate Balcony Dinner - an all-inclusive evening featuring cocktails, fresh flowers, champagne and a deluxe four-course meal, all served on passengers’ private balconies. And for those who prefer to begin the day with romance, order the Ultimate Balcony Breakfast, featuring Cuban specialty pastries, tropical fruit salad in a pineapple boat, chilled marinated shrimp with papaya relish, warm egg and tomato pie with cheese gratin and a split of French champagne.

Onboard Entertainment

Movies Under the Stars - The 300-square-foot LED poolside screen featured on Caribbean Princess will show a variety of entertainment throughout the day, including up to three feature length films. In addition to family cinema, first run hits, and late night movies, passengers will be able to catch major sporting events and other can’t-miss programmes. Lounge chair reservations will be available for film screenings through the Princess Concierge.
Island Nights - A special top deck sailaway party features local entertainers, prizes, food and plenty of festive cocktails and mocktails. And to continue the fun, Princess combines the tradition of Island Night with the concept of island hoping, offering “Caribbean Carnivale” celebrations at both the Terrace and Neptune’s Reef pools simultaneously at the midpoint of each sailing.

Caribbean Caliente - A new stage show designed specially for Caribbean Princess pulses with music from Caribbean-area destinations such as Cuba, Jamaica, Puerto Rico, Miami, Mexico and other Latin America countries. Passengers can enjoy songs and lively dance numbers featuring hits from contemporary Latin artists such as Ricky Martin, Luis Miguel, Enrique Iglesias and Gloria Estefan; long-time favorites Tito Puente and Celia Cruz; and island-style music from singers such as Bob Marley.

Lotus Spa - There’s a host of new, unique, marine-based spa treatments and services with the introduction of its all-new Lotus Spa, operated exclusively by the line. Among the new concepts are a teen programme, men’s treatments and a number of unique treatments developed especially for calls at Princess Cays, including beach massage, pre and post-island sun care treatments, Thalasso therapy and relaxation classes.
