Introducing: the Princess Luxury Bed. The Caribbean Princess is one of several ships in the Princess fleet to be outfitted with a new class of bedding in its luxury suites to ensure a more restful night’s sleep. Developed by sleep expert Dr. Michael Breus, the bed features a supportive medium-firm mattress topped by a two-inch plush pillow top. Luxurious woven cotton sheets and an assortment of pillows complete the setup.
Dining & Gastronomy
With the Caribbean Princess’s 2017 refurbishment came an expansion in fine dining. While popular classics such as the Crown Grill Steakhouse and the Curtis Stone gourmet dining experience were left untouched, the poolside Salty Dog Grill got an upgrade to include more gourmet options, and a seafood restaurant and a barbecue were introduced. Perhaps the most impressive new restaurant is Sabatini’s Italian Trattoria, an acclaimed specialty restaurant serving authentic Italian five-star cuisine.
Entertainment and Activities
The popular Movies under the Stars has also been updated, with a high-definition screen, improved sound system and wider screen giving moviegoers that true movie theater experience. An updated top deck bar encourages a lively atmosphere with its bright colors and well-lit seating area, and the new and improved Coffee & Cones provides sweet treats and hot beverages the whole family can enjoy. Princess regulars won’t miss out on their favorite live entertainment shows, with popular productions such as “The Voice of the Ocean” singing contest and the Broadway-style musical “Magic to Do” taking place in the Princess Theater.
While Princess cruises are known for their laid-back atmosphere, the dress code on board the Caribbean Princess is more like smart casual, with most passengers wearing long pants during the day and dress pants, collared shirts or blouses encouraged for evening dining. On formal night, dresses and tuxedos are required to attend dinner at the onboard restaurants. Even on formal nights, the ship’s buffet remains casual, with anything except beachwear allowed.
