Caribbean Princess - November 2016

I joined Caribbean Princess in Fort Lauderdale on 27th. November for a six day Western Caribbean cruise. The ship is very similar to Golden Princess which, overall, I prefer but of course I had a great time as always.

After disembarking from Royal Princess on 26th. November, I checked into the Fort Lauderdale Hilton hotel for the night. It's a comfortable hotel with a great beer garden and as most guests are people joining cruise ships the next day it has a festive atmosphere.

Eurodam sailing that afternoon.

Caribbean Princess just arrived from her previous cruise 27th. November.

Some much appreciated welcome gifts. The Chilean chardonnay was delicious.

A surprise delivery of cheese and crackers to my cabin. I don't know how many people they thought I was feeding.
