I will also post this to the review section, but without the pictures ... CARIBBEAN PRINCESS â€“ July 2010 This cruise is nine nights round trip to the Caribbean from New York. I am traveling with a small group that corresponds with each other via one of the treads on a forum for people that enjoy cruising. We have been participating in this thread for about two years, but we have never met â€“ yet. This is my fifteenth cruise, but first on Princess. At the request of someone who wanted more details, I have been writing my reviews while on the ship, while the events are still fresh in my mind (or what is left of my mind). I hope you find the review useful (or entertaining). I am trying something different this time. I have installed photo editing software on my laptop, so hopefully Iâ€™ll be able to include some photographs with the review (at least on the review I will put on the main board - the review in the review section will only have links to the photographs). Saturday, July 10 â€“ Travel to the port Fortunately (for me), JetBlue offers a non-stop from Burbank (a smaller, passenger friendly airport when compared to LAX). I saved some money by taking a taxi and leaving the car at home. The parking for eleven days cost more than a round trip via taxi. The A320â€™s engines are rather loud. I was in one of the seats with the extra leg room, and the middle of the three seats was empty. So all in all it was a nice flight - except for the engine noise (which I guess is better than the alternative). It was the first time Iâ€™ve flown over the Great Lakes. Wow, they are big! At any rate, we landed in New York; I got my luggage and headed to Manhattan. I was here two years ago to do a five night Canada cruise on the Carnival Victory, but didnâ€™t get to Time Square that time. This time I picked a hotel that is two blocks from Times Square. The rooms are small (about the same size as the shipâ€™s cabins) but Iâ€™m only here one night and I wanted to be close to Times Square (without spending a fortune). Upon arriving at the hotel I checked in, put away my stuff, grabbed my camera and headed out to Times Square. Wow, there are a lot of people here. Many, like me, have cameras and about half donâ€™t speak English. At any rate, after a few pictures it was back to the hotel and begin writing my review. Then I upload the photos and off to dinner. Then I plan to go back out to Times Square to get some night time photographs.
