Caribbean Princess & Elegance at Sea 

Caribbean Princess - Elegance at Sea

As part of our ongoing commitment to our clients, Purple Palm Vacations spends a lot of time learning about the cruise ships you want to sail by visiting them firsthand. We had the pleasure of sailing on the Caribbean Princess on a fun-filled 7-Night Western Caribbean cruise.  She dazzled us with her classic beauty, wonderful service, and wide variety of live entertainment options. 

We Recommend This Ship For:  Couples in their 40's and beyond
