MS Caribbean Princess is a Grand Class cruise ship owned and operated by Princess Cruises, with a capacity of over 3,600 passengers, the largest carrying capacity in the Princess fleet (as of 2011, Royal Princess, another Princess cruise ship, will supersede it in 2013). It has 900 balcony staterooms and a deck of mini-suites. It was the first modern cruise ship with an outdoor theater, which Princess bills as "Movies Under The Stars".
Caribbean Princess is slightly larger than the other ships in her class (Star Princess, Golden Princess, and Grand Princess), due to the addition of an additional deck of cabins called the Riviera deck. Another difference is that, being initially designed to cruise the Caribbean year-round, there is no sliding roof over the pool area for shelter in poor weather.
The Bermuda Sun reports a crew member has been accused of a sex attack on a woman on the cruise ship. The 40-year-old Filipino was charged with sexual assault in a Magistrates Court. He was accused of attacking the woman on board the Caribbean Princess, a Bermuda-registered vessel. The sailor was brought to Bermuda from Miami by the Bermuda Police Service to face the charges. Kenrick James represented the defendant. He was given $5000 bail and his trial will begin on March 7.
On March 12th, 2012, the Caribbean Princess suffered an issue to the port side propulsion engine, which required it to return to its home port of San Juan, Puerto Rico after a stopover in St. Maartin. The problem caused Princess Cruises to cancel the next two trips (scheduled for March 18th and 25th).
