MY HUSBAND AND I SAILED ON THE CROWN PRINCESS 5/30/07 OUT OF BROOKLYN. WE LIVE ABOUT 45 MINUTES FROM THE PIER. WE ARE IN OUR 60'S, VERY ACTIVE. WE HAD A BB CATEGORY ON THE CARIBE DECK. THIS WAS OUR 20TH CRUISE AND WE WERE VERY DISAPPOINTED WITH PRINCESS. WE CHOSE THIS SHIP BECAUSE OF THE PORTS OF CALL AND THAT WE COULD DRIVE TO THE PIER. THE WEATHER WAS VERY HOT AND THE SEAS WERE CALM. THAT PART OF THE CRUISE WAS GREAT.
BERMUDA WAS WONDERFUL. TURKS AND CAICOS VERY LIMITED SHOPPING. BEACH RIGHT OFF THE PIER. ST. THOMAS HAVE BEEN THERE BEFORE. SAN JUAN WAS HOT,HOT. WENT TO CASINO ACROSS FROM THE PIER. THE LAYOUT OF THE SHIP IS CONFUSING. THE COMMON AREAS ARE VERY NARROW. WHEN YOU COME OFF THE ELEVATORS AND IT LIKE GETTING OFF A TRAIN IN NYC DURING RUSH HOUR. SHIP ALWAYS SEEMED CROWDED. MANY CONGESTED AREAS. PEOPLE IN WHEELCHAIRS HAD TROUBLE GETTING AROUND.
MOST LIKELY WE WILL NOT CRUISE PRINCESS AGAIN, AND WILL CRUISE WITH RCCL IN THE FALL.
