Crown Princess

October 2017 - Crown Princess to Canada, New England, New York

Good cruise!

Disappointed not being able to visit Newport. Skipping Port seems to be common occurrences. On Golden in 2015, skipper Falkland Island and Amalia Glacier. On Emerald in 2017, skipped Port Chalmers and Akaroa. 2017 again on Crown, skipped Newport. Maybe good to have insurance policy for such unforeseen occurrences.

Emerald Princess

February 2017 - Emerald Princess to Australasia

Bad Choice

There are 3 key ports in this cruise that one aspire and look forward to visit. They are Port Chalmers, Akaroa and Tauranga. We have to skip 2 out of these 3 ports due to heavy fog. Other than Tauranga, nothing else is worth visiting. Worse of all, having to skip Port Chalmers and Akaroa resulted in us having to cruise from 15Feb evening to 20Feb with limited entertainment. The entire cruise was a disaster and investment for cruise is as good as pouring our money into the seas.

After this episode, I am putting my plan for the 104 days world on hold.

Emerald Princess

February 2017 - Emerald Princess to South Pacific - Australia

Bad Fine Dining throughout the 11 days cruise.Noy

The fine dining served on board were awful....mainly very salty. There is only a specialty dining to choose. This is unlike the Golden and Diamond that we cruise in 2015 South America and 2016 Japan cruises, there were varieties of specialty dining to choose.

the entire cruise was a disaster. We chose this cruise to visit Dunedin and Christchurch but due to heavy fog we had to skip these ports. To us, it is money spend for 10 percent of what we invested.

Although we did the 32 days South America and 17 days Japan cruises, the last experiences put us off our plan for the 104 days round the world cruises in Sea Princess.

Navigator of the Seas

April 2016 - Navigator of the Seas to Caribbean - Eastern

Golden Princess

February 2015 - Golden Princess to South America

Norwegian Spirit

May 2014 - Norwegian Spirit to Europe - Mediterranean

A fine cruise experience

Compare with my previous experience on the Norwegian Star last year, this cruise is more inferior. This is especially on the fine dining in either the Windows nor the Gardens. At the Baltic Cruise last year, we get to eat lobster but not the Mediterranean Cruise. The foods in Shogun are prepared by non Chinese or Japanese we learnt that the chef was a Filipino. My group of 18 complained right from the first dish that the food is salty and despite our request for the chef to cut back on salt, the foods remained Salty. Most food were rejected.

chyeo5152's Tips

Halifax, Nova Scotia - Only place worth visiting is the Citadel. Make sure to make it there before 12noon to witness the firing of the canon and changing of the Guards.
Boston, Massachusetts - Been here before. Nothing changes but definitely love the food in Quincy Market.
Bar Harbor, Maine - Good place to stroll in this town. Enjoyed the 1.5lb lobster for lunch in one of the restaurant.
New York, New York - One can see that it is located in an isolated area. Giving us the impression that we are not given a reputable berth for guest to embark.
Newport, Rhode Island - The port is closed. Waited for almost 3 to 4 hours then the skipper opted to skip this port to proceed to Boston.
Quebec City, Quebec - Beautiful city with many places to explore. Tea at the Chateau and walking tours is a must. Mongomery Falls is another must visit tourist spot.
Crown Princess Crown Princess - Have your dinner schedule fixed before you board the ship. Queueing can be frustrating.
Emerald Princess Emerald Princess - It would be unfair for me to pass a general statement that cruising on board Emerald Princess is a disaster but it is for our trip.
Norwegian Spirit Norwegian Spirit - The Reception areas and the General areas at deck 8 need better decoration. Norwegian Star though equally old and small does look better.
