Crown Princess

August 2014 - Crown Princess to Alaska - Gulf of Alaska

alaska cruise , August 2014,

I have used ROYAL CARIBBEAN< CARNIVAL AND Norwegian.   8 of us used Princess to go to Alaska, balcony room.  We saved for 5 years.  The ship had no out door covered areas, the pool was not covered, the dining room opened onto an outside deck and every time the door opened you froze.  We ate at the buffet with coats on.  We would stand some time 2 hours waiting to have dinner in the dining room.  We finally gave up and paid extra for optional dining in their restaurants.  We had some one with us that had diabetes and it was like "OH WELL". We choose Princess because their write up is, BEST ALASKA.    Definitely not.  We wrote to PRINCESS and have not heard from any one.  The girl that booked the trip said contact so an so and here is the number.  REALLY, is it not correct procedure when a customer has a complaint to contact the customer????  When we spoke to customer service desk , on the ship with our complaints, we were told this ship belongs in the Caribbean is not equipped for Alaska. Do not use Princess cruises in general, Rooms are very small, sheets were threadbare.  We WERE SUPPOSED TO HAVE TWO ROOMS WITH 4 BEDS.  We had rooms with three beds.  When I called the booking agent, she said, Oh it looked like 4.  I know that's what you requested.    CARNIVAL is a better cruise line at better rates.  Save your money book with some one else.   Margaret Cowden

Crown Princess

August 2014 - Crown Princess to Alaska - Gulf of Alaska

Alaska cruise aboard a Princess ship

I have cruised with Royal Caribbean and Carnival.  Princess is the bottom of the barrel with champagne prices. We cruised to Alaska on a ship with out a covered pool. The weather is cold and very rainy.  The buffet is off the uncovered pool area and we had to wear a coat to use the buffet.  The area was freezing as the doors off the buffet open right out to the uncovered deck area.  We booked open dining and sometimes it was a two hour wait.  I was told at one point I should change my time.  We paid for the restaurant up charge twice so we could at least have two enjoyable meals.  You usually miss the show at 8 and 10 because either you are standing in line, for dinner, or because it takes so long to be seated the shows are over, and you are still in the dining room.  Food service into the dining room is very slow.  We saved for 5 years to go to Alaska.  The scenery is just beautiful. But the ship ruined the whole experience.  This ship should be in the Caribbean not cold weather area.  Do your self a favor do not use Princess.  There were 6 of us on this cruise.  I wish there was trip insurance for a refund because I would definitely asked for a refund.The buffets were mobbed because of the long wait to be seated in the dining room.  I spoke to other people on the ship and most were equally disappointed.
