First cruise and not impressed. Took cruise with 4 ports and they elected not to go to favorite, Bermuda at last minute. I understand this was the 3rd consecutive time they have passed this port up. Phoney excuses.
Casino was tired and arrogant staff.

Just not what I expected from my 1st and probably last cruise. Way over hyped. I call the Crown Princess the "jitters pirate ship" because all the staff seemed to have the jitters about the recent listing episode and the arrogance of the capt. continuely missing ports to make more money from bored and disappointed passengers. Try leaving St. Thomas, by passing Bermuda, and cruising back to NYC @ 12 knots for 3 days. Mind numbing and done soley for economic reasons. Period. The more time spent at sea will be spent at there bars and casinos, the more loot they pull in. This outfit is about looting. Period.

But they didn't miss Grand Turks which absolutely is meaningless to stop at except for the fact that they own it and the shops which are like walmart quality. The rest of the small island is a Prison and lighthouse, then shacks.

One simply doesen't get that warm and fuzzy feeling aboard this floating money grabber. Pirate feeling maybe.

Upon passing up Bermuda no compensation whatsoever offered and/or denied. What a sham/scam outfit this operation is.

Pros: Very good food and service at Sabatinis and Crown Grill. You'll pay extra but worth it.

Cons: Cigarette smoke drenched mini suite apun check in and little resolve, constant pressure to purchase drinks, poor entertaniment

Cabin / Stateroom
mini suite drenched in cigarette smoke, aweful experience. no change, and no remedy. Pretty, roomy but it stank to high heaven for the entire 9 long, long days!
If you like Bingo and DJ music or untalented amatuer musicians then welcomeaboard the Crown Princess!
Ship Quality
Too big to work effeciently. Exceptionally arrogant senior staff. Aloof.
Food and Dining
Buffet food like any high-school cafateria. Sometimes warm eggs, then cold. Always out of coffee.
Service and Staff
Generally the wait staff were terrific. Officers were cold, arrogant and unfriendly.
