Review Summary

Have been on several mega cruise ships before but this one was toooo big in terms of the amout of passengers (3200). It unfortunately felt crowded too often and the ship did not dock in the prime areas (West part of Bermuda, off on other side of St Thomas) necessitating a ride on expensive taxi's and ferries. Food was excellent but restaurants charge a fee! This absolutely should not be when you are paying top dollar for a cruise as was the case with charges for pizza and ice cream.

Pros: Variety of things to do

Cons: Too many people, too big for our taste, nuisance charges for things that should be free on a 1st class cruise line such as pizza and ice cream, cabins on small side, restaurants charge a fee

Recommends Crown Princess? Yes!
