Ship: Crown Princess

Traveled As: Couple

This was our 1st cruise so didn't know what to expect. It was a great experience, but could have been better with more up front planning of the itinerary on our part.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Great food. The cruise had an open buffet area during most of the dy as well as a formal dining hall in the evenings. We actually enjoyed the buffet more than the dining hall. (good food, a little slow).

Lots of good evening entertainment (shows, comedy, etc). During the day there were places to watch movies out on the main deck (on a giant screen, really cool) as wel as mini-golf, a small jogging track, workout room, etc.

Cabin / Stateroom

Simple yet it fit the need quite well. Who goes on a cruise to stay in the room anyway? What was nice was Princess had a TV channel that offered a view of the outside of the ship (useful since we had no windows).

Take the Soufrie Island delights tour. Its long, but you get to see a lot (and eat a good west indian meal)!

St. Thomas has a nice beach, but was a little too 'american' for my taste.

I was a little bummed as the bigest attraction (my family is from here and I spent summers there as a kid) was closed. When it reopens I would reccomend Harisson's Cave.
Don't Miss: Harisson's Cave.

Pros: beautiful ship, movies under the stars

Cons: Full schedule (a port each day) didn't offer time to enjoy being at sea.

Recommends Crown Princess? Yes!
