Review Summary

This was a mother-daughter cruise and because of that it was magical! I have been on other Princess cruises and although the Crown Princess was nice, the service was lacking. I had not been so nickled and dimed before. Everything seemed to have an extra charge. My bill was enormous - it would be difficult not to spend at least $500 extra on the cruise ship. The food was fine, especially Sabitinis - you have to go to this restaurant if you want the best meal of your life. We had a great time despite the few negatives. I will try Royal Caribbean next.

We had fun walking around and visiting the shops. I would have liked to do a tour - that would be beautiful

Philipsburg, St. Maarten

I don't know why everyone loves this island. We went to the most popular beach and was shocked - I mean shocked by the price of lunch - 3 small pan pizzas and a salad, one beer and water - $93.00!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Watch out prices are in Euros
Don't Miss: Don't bother

Grand Turk Island

5 out of 5
What a nice place. The water is tremendous. Jimmy Buffet Margaritaville was a blast. Swiming and lying in the sun.
Don't Miss: Margaritiville

Princess Cays (Cruise Line Private Island)

5 out of 5
Best port - relaxing, would like to have gone there two days. Although the barbecue was pretty bad - not enough service to get all people through lunch. The need to have more food stations
Don't Miss: relaxation

Pros: Variety of things to do

Cons: Service

Recommends Crown Princess? Yes!
