First cruise

Sail Date: January 11, 2009

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Balcony

I've never cruised before so I can't compare to another ship. It was a beautiful ship, friendly staff, great service. There were four of us sharing a stateroom/suite and a cot was brought in for the 4th person. It was OK but a little crowded. We folded the cot up during the day. Glad we had the balcony.

Pros: the convenience of everything

Cons: promotions that in the end required money.

Recommends Crown Princess? Yes!

Cabin / Stateroom
Location was near the aft of the ship and close to the elevators although we did use stairs a lot.
Ship Quality
Food and Dining
The buffet had a food theme each day - very nice. Any time dining worked well.
Service and Staff
Children's Programs
Grand Turk Island
Liked the fact that we didn't have to spend money on taxifare. Rocky in the water - beach OK
Princess Cays (Cruise Line Private Island)
not a lot to do unless you paid money for excusions
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
didn't care that much for St. Maarten; not a lot of time to explore after taking the taxi to Orient Beach - too crowded there. Downtown was OK
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
Very nice island and would liked to have seen more but didn't have time. We we to Megan's Bay - beautiful beach.
