First Time on Princess Cruise line

Sail Date: April 28, 2007

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Suite

well your sure can't say, "if you been on one ship, you've been on them all" Princess Cruise line has a floor plan all of it's own. It's like a maze, everything is around a corner, it was fun stumpling among new areas.
Besides not liking the $10 charge per day, per person for tipping which can be quite expensive if there are husband, wife and 3 kids like my case. That's $400 which not typical of what I would tip the 4-5 primary people that directly deals with you on a daily basis. I'd rather have the contol of who I tip and how much.
I thought the food was good, lots of variety, the shows, live bands all exceeded my expectations.

Pros: On board activities (computer & cooking classes) Everyday I was discovering an area on the ship that I had not seen before

Cons: The daily charge of $10 a day per person for tips. I'd rather tip those personally that made my cruise experienece memorable. The way they do it you have no control over who gets what.

Recommends Crown Princess? Yes!

Be careful about buying the spices. Must be packed in your suitcase that your checking. I made a mistake and put them in my carryon and sure enough they took everything away from me at the check point. Talk about a sad momment

Beautiful Island to the eyes. it was great to see flat land after going to St. Thomas, & St. Kitts. I just appreciated the beauty of the Island, however it's not alot to do, it's more laid back not the busy hussle & bussle which is great for a change

I was very disappointed because this was my first time arriving to this Island on a Sunday. BIG MISTAKE! All the shops I have made my acquaintance with were closed. These shops owned by Chrisitan believers and were most assurely in Church on Sunday so I missed out on several things I had in mind on getting
Don't Miss: Side street stores have better prices than those on the main street
