Review SummaryAlthough the ship is beautiful and state of the art there were alot of "little things" that bothered me about the ship compared to what I experienced with Carnival: the only drinks included are water, coffee, hot tea and unsweetened iced-tea ( & OJ and cranberry for breakfast only) everything else you had to pay for; ice cream was not included ($3.75 i believe, but free 24/7 on Carnival); NO CLOCK in the room! it drove me crazy!; the ship docks far away (st. thomas, and bermuda) from "downtown" areas where other ships docked forcing you to pay ridiculous open air taxi fees or squeeze onto ferries with the rest of the 3000 passengers; lack of specific announcements (ie no signs letting you know before hand that the 24 hr internet cafe will close at a certain point resulting in you wasting your prepaid money, not clearly stating when the last call for baggage pickup is, not informing all passengers that even though the ferries run every 1/2 hr in bermuda if you dont make the 3:30 you won't make it back by the 4:30 all-aboard)
Ports Of Call
Pros: HUGE Beautiful ship, very friendly staff, everything from cyber golf to great shows to computer, wine tasting and dance classes, great excusrsion opportunities
Cons: Small room (mini-suite), ship docks far away from main attractions (have to rely on taxis and ferries), skimps on "all-inclusives"
Recommends Crown Princess? No.
