Pros and Cons

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The Crown Princess is beautiful however compared to the same class of ship with Holland America or Royal Caribbean it seemed more difficult to find your way around. We were constantly going in the wrong direction. We were required to have our bags packed and outside the cabin at 6 pm on the last night of the cruise instead of the usual midnight requirement. Many things seemed to be scheduled for the convenience of the cruise line instead of the passengers. We were told by the 800 number before we left that we could book a New York tour on board for the day we returned. When we got onboard we were told Princess couldn't be bothered with a New York tour since they had to unload and load 3,000+ passengers. We had scheduled a late flight anticipating going on a NY tour and requested assistance with storing our luggage in NY until our flight left. After waiting 3 days for a response to our request, they refused to assist us.

Pros: Anytime Dining

Cons: Customer Service

Recommends Crown Princess? No.

Saint John, New Brunswick
The tour by Horse Drawn trolley was fun and informative. The boat tour to the Bay of Fundy was a bit of a waste. Not much to see if the tides are not just right.
Boston, Massachusetts
Go to Quincy Market for shopping and Cheers for eating.
Don't Miss: Old North Church and Harvard

The 30 mile loop through Acadia is a must. Absolutely beautiful! Shopping was fun.

Take the Tour of Newport Mansions. The drive along the water past the mansions was wonderful (sit on the right side of the bus for the best view).
Don't Miss: Mansions
Halifax, Nova Scotia
We did the tour of Peggy's Cove, Lunch at Murphy's on the Water, the Maritime Museum, the Citadel and the Public Gardens. Excellent tour. We highly recommend it. Wish we would have had more time to shop.
