This cruise was OK.

Sail Date: May 30, 2008

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The ship was clean. The food was just OK. The attendants seemed unhappy and pressured. The cabins were decent. The itinerary was great. We enjoyed the stops that were selected for this cruise. It was hard to get info about the ports (i.e. transportation into town) if a ship's excursion was not used. We had a serious medical emergency half way through the trip. We do commend the port agents that Princess used. The hospital used in St. Petersburg was excellent. Overall, I guess I would tell people to consider this cruise, but check the amenities of other cruise lines too. This was not a great cruise, just an OK cruise. This was not as nice as another cruise we took last year with a different cruise line.

Pros: Princess has take the time to retain great port agents in case of an emergency.

Cons: The crew did not seem happy. The crew did not greet us nor did they smile very much. They seemed pressured and rushed.

Recommends Crown Princess? Yes!

Helsinki, Finland
Fun to see this port. We went out to the fortress in the harbor.
Copenhagen, Denmark
We liked Copenhagen.
St. Petersburg, Russian Federation
We did the ship's Grand Tour of Petersburg. I think this was a way to go, but we couldn't finsih because of a medical emergency. they would not let one of our party continue on the ship because of the medical problem, so our trip ended here.
Stockholm, Sweden
We loved this city. It was clean, organized and enjoyable. Be careful of the water taxi. It has its own schedule, not necessarily the one listed. We nearly missed our boat becausee it didn't stop at our pick up location.
Don't Miss: We loved "Skansen"
