We will cruise again...with someone else

Sail Date: April 01, 2011

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

This was our first cruise and while we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves there were several little and not-so-little things that really upset me. This trip was to celebrate our 10th anniversary and when it came down to the day itself, it was a mess. The behind-the-scenes people didn't do a very good job of following through on the items I had pre-arranged (and pre-paid) prior to the cruise. It was all in the details.

However, the staff was amazing....from our stateroom steward to all of the dining room staff, we could not have asked for more!

Pros: Staff was great!

Cons: Poorly planned and managed

Recommends Crown Princess? Yes!

Food and Dining
The buffet food was just that...buffet food. Crown Grill was amazing!!!! Loved the pizza/ice cream bar and the ability to order pizza via room service ($3 delivery fee).
Ship Quality
Cabin / Stateroom
We got a mini-suite and loved it. Plenty of room for the two of us and we loved the balcony!
Service and Staff
Other than a MIA internet cafe manager to correct an issue with our internet minutes and one not-so-helpful staff member at the main desk, we couldn't have asked for more attentive or polite staff.
Our favorite thing to do was Movies Under the Stars! You were at the drive-in without the bugs and had the comfort of a chaise lounge!
