Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

We loved the ship. It was easy to find our way around. The ship decor was beautiful. All areas were kept very clean.

Pros: The ports

Cons: Entertainment on board

Recommends Crown Princess? Yes!

Food and Dining
Food was very good but can't really say anything was outstanding. We've been on other ships where the desserts in the buffet tasted old. I can say this was not the case on this ship. Desserts were very fresh. There was quite a variation in entree choices in the buffet. We ate in the dining room all but 2 nights. Food was very good.
Cabin / Stateroom
Our Balcony Cabin had plenty of storage room for clothes. The cabin steward kept it very clean.
Service and Staff
Staff was very friendly and helpful when we did need direction or trying to find the restrooms.
The comedy shows were very good. I didn't particularly care for the Production shows however others that I spoke with thoroughly enjoyed them.
Ship Quality
Large ship but we didn't have any problems finding our way around. Public areas were very clean. Ship decor was tasteful as well as beautiful
Invergordon (Inverness & Loch Ness), Scotland
Cawdon Castle and Battlefield Cullendon are a must see. Cawdon Castle is outstanding and the gardens are beyond beautiful.
Cobh (Cork), Ireland
We loved Cork. The town of Cobh was lovely. Beautiful Cathedral right in town.
Don't Miss: Blarney Castle was a don't miss. You have to kiss the Blarney stone! Be sure and purchase your Irish linens here.
Greenock (Glasgow), Scotland
Tour of Castle Stirling and coach ride through the Scottish Lowlands. Wonderful tour. Stirling was a wonderful town.
South Queensferry (Edinburgh), Scotland
Edinburgh Castle is a must see. Another beautiful Scottish city. Wonderful cashmere scarves as well as Clan items.
St. Peter Port, Guernsey, Channel Islands
Cornet Castle was very interesting. It was a short walk from the pier through town (you really didn't need to purchase the tour excursion from the ship).
Liverpool, England
We did not get a chance to actually see Liverpool. We chose the excursion to Wales to see the town of Conwy and Conwy Castle.
Dublin, Ireland
Dublin Castle was wonderful. St. Patrick's Cathedral beautful. You could board the bus at the port and were dropped off in downtown Dublin.
Don't Miss: Trinity College and Book of Kells
Belfast, Northern Ireland
We really enjoyed Belfast. Beautiful city which surprised us. There was a market festival going on in downtown which was quite fun.
Don't Miss: City Hall
Le Havre (Paris), France
Palace of Versallies. Can't describe how beautiful this palace is and how terrific the guide was.
