Nice Cruise

Sail Date: November 12, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Just coming out of drydock, disappointed the whirlpools were not working on the sun decks. The spa pool wave spouting oil on us the second night out and had to be closed down to clean for two days. Then it did not work at all.

Pros: Meeting nice people, nice crew,

Cons: food was average

Recommends Crown Princess? Yes!

Food and Dining
Food was average quality.
They need to update how they serve anytime diners, took us sometimes two hours to get out of the dining room, service was very slow.
No Creme Brulee or Escargo
Comediens in the Explorers Lounge were great.
No buffeee at the Caribbean night OR CHocolate night, both a disappointment since we took friends with us.
Ship Quality
Everything was clean
Cabin / Stateroom
We had a caribe balcony, loved the open closets (no doors).
Showers seemed smaller than average.
Service and Staff
Everyone was friendly and helpful. Need to give more English language classes as many employees working the pools did not understand english too well.
Willemstad, Curacao
Coming in at 1:00 PM, no shore excursions.
Don't Miss: Rum factory tasting.
Princess Cays (Cruise Line Private Island)
SHore was very rocky
Don't Miss: snorkeling was great around the rocks near the lookout point.
Oranjestad, Aruba
tour of the island, shopping, and beaches
Don't Miss: beaches
