Problems w/Blarney Castle. As advertised long lines may be expected but line was over 2.5 hrs to get to castle entrance. Therefore, we did not get to see castle. False advertising.

Review summary

We will NOT go on a Crown Princess again. What a shame. Problems w/Blarney Castle. As advertised long lines may be expected but line was over 2.5 hrs to get to castle entrance. Therefore, we did not get to see castle. False advertising. We should be refunded our excursion fee.

The hallways always had carts & we could not pass the carts unless I had help from someone to close the walker & carry it thru sideways. I could not do this myself. It was rare to have someone pass by to help. Very disappointed with hallways width.

Cruise had problem with new TV software installed after we arrived. The lights beside the TV blinked 24/7 including all the night. The ship could not stop this. So Disappointing!!!

Irish people are proud of their houses. Loved seeing the villages. But not seeing the Blarney Castle was a disappointment & a wasted trip.

Dublin, Ireland

Disembarkation

We were sent too late from the wheelchair area to get on the bus to the airport. The bus was full & almost missed our ride. This was unnecessary & stressful.
