Review summary

We purchased a 10 day cruise - six islands and four sea days but we ended up only stopping at three islands and being stuck on the ship for seven sea days - not the cruise we bought. This ship has constant motion unlike any other ship I have been on - even staff noted this ship has a lot more constant movement than other Princess ships. Woken up at 2:30 am by staff crashing away on drums below - given wrong info by cruise staff leading to our embarrassment - overall lousy cruise - wont sail on Princess ever again

Our cabin steward was great but many staff do not speak English and many can't answer questions

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
ship is constantly rocking

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
mini-suite was OK - very small compared to Holland America suites - only one housecoat - had to ask for more which we did get several days later - same with deck chairs

Ship tip

choose a ship with better stabilizers - the Crown Princess is constantly moving and rocking
