This was our first time taking a cruise and had a great time meeting folks from around the country and other countries. The expierence was so well done I will be booking my next vacation to cruise rather than fly to a location.
Was a bit worried as had read several negative reviews about the Crown Princess with people saying it needed refurb etc. I saw nothing of the sort. The ship was perfect and a great experience. I can't believe that people scared me so much!!
Great cruise with lots of entertainment options. Did not use the pool nor specialty restaurants. Ate at the buffet or ordered room service. Both were delicious with lots of options. Enjoyed the shows at night especially the Whitey Huston tribute performed by Ashlie Amber. Grand Turk was beautiful and weather was gorgeous. Decided to stay on the ship and did not visit the Amber Cove port in DR. Overall, it was a relaxing five days. Would sail Princess Cruise again.
VERY concerned about a problem with returning from excursions. After everyone is finished shopping, eating, etc we all come back to the ship and are supposed to sanitize our hands, naturally, after touching who knows what in an island country. We noticed many, many people ignoring the sanitizer, and again no crew member seems to care. 2 days before our return a cruise ship had to return before of illness. Why don't you care?? Would LOVE to have a response.
We were very happy to choosed Crown Princess Cruise for our Vacation. It was an extraordinary experience, great crew services, very professional, food, pool, bar, Restaurant and Entertainment were excellent. The ship was adult, senior mostly creating a paceful and relaxing environment.
The travel service Dream Vacations arranged was great. The ships seemed worn in many areas& it needs repairs & updated. The wait staff in the dining room needs work. But, Cruise Chics Rocked!! Loved being with my Sisters!!
Was not a great experience. Princess was not what I thought it was, I thought it was suppose to be upscale.. nothing upscale about it. The food was not good and not much entertainment. The customer service staff prior going on cruise from princess was horrible
Our cruise vacation in Canada and New England was wonderful. The cruise ship Crown Princess is beautiful and spacious. Our room steward, dinning room waiters and all other employees we had contact with on the ship were very friendly and helpful. The food at the various restaurants and the Horizon buffet court were delicious and the services everywhere were excellent. We enjoyed all the excursions at all ports of call (Quebec City, Saguenay, Charlottetown, Sydney, Halifax, Bar Harbor and
Boston) we booked with Princess. The tour guides were very professional friendly and knowledgeable of the history of the areas, and also full of humor.
Sadly, Crown Princess has seen it's time come and go.. It is old, out dated and Princess has cut way too many corners... Adding more specialty restaurants would help, but really concentrating on food quality would go a long way to helping this ship and most likely the entire cruise line.. Paying almost $6000 for a 10 day cruise is a lot of money for a small outdated balcony cabin that has lumpy, sagging old mattresses and a small old tv... Drydock is needed immediately to fix the physical features of the ship, new crew members are needed to fix the terrible, unconcerned attitude of most of the staff and new chefs are needed to create better menus and ensure better tasting food is a reality. The cruise also needs to do a better job of ordering supplies- they ran out of over 20 difficult wine bottle options, and many food items were unavailable as well by the last day of the cruise..
