Bucket List - Alaskan Cruise by simicdn

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Crown Princess / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

Took 7 day Alaskan Cruise departing from Seattle. Went with another couple - both celebrating anniversaries, nice to get recognition from the cruise line ( balloon decoration, welcome sign on our cabin door, and special chocolate dessert). Rough seas on the first day made it rough for some people but we were good. Enjoyed the catamaran/van excursion at the tiny town of Haines. Our guide was very personable. We did see bears eating salmon at the river head, even though far away. We set up our own personalized van tour with Ketchikan TourCab which turned out great. Loved the good food onboard, of course, ate too much!

A Break From Winter Weather by scoggink

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Crown Princess / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

Two days at sea were totally worth the trip getting down to the Eastern Caribbean ports of call. Each stop was unique and offered a variety of opportunities to see and do stuff. The Crown Princess is not a new ship but the updates have helped. She is a comfortable ship and the crew is fun, friendly and efficient. You are guaranteed to enjoy this voyage.

Amazing by BaileyzTravel

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Crown Princess / Destination: Caribbean - Western

The Crown Princess is a beauty. If your looking to relax then give her a sail. The staff from embark, service desk, excursion desk, future cruise and all the restaurants are very friendly. The crowd is a very mature crowd, but they come to have fun!!

South American Adventure by rayunderwood56

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Crown Princess / Destination: South America

My wife and I were first time cruisers and wanted this to e very special for my 60th last August 2016 - obviously mid-winter in the Antarctic isn't a good idea so chose Feb 2017 for this cruise.  The Crown Princess was amazing ship and we had a terrific time, however the cruise didn't get off to the best of starts as there w sa strike at Valparaiso Cruise Terminal so it was utter mayhem when queuing for check-in and embarkation with a 2.5 hour wait in a disorderly queue before being checked in and then another queue for getting the bus to the ship.  However, having living in Asia and queuing for over 1.5 hours a number of times at HK or Bangkok airports this really wasn't going o put a dampener on our first cruise. Once on board we went to the Piazza and that 3 storey (5th to 7th floor) Atrium was awesome and we knew then we were "cruising".

 

The Balcony Stateroom was spacious and much bigger than we expected with ample suitcase and clothes storage space. We had 3 formal nights and the food was good everywhere we went. Princess Theatre had two shows a night so it didn't matter when you ate, you need missed a show.

 

As this was a "Round the Horn" cruise the weather after Valparaiso was changeable to say the least and after the 3 day the pools had to be emptied as they were sloshing about all over the deck, although the Hot Tubs were left full and hot, which was great.

 

It was hard to believe that 3,000+ people were on this ship as it never felt crowded and  the staff were outstanding.

 

Saw amazing places and met really nice people whilst on Crown Princess and it has made us realise that "Cruising" is the way forward for trips to new countries/continents as it is a great way to "sample" cities and then if good to think about a longer visit, but if not so good you simply leave the place early, go back to the paradise and sanctuary of your ship and start eating and drinking all over again :-)

Thank you Crown Princess and Crew for an amazing 14 nights cruising roof South America.Happy

Fun and Friendly Cruise - Average Ship by SantaCruzers

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Crown Princess / Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean

Overall, our experience on the Crown Princess was very nice. The ship, though a bit dated and oddly configured, was clean, comfortable, and classic. The food and entertainment was excellent, and the service was friendly and efficient.

Crown Princess - Athens to Barcelona 16-23 June 2018 by BJLuck

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Crown Princess / Destination: Europe - Mediterranean

Our Itinerary isn't listed, hence the title. Despite booking 5 staterooms at the same time, our party was split between Decks 11 and 14. The food was generally good and we had advised all 9 members of our group that the dress code would be enforced so, no jeans, t-shirts, beachwear etc on non-formal nights where "smart casual" was the order of the day and jacket/tie or tux, with long dress or trouser suit for the ladies for the 2 formal evenings. However, the dress code was not enforced and women in capri pants and beach sandals, as well as men in jeans, t-shirts and trainers were admitted to the Michelangelo and Da Vinci dining rooms. When I complained, the answer, from the Maitre D' and the Cruise Director(Fernando) was "we can't enforce the dress code". If that's the case, don't bother with the dress code then. A rule is worthless unless it's enforced! The photo shows a man in soccer kit on a "smart casual" night. One couple in our group elected to dine in the Horizon Court restaurant because they were than annoyed with dress code contraventions. Entertainment was poor and the musical show by the crew was well choreographed but it was obvious they were amateurs who were trying their best. However, because of the era of the music, we did enjoy it. The cabin attendants were all satisfactory but rarely engaged in conversation. Hank was very helpful in meeting the needs of my 91 year-old mother. The bar staff were not attentive enough, aside from Cedric in the Fusion Bar who was very good.

BEST CRUISE SO FAR, PRINCESS HAD ME HELLO! by ColeenM

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Crown Princess / Destination: Caribbean - Western

The ship attracts an older crowd for the most part. This was my best cruise. The Princess staff are amazing. I did not use Princess or my excursions, I went through Costco. It was much cheaper. I was never bored. The Botticelli Dining Room did not have the best food. I wanted to try traditional dining and that was the dining room we were assigned. By the end of the cruise, the dining room was practically empty. Other diners, including us, chose to either switch dining or go to the specialty restaurants. Princess does advertise that is has " The Voice" as an entertainment option. I was very disappointed to find that it only had that on 7 day or more cruises. Also, the time for the Karaoke was only 45 minutes. It was not nearly enough time. I would have preferred an hour or more for this activity. Overall, I loved the Princess cruise. It is the staff that makes the cruise, hands down. I will be cruising on a Princess ship again!

Excellent vacation experience by Cruiser86107906

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Crown Princess / Destination: South America

The cruise was excellent in almost all respects.  Accommodations were comfortable, food very good, many entertainment options, and excellent service by all staff.  Only shortcoming was inefficient use of tenders and insufficient time at Ushiaia/Tierra del Fuego stop.

Worth the time investment by jhbarn

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Crown Princess / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

Anytime you put 3100 passengers of different cultures on a captive platform there will be "moments".  The crew and staff of the Crown Princess went to great efforts to lessen these moments.  The ship is big and nice with excellent food but that is expected.  Many places to dine and varied activities but you are still captive on a boat during the cruising time.  The towns and activities in Alaska were great and worth the effort.  If you are a shopaholic then you will be in nirvana.  The shore activities can keep you completely occupied if shopping is not your thing.  Costs involved with everything, but again this is expected.  The Tracy Arm fjord is a highlight for the cruise time.  The Crown Princess shows that it has experience with cruising as this was a first time experience for us but they smoothed the way with better than expected communications.  Take all the "extra" packages involved with moving luggage and yourselves to and from the boat.  This removes much of the traveling hassle as you don't have to handle your luggage as they do the work for a small price.  After listening to many war stories with passengers I definitely recommend getting to the boat (1) day early to remove the stress of getting to the boat on-time.  Slows the pace and removes the stress.  Prepare for long times for eating whether anytime of traditional as the quickest we had a meal was 75 minutes but most were 90 to 120 minutes.  This may be a designed process to keep you occupied and slow down the pace but to us it just took much longer then needed to have a meal.  Eat at the buffet and the only wait is the line to get started.  Also if eating at the buffet have someone secure a table while the others get food.  You can find yourself with a plate of food looking for a place to sit.  The food is excellent and you will need to take the stairs or put on the pounds.  Entertainment is pretty good to good and at times excellent.  There is no censoring on any of the movies so be prepared for this if you have children or like us don't like a constant barrage of F bombs in your movies.

All in all a worthwhile experience and not as much of a hassle or the herd mentality experience that we were expecting.  Prepare to be pampered by the crew of the Crown Princess as they have been trained and perform well.  Princess has it's own docks so you  never had to be tendered off the boat and they were usually ready to disembark about 30 minutes after port arrival.  Their process is well honed and this was just the second journey this year for the Alaskan cruise.  Have fun, we did.
