This was our 2nd cruise and our last one was on a bigger ship that had more things to do... We found ourselves getting bored on the ship... The best entertainment was a comedian Dave Heenan but the other entertainment I've seen better at the local high school... We really were unhappy with the drink situation as we are not big on acoholic drinks and if you wanted something to drink there was only 1 place to get drinks that was included in your cruise and it got crowded at times as it was in the corner of a restaurant and only 2 people could fit in to get a drink at a time... most of the times they were out of tea, cups, or ice... The other thing was that food was not really always available there were hours where no food was being served which we did not like and food selection when it was available was not that great... We tried to make reservations at one of the speciately places but they were all booked up for the entire cruise by the time we tried to book a reservation (I guess people booked the whole week the first day - which we thought was a little unfair due to the limited seating)... Personally I liked the concept of the freestyle cruising but would rather take a real cruise on a bigger ship than the crown...

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Food was just good in the sit down restaurant... poor in the buffet... and we didn't like that there were hours of the day were all restaurants where closed.

This is more of the business district we didn't really see much other than do a little shopping... the night we docked there was a street fair and the locals came out to see stuff on the street..

This was the best stop... we took a bus tour around the town and the driver was excellent giving us a true local perspective...

We didn't find much at all to do at the "dock yards" and found ourselves returning to the ship early just for something to do...

Pros: Departed from Philly so we didn't have to fly

Cons: Not enough to do on the ship to keep busy
