GREAT ITINERARY, GREAT CRUISE

Great itinerary. This was our third Princess Cruise and we’ve realized we enjoy the Regal Princess and Royal Princess layout much better than that of the Crown. Staff onboard the Crown were amazing and so attentive. The ship is very clean. It’s a bit older and showing some signs of her age, but I’d like to stress that in no way is she lacking in service (other than buffet hot food line) and/or cleanliness. Relaxing cruise.

Great Service but Crazy Party Cruise, 2/27-3/2

If you’re looking for a non-stop party, search no more! Wall to wall people. Not our cup of tea, but still had an enjoyable cruise. Many adults were behaving badly, partying in cabin corridors after 1am. Loud talking, laughing and running around in the middle of the night. . Unsupervised children in bare feet riding the scenic elevators for kicks. Food and entertainment awesome. Wonderful staff.

Cruise tips

Nassau, Bahamas

Fun port. We had a day pass at local hotel and enjoyed our beach day very much.

Carnival Sunshine

Carnival Sunshine

Be sure to visit the Havana Bar, Cucina Del Capitano and JIJI Asian Kitchen, 9 Aft, behind the lido buffet.

Philipsburg, St. Maarten

Great private tour to the French side and back. Still some damage from hurricanes. Dutch side has recovered. French side not so much.

Royal Princess

Enjoy performances in the Piazza! Don’t miss Alfredo’s (complimentary).

Cozumel, Mexico

Much improved since our last visit in 2011. Easy car ride to beaches. Fun souvenir shopping.

Alfredo’s is GREAT. Made to order, hand tossed pizza. Great salads and minestrone. Wonderful service.

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas

We love the views from the mountain top. We’ve taken excursions here and this trip we rode the tram up the mountain and enjoyed the port views.

Willemstad, Curacao

Loved Curaçao and can’t wait to return. Lovely Dutch influences, fun port areas, beautiful water. We toured the liquor factory and the beach. Fun people, colorful buildings.

St. George's, Grenada

We had a wonderful tour in Grenada. Grand Etang Park, Annandale Falls and Dougalston Spice Estate. Highly recommend this tour. Loved the natural beauty of the island and the happy, friendly residents.

Crown Princess

There is no right or wrong way to cruise! Enjoy it as you wish. We had an amazingly relaxing experience. And, do try a specialty restaurant. The Crown Grill was delicious!
