My husband and I, who are in our early to mid 30's, took the Princess Cruise on Crown Princess through the Baltic from Southampton, England to what were supposed to be ports at Belgium, Copenhagen, Sweden and Norway this past May/June ...
Cruise on Crown Princess 27th May, 2017 to 3rd June, 2017
We have sailed with Princess some years ago and decided to give them another go.
We arrived at Southampton terminal around 1130am and because we were Elite we were checked in ...
Yes, there are parts of this cruise and this ship which weren't perhaps as good as other Princess cruises we had been on, but I have to disagree with some of the petty complaints that some of the other cruisers have put in the past (and ...
Went with Princess to Hawaii 5 years ago and have been on Celebrity and Holland and America.
I actually win this cruise, so was looking forward to it as it was going to places I wouldn't have chosen if I was booking a cruise.
It got ...
Where do I start?
The cabin safe didn't work on arrival so we had to carry passports etc around with us.
Cabin Lights kept flashing on and off like a disco , not fixed until the next day.
Air con poor. Reported all these faults ...
We chose the cruise mainly for the destinations, which were just what we wanted; the timing was right and we thought we would try a bigger ship than previously. Also, very importantly, it sailed from Southampton.
We were upgraded, ...
I read a review about Princess written by an Elite cruiser, I have to say that I agree with what she said so here goes.
Crown Princess is a lovely ship, but there is a lot of wear and tear that needs addressing.
The staff ...
Our first impressions were positive but the food in the dining room was a big disappointment.
Embarkation went smoothly and the cabin was spacious and had a good sized balcony. The balcony was overlooked from above but gained better ...
The good---dining room food, the pastry chef( superb---best of any of our 30 plus cruises), the excursions and reception.
The bad---the ship needs to be refurbished and won't be until April 2018. Lots of empty wasted space outside and ...
Still a Princess fan at heart and there was much to enjoy on this cruise but with certain notable exceptions ,I feel that the overall experience was not quite as good as in the past.
International cafe was our favoured venue ...
This was our first cruise with Princess having completed 18 other cruises with P&O, Celebrity, Cunard, Royal Caribbean and MSC. We had been somewhat seduced by the hype, the advertising and former passengers feedback plus the fact that ...
Our fourth time on the Crown,this time we did the 7 day cruise to La Coruna.
It lived up to our expectactions.We had the opposite experience to the 1 star transatlantic review.
We found the ship to be very clean, no bad smells and ...
Delayed at Southamton although not princess's fault ship was late getting into Southamton due to weather in the bay of Biscay which can be very fickle. We checked in and we're informed that as ship was late getting in boarding would be ...
For the price Princess charged for this cruise, we found it to be value for money, so if your cutting prices, something has to give! No the food isnt perfect all the time, but you can always ask for somthing else, lets face it no one ...
We booked this through Virgin holidays as we had to use a credit note. As it wasn't a Virgin cruise they went interested in helping. We contacted Princess cruises to explain that it was our Anniversary and the wife had special dietary ...
This was our first experience of Princess cruise ships and therefore the comments should be viewed in conjunction with those more familiar with the line. Boarding was ok but could have been handled a bit better. The staff in the terminal ...
My husband and I travelled on the Crown Princess around the Mediterranean, leaving Southampton on 22 April 2017. Cruise number 3711.
First, the good points…the ship was clean and the food was enjoyable.
The ports of call were ...
My husband had some medical treatment so thought it would be good for him to recouperate so booked on Black Friday. Unfortunately on11 April he had another operation and although able to travel was not well enough to get off the ship. ...
Had heard good reviews about princess cruises. We were booked on Club Class with everything that came with it, which I might add we did not receive, starting at the terminal at Southampton. Priority embarkation - we were one of that last ...
This was our first TA and we had chosen the Crown Princess because we had been on the Caribbean Princess at the end of 2016. That experience was only okay, but we got a good price for our accommodations based on a "Hugh" onboard ...
Enjoyed this cruise in spite of some times bad weather. Mother Nature will do what she will do, no matter how much you may wish otherwise.
We were expecting warmer weather than we got in the Mediterranean, but we soldiered on. The ...
Wanted to do a transatlantic and this was my opportunity. Food was great and the opportunity to meet new people was easy. The broad range of activities was nice. There's always something to do.
Liked the open seating concept during ...
Cabin C252- a SAFETY HAZARD for sure-folded up bunk beds on side walls, no room to get down the sides of the beds plus head hits bunk beds causing bruised head and shoulder and broken eye glasses. These bunk beds do not show in the room ...
We have always taken transatlantic cruise on other Princess ships and had great experiences. However on this cruise there were numerous issues.
-The first night in the dining room we were given 3 pats of butter at a table with four ...
