My family owns a travel agency and I've been travelling all my life. This was hands down THE worst vacation experience we have ever had. The cabins: We travelled as a group of 9 in 4 cabins. At least 3 of those cabins had big clumps ... Read more

Great (different itinerary) with a few extra days in Vancouver BC. Embarkation was crowed because 3 ships were in Vancouver the day we left. The ports were beautiful and there was plenty to do in each port exploring on your own. Vancouver, ... Read more

A good cruise; not a great cruise. Ship - This particular ship had really bad vibrations. I was in the Navy so I know the difference between motion due to the sea and the unusual. This was unusual. It was so bad we couldn't sit at the ... Read more

I always do a lot of research before any vacation. I found that Princess (Crown) goes through Glacier Bay - which many do not. It was our first cruise, and I had read many not-so-positive reviews about the wear and tear of the Crown, the ... Read more

We are long time Princess cruisers, with Platinum Captain's Circle status. This is going to sound like a negative review, and I don't mean for it to. If I were brand new to cruising, I would have had only glowing things to say about our ... Read more

Alaska was the destination of choice...so cruising seemed the best way to do it. We live near the port and found arrangements to be very easy. I had no idea we were going to love rising the way we do now. The cabin was much roomier ... Read more

This was our first time on the Crown Princess. Our destination was Alaska - the Inside Passage. We flew into Seattle on embarkation day and utilized the transfer from the airport to the ship. It was somewhat chaotic with all the buses ... Read more

I choose this particular cruise line based on reviews. My destination was to Alaska, regardless of which boat to take. However, after having sailed on Norwegian and Carnival, I opted to go with Princess based on the grander scale everyone ... Read more

Why did we take this cruise? 1. Window cabin was only about $40 more than the cheapest interior. 2. Wanted to see the glaciers, 3. Needed to burn some leave, and 4. Crown was a decent ship the last time we sailed on her. Boarding and ... Read more

We chose Princess after reading good reviews, and because they are known for their Alaska cruises. Unfortunately we won't be travelling with Princess again. We were very disappointed in the level of service. We have travelled with ... Read more

We thoroughly enjoyed our cruise - a little pricey but this was Alaska. Stayed in a mini suite allowing us more room with a full size tub. Our Steward [Ricky] was excellent and attentive. The food in the main dining room was excellent ... Read more

The cruise ships was fine but two things let it down, poor food and pushy sales tactics. The food in the buffet restaurants looked good and had a good variety of choice but was pretty tasteless. The breakfast toast and bagels were kept ... Read more

We choose this cruise at the last minute, well only 6 weeks prior to cruising. We were on the Crown Princess because there were 2 cabins, a balcony and an interior across the hall from each other which was a requirement since we were ... Read more

This was my "test drive" cruise to decide if I want to cruise back2back for the next 20 years. I cruised in the distant past, but not for 15 years or so. I was looking for a clean, classy, calm ship, and the Crown fit this ... Read more
