2nd time on the Crown and we can't fault it, everything is perfect. It is a little expensive for us Brits. The trips were a letdown, they weren't cheap and the seemed quite rushed. The best one was at Puerto Vallarta with lots of things to ... Read more

Went on the 10-day cruise from Los Angeles to the Mexican Riviera on the Crown Princess. First, I read all of the reviews. Ranged from GREAT to POOR. As usual, the reality is somewhere in between. Embarkation: TERRIBLE ! Princess is ... Read more

We had a great time on the Crown for the Mexican Riviera cruise. Embarkation was terrible though and not a great start to our vacation. Supposedly the computers went down (does that not seem the excuse used when things are slow) on one ... Read more

As background this was our 48th cruise, and we have previously sailed on all the major lines including Princess. I would consider us a little more critical of our cruise because we have had some wonderful experiences to compare to. ... Read more

Embarkation: Surprisingly exhausting. We all got bumped from the new terminal (27?) because a Salesforce conference had docked a ship there to serve conference attendees. So we embarked at some old barn-like structure that had me ... Read more

There were 5 in our party (yes, one was a single and had to pay double) and we're in our 60s. We have cruised on NCL, RCCL, and CCL before. For cleanliness, style, service, and FOOD this was by far the best cruise we have ever taken. ... Read more

Our Alaska cruise was perfect, other than a bit of sickness heading to Juneau due to choppy seas. The weather was beautiful and the scenery spectacular. We received great customer service from the Excursion Manager and others during the ... Read more

The one thing that comes to mind on this ship was "long lines". This was my first cruise on a ship of 3,000 + passengers and I expected there to be more people. I have been on 9 other cruises and never has the buffet line ... Read more

The ship overall was very nice, some what dated but clean and very large. I did not even feel like I was on a ship. I took a lot of medication just in case because I can get car sick but did not need it one time. The service was awesome, ... Read more

Wow! As first time cruisers we did not know if we would enjoy cruising (we love the freedom to roam), but wanted to see Alaska by ship. I must say this was one of the few vacations where the experience exceeded our expectations. ... Read more
