Crown Princess 3/31/12
Destination: Southern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
We also decided to enjoy a couples hot stone massage in a private cabana. AMAZING!! I think we both walked out of the spa ready for a nap!! At almost $500 I still think I got my $$ worth.
If you are looking for a fun evening (and you are in our age range) don't hold your breath. We went to the piano bar, Wheelhouse bar (with live band), casino (we aren't big gamblers), hypnotist, Broadway inspired show, and MUTS. We had to search for something to do after dinner each evening. We weren't looking for a party, More but we wanted fresh entertainment each evening. Unfortunately, we were disappointed. This ship is geared towards the retirement age bracket.
The food was pretty good. We dined in the MDR, Wheelhouse bar (fish and chips), and buffets. We did not indulge in the premium restaurants. The staff was attentive and the food was as expected. The only exception I would give is on formal nights in the MDR. The food was restaurant quality on those evenings. I was impressed!
I would be remiss if I didn't recognize the room stewards. Ours was beyond fabulous! She was always there, but her presence was never intrusive. She had such attention to detail. She saw our bottle of wine and left a corkscrew and wine glasses. I know that may seem insignificant, but that was just one small example of her awareness and ability to anticipate our needs. She was a true highlight in our trip!
Bottom line...we enjoyed ourselves, it was vacation after all! We just will look to a different cruise line next time. Less
Cabin review: BAL242 Balcony
cabin L 242-Awesome location. So close to all the hustle and bustle of the Lido deck without the noise!! One major downside is that the door that leads to the port side cabins that is closest to this room is near the smoking section. We are non smokers and hate the smell. I would say this was a minor inconvenience.Read All Balcony (BA) Reviews >>
