Ship Facts: Crown Princess Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Crown Princess Deck Plans
Second cruise on Crown Princess
We were very pleased with our Crown Princess cruise 5 years ago. We travel with other couples every 5 years, and it was unanimous that we go on the Crown Princess again. This is a very nice ship, a larger category. Rooms are nice, plenty of storage and room to move around. Our Cabin was an obstructed ocean view, but we had great visibility.

Most impressive was there attention to detail in the dining room. Every aspect was above average, especially their willingness to accommodate my gluten free dietary needs. I had pre-registered my needs according to instructions at the Princess website. On day one, I checked with our waiter and the head waiter came to our table to introduce himself. Claudio was kind enough to come to our table every evening so that I could choose from the next day's menu what items I would like. This was also done for the days that the formal dining room (we were in the Da Vinci Dining Room) was open for lunch. I was even surprised with different desserts each night.

We loved that attention to detail that our cabin steward provided. No, there are no towel animals now, but he was very attentive.

Entertainment for the most part was exceptional. There was only one evening that was less than desirable.

Be forewarned that Princess does not do a very good job describing their excursions when it comes to transportation. There is no warning about how long you will be traveling, whether you'll be in an old van or a nice newer bus, etc. Our travel companions were very disappointed in this aspect of the shore excursions.

LOVE the Movies Under The Stars and the fact that they played great movies everyday. Very recent, most of the Oscar nominated movies. They are also shown in the Theater and in the Cabins, which is a nice alternative. Appreciated the padded cushions, blankets and popcorn each night!
