We sailed on the 3/23 sailing of the crown princess. Everything about the trip was problem free and enjoyable. We arrived at the port around 11am and walked right up to the suite line with no wait, then had a lounge to relax in with beverages. Within 20 minutes we were welcomed aboard, went right to our room and started enjoying our vacation.
The suite was beautiful, the steward was nice and helpful and we enjoyed all of the suite perks. The french toast at Sabatini breakfast is a winner, as well as the international cafe which we freuqented daily. The Crown grill was delicious, and the buffet and main dining rooms were generally pretty good. The burgers at the pool grill were delicious as was the pizza. We had a blast in all 3 ports and arranged our own tours to save on cost. The debarkation was unbelievable organized, from the luggage, waiting lounge, leaving the ship and the air port transfer were all smooth and the best we have ever experienced.
The Princess Pelicans was a great program, diverse activiities and our 6 year old thoroughly enjoyed it. There were 3 sessions a day and he attended most of them.
The fitness center was busier than we expected but still had nice ammenitites.
All in all we loved the trip and would cruise the crown again!
