Ship Facts: Crown Princess Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Crown Princess Deck Plans
Norwegian Fjords cruise

We have only cruised once before, to Alaska on Sapphire Princess.

This cruise sailed from Southampton so no flying involved. Embarkation was made very easy and painless, and when we entered our state cabin we were suitably impressed with the size of the room and the balcony.

We went on a Princess excursion at the following ports of call; Bergen, Hellesylt, Olden, and Flaam. We did our own thing in Stavanger, the last port of call. We were glad we did as the Town is lovely and we enjoyed doing a bit of shopping and site seeing by ourselves.

All excursions were handled brilliantly, no hanging around and arranged like clockwork. The excursions were expensive but were very good value. Some included lunch and wherever this was the case the food was always excellent. we were very impressed. The Norwegian guides spoke excellent English and were very informative. It also helped that the weather was very good, we only had rain on one shore visit.

There was a presentation by a chap called John in the Princess Theatre prior to arriving at each port of call. John was very informative and gave useful tips on each place. One point; John asked me to email him regarding the video he used for his presentation, but I have lost his email address. I don't suppose anyone would be able to help with this?

Customer service on the ship was first rate and the food was lovely. We really cannot fault it. The ship was not quite as spick and span as the Sapphire Princess, but that had just had a re-fit so it's hardly fair to compare.

This was a great cruise and we thoroughly enjoyed it.
