Ship Facts: Crown Princess Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Crown Princess Deck Plans
Norovirus not contained

Norovirus appeared on ship after stops in Carib'n. Still not contained when ship reached Buenos Aires 10 days later. Passengers probably not co-operative with isolation/preventative procedures. I believe Crown Princess could have been more aggressive with preventative measures before the outbreak occurred. "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure", especially when there is no cure! Information about the disease and its' prevention should be everywhere printed/presented in all relevant languages, at the very least. It needs a priority second only to muster station drill.

Congratulations to the Chef Linzer ... the food was outstanding as was the service. Ship personnel were very very accommodating, personable and friendly.

Our outside accommodation with balcony was very good in all respects.

The entertainment/enrichment activities content was somewhat juvenile for the most part. The two day stop in Rio for Carnival made up for many deficiencies. Information/history/education about the countries and ports-of-call could have been much richer for my liking particularly as there were many at-sea-days.

For Bridge players the program was good.

The land tours were way overpriced for what was received. Many of the guides barely spoke English. There were of course a couple of excellent tour guides. I would not recommend purchasing the tours except the one to Christ the Redeemer in Rio. On Ilhabela, a very small town, the two sights were on a couple of blocks from the pier easily reached on foot. [Church and Museum]. The beach experience was minus 5.
