Disappointing

Sail Date: April 2011
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)

This was our fourth cruise with Princess. We have always been very pleased with our experiences. However, after this cruise we will not be booking on the Crown Princess for future cruises.

Embarkation was fast and easy as usually on board by 1:00 pm to start the trip. But once on the Lido deck we noticed the smell of sewage. I thought it was low tide at the port.

With a party of 8 we had no trouble getting in to anytime dining. Dinners were average. The best dinning experience was at the Crown grill.

Service was extremely slow sometimes waiting 15 minutes or more for drink once it was ordered at one of the lounges.

This is the first time we could not enjoy the pool area or movie by the starts due to the consistent sewage smell through out the whole trip. The cruise staff blamed it on the humidity. The only time we escaped the smell is when we were in port.

Disembarkation was easy and painless. Less
