Ship Facts: Crown Princess Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Crown Princess Deck Plans
Island hopping across the Atlantic
Wonderful ship just too many people when trying to get off! With over 3000 passengers, having to 'tender off' at a number of ports was a real problem.

Embarkation at Southampton was smooth, quick and impressive.

Disembarking at New York took almost 4 hours!! and we were then transported to JFK and left, 8 hours before flight back to England. US immigration service should ask Southampton how to do it!!

As always a very attentive crew and English Captain Nash had a wonderful sense of humour.

Food was typical Princess quality; entertainment was weak - too many individual 'world famous' but unknown acts. We missed big dance and song routines.

The destinations were excellent, pity about the weather which prevented 2nd visit to Greenland. Loved Lerwick in Shetlands and Halifax in Nova Scotia. Nuuk was our introduction to Greenalnd... very very cold and no tours offered. It was interesting to walk round the town but hard to believe it is a capital city.

We're glad to have done this cruise - it made us realise the benefits of choosing small ships. But the big ship on this ocassion ensured we survived the awful conditions you might expect from the North Atlantic.
