NY to Quebec and return (two tours): Crown Princess Cruise Review by BigAl75
Overall Member Rating
NY to Quebec and return (two tours)
Destination: Canada & New England
Embarkation: New York (Manhattan)
The food was generally poor, especially tough beef and pork and undercooked potatoes and carrots.
Service was by and large outstanding, from the cabin steward to the wait staff in all the dining areas on the 15th deck and the International Cafe on the 5th deck. I have generally found that the wait staff in the formal dining rooms are a bit impersonal but if you're ever on the Crown Princess and dine in the DaVinci dining room ask for a female waitress, Tatiana and her assistant Dennis. Personal, friendly, helpful and has probably the fastest knife in the dining room, when she separates the shells from the lobster and prawns.
Tours varied, Among the best were Bar More Harbour tour of Acadia National Park and lobster dinner, which was great. Also the tour of St Johns, NB with a tour guide "blue Bonnie". Among the worst was the tour meant to immerse us in Anne of Green Gables on PEI. Spent more time seeing the mussel farms then we did visiting the authors birthplace and homestead. Less
