We where in Crown Princess the week of 17th december 2011. We where with two friends an for them it was a first time with Princess but they sail many time with other company an they said it is the first an the last...We said it is not like the other cruise we took with the same compagny... the embakation was disturb because the other cruise had novovirus on so the disinfects an the sanitising so we understand it is longer to embark but after that many things is not the same the same. Nevertheless it is with this company that we developed the taste to make cruise... We realized that it is not this cruise which could give taste to one to make another cruise for a new cruiser.
The cabins was good but if you choose more in front of the ship it could be noisy because training center is just in front so I heard from people who was in front they had a lot of noise because the trademills but not us it was de L253 if perfect near pool, lunch on the deck 15. But if you have the seasickness maybe it is a bet high because we had a big wave about aft of the week 7.5 to 12 feets...they made an announcement to secure dentures for those who have one... so we had waves...but is it not the fault of the company. For Seasickness choose lower level.
Excursion was ok but to get out of the boat ... what a mess... long line anywhere they would have advantage has to find another way of functioning as the one we we had set previously in Oasis of the seas. So disembark late every time to much time to go ashore. We where late to take the excursion they had to wait for passengers because the disembarkation. We too caribbean Princess an it was not the same, whe where waiting on a theater an the call us by tout an it was on time.
At buffet it is ok not more an we took breakfast at the Dinner place but it was not what we expect an not very good
It was good like the one we took before the Caribbean Princess.
Many pool it is very good but a lot of them where cloosed many time.
It is basic , nothing nothing nothing to compare to Royal the Oasis
The boat is nice, the cafÃ© international is perfect, pastry an coffee capuccinno woaw! buy a coffee card it worth the price for a people who love special coffee.
Right now ,we will take Allure of the seas this summer an to take Princess another time we dont say no but we will try other compagny before
