Ship Facts: Crown Princess Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Crown Princess Deck Plans
Most relaxing vacation ever
This was our 7th cruise and the 5th on Princess. We booked this cruise because I love Aruba, but we could only be gone 7 days and didn't want the cost of flying to San Juan.

This particular itinerary was just perfect for a vacation that included a lot of rest, which is what we were looking for. It only had 3 ports and that is including Princess Cays. We only had to get up early on two days. The one day was for Aruba because we had an early excursion and the day of disembarking. The time for the port of Curacao was late so we were able to sleep in that day also.

The ship was really rocking, but instead of getting seasick, I found it perfect for sleeping. We had an inside cabin and the dark room and the rocking made us sleep wonderfully.

The service this cruise was the best we've ever had. We've sometimes noticed that when you don't order drinks, waiters have a way of ignoring you. This was not true on this cruise. I bought the enhanced soda card and found the shakes and mock-tails delicious.

We played a lot of bingo and loved the comedians. We did not see a production show this time, but instead found our evenings either at MUTS or in the hot tub relaxing. Princess has the best pools and hot tubs. Pools are fresh water and most pools have a 7' end as well as a shallow end.

This is the first time we've seen lines for the anytime dining, but the lines moved quickly. Food was good, but we've noticed they no longer offer a few of the more exotic foods like in the past.

Disembarking was simple and quick.
