This was our first cruise. We chose this because we were told it was a 'luxury" cruise. A 10 day cruise of Mediterranean: Greece, Italy, and a bit of France. First of all Staff: A large number of the staff does not speak English well, we were really shocked by that. And while most are very nice, the restaurant director was a surprisingly rude (his manager was VERY nice), and a couple dealers in ...

May daughter (30) and I (50) took this cruise to celebrate our milestone birthdays. This was my 20th Princess and probably my 40th cruise overall. It was my daughters 2nd Princess, and perhaps 10th cruise overall. Embarkation/Disembarkation and transport was well done, easy and quick. Cabin/Ship - This ship, like all Princess ships has a similar design in decks and cabins. We had a mini ...

We enjoyed the new beds/bedding added to the Crown Princess recently and benefitted from a spring refurbishment to the ship. The itinerary and port excursions were excellent (though the Mediterranean in July/August is incredibly warm). Our steward was wonderful. Spa services continue to be over-priced and there is no beverage package that actually makes sense but we enjoyed Princess once more on ...

I chose this cruise for the itinerary. It was a 7 night Mediterranean cruise beginning in Athens Greece ending in Barcelona, Spain. We were a group of 4 adults. However, we were overwhelmed by the outstanding service on the ship. We booked our first mini suite club class cabin and received some extra perks. We were able to embark without delay but it seemed like the regular lines were moving ...

First time cruiser chose Crown Princess for the itinerary - Athens to Barcelona July 7-14. First, the good: Our state room was fantastic. I spent a year reading reviews on cruise critic to lower my expectations, so I was just stunned by how beautiful and comfortable the state room was (Balcony, R-230), efficiently designed, with great lighting, visibility, and ventilation. It was love ...

We choose this cruise as I always wanted to go to Greece. We have sailed with Crystal many times. Initially we were ending up in Instanbul. They changed that as the cruise line deemed it not safe. The CEO of Crystal was on that cruise so that may have had something the do with it. It as changed Athens to Athens. It was a good cruise but cost us a lot to Change airfares etc to accommodate this. ...

The Sky Suites are absolutely gorgeous. The service provided from all suite staff was absolutely great; from the Butler to the attendants. The Suite restaurant Luminae was great but most for the personnel than for the food. The waitresses and the Somelier Nikolina went the extra mile to fulfill our requests. The nightly shows were as good as can be expected. Service in the Martini Bar is as ...

I chose this cruise because of the ports of call...It was suppose to start in Istanbul but becasue of the terrorist issues it was changed to Athens. We were very disappointed about the change since Istanbul was one of out main reasons we picked this cruise, although the added pot was Chania, Crete which was beautiful. The ship was beautiful and the cabins were big. The entertainment was ...

We chose this cruise for Regents reputation for luxury, fine cuisine and included excursions The luxury was lacking in many areas, poor dining service, indifferent desk staff, almost non existent daytime activities, and lack of decent live music were all areas they failed to live up to the hype. The newly refurbished public areas were elegant , as was our large deck 6 cabin, and embarkation ...

We chose this cruise because it was a Jet Set Sail package from Stansted. The transfer from the UK to the ship was first class and completely hassle free. At no point were we left to fend for ourselves, the meet and greet team at Athens were extremely helpful and their instructions were clear and easy to follow. The boarding process went without a hitch and it was great to finally sit on our ...
