We chose this 14 day cruise from Fort Lauderdale to Southampton because I have never been to Europe and wasn't sure if my body could handle the flight over. This ship is NOT for the disabled. They have only 3 handicap seats in the auditorium. On the first day at the safety muster, the 3 handicap seats were taken so I asked the staff to bring in an extra seat but they wouldn't. They directed me to regular seats down several steps from the entrance level. Throughout the cruise there were numerous incidents like this where I needed help but was refused. On disembarkation day, finally a very nice person sought me out and said he is in charge of disability accommodations and he is sorry for how I was treated. I wish that had happened on the first day instead of the last day! Our oceanview cabin was a nice size but the bathroom was super small. Could not turn around in the shower stall. Dining room meals were good, sometimes excellent. Buffet was downright awful. My son got the coffee card for specialty coffee drinks and he liked that a lot. We all tried various cocktails and thought they were very good. Ports were Ponta Delgada (awesome), Lisbon (meh), Bilbao (my favorite), LeHavre/Paris (awesome), and Southampton. We stayed in Europe for 3 more weeks and had a wonderful time. Read Less

This was the "Cruise from Hell". My husband and one of our traveling companions were infected with the Norovirus on the ship. They sent medicine which they charges us for! The newspaper article I read said that the rooms were disinfected 3 times a day. NOT TRUE. Our room was "passed through" one time only. We heard many different stories about prior infected guests on many other Crown Princess Cruises. Most of the guests are elderly people and cannot handle the stress from sicknesses. We were given many different stories on what was really going on on board this cruise. No one was honest with us. We were also evacuated from our room because Life Flight had to remove a guest and were treated horribly. We were shuffled all over the ship. Told to go to the Princess Theater. We couldn't get in there because they were shootinga commercial. One gentleman was removed from his room while doing a breathing treatment and was left in the hall outside of the Princess Theater and was in need of medical help. Upon disembakation we were literally dumped in the terminal by the staff. We are both handicapped and were left in the galveston terminal by ourselves to retrieve our own luggage and get to a bus. Once we were off the ship no one cared. We have thoroughly enjoyed sailing with Princess in the past, but will have to seriously reconcider future cruises. We will NOT, however, EVER cruise on the Crown Princees again. Read Less
