"Embarked on MV Crown Princess on a 27-day cruise from Los Angeles to Montevideo, I had been driven away from poolside by the thumping music. So I found a deck chair in a quiet region, stretched out happily, and..."Read More

We chose this cruise purely because of it's destinations and the fact that they had a kids club as we were travelling with our 12 year old son. Embarkation was a total nightmare - preference was given to those that are elite/gold status which 80% of the passengers appeared to be so the entire boarding lounge was literally long long queues. We had a Mini Suite deck 9 - room was ideal for the ...

Crown Princess 31- Day South America (December 4th, 2016 – January 4, 2017) Total disclosure mandates that I reveal the following about my husband and myself: We do not like big ships, and he (especially) loathes crowds. The Crown Princess is a big ship and it was full to capacity on both legs of the cruise (Los Angeles to Valparaiso and Valparaiso to Rio de Janeiro). The relatively low ...

We have cruised with Princess enough times to get to Elite status which indicates we have been very pleased with the cruise line. This one gave us the opportunity to see several cities and country for the first time. We were blessed with good weather aside from a few windy days. We had traditional dinning times and very impressed with the 2 fellows looking after us, Oliver and Jeffery. The ...

We chose this cruise for the itinerary. This was our 5th Princess cruise. We have thoroughly enjoyed our previous cruises and were looking forward to another great Princess cruise. Sadly, we were let down. The Crown Princess is in desperate need of refurbishment. There are permanent stains on the carpets, our stateroom badly creaked whenever we were in high swells (which was frequent), the ...

We chose this particular cruise because my companion has wanted to take it since we met a couple several years ago who had done the sailing and raved about it and the adventure it was. They had gone on Holland America. This year we had the time to attempt this long of a vacation and went looking for the same/similar opportunity. The cruise we found was with Princess. We had read good ...

I have always sailed Princess, am elite status now after about 18 cruises. I do this for the same reason people stick to a particular airline. I have in the past been on Carnival, Holland America, and NCL. It was almost as if this cruise was doomed from the beginning. I arrived beforehand at the cruise hotel and then had me listed as an employee rooming with several other employees. I ...

Embarked on MV Crown Princess on a 27-day cruise from Los Angeles to Montevideo, I had been driven away from poolside by the thumping music. So I found a deck chair in a quiet region, stretched out happily, and opened my book. Presently, a cruise line goombah appeared and demanded $40 to use the chair for the day. “You’re kidding.” “This is a quiet area.” “I know. That’s why I sat ...

We flew to LA and spent a few days touring before the cruise. When Sunday arrived we returned to LAX for our transfer to the Crown. Much to our surprise, instead of having to wait in long lines at the terminal we were taken to the Sheraton Hotel where we filled out our paperwork while enjoying coffee and rolls. The large group was subdivided into groups the size of bus capacity and one-by-one our ...

We looked forward to this cruise for over 2 years after having to cancel the same cruise in 2015 3 days before travel due to an unforseen hospital admittance. Our embarkation at LA and the first couple of days were good, but then it went downhill. The water was switched off to our cabin overnight without any warning and when we woke up our toilet was full to the top. It was fixed after ringing ...

Let me start by saying, my husband and I are not frequent ocean cruisers. We did a lot of ocean cruising when we were younger. In the last few years, we travelled with Norwegian and Celebrity and were very pleased with those voyages. We took a 31 day cruise of South America, December 4, 2016 to January 4, 2017. We booked a mini suite, mid ship D 701. Unfortunately, the Crown Princess has serious ...
