7 day cruise to Norway from Southampton, getting on and off the ship was very good, I also enjoyed the evening shows Magic to Do, the Disco Show, the variety show, Jo Little the comedian, and others too, all most entertaining! My cabin ...
Being new to cruising, I went with Princess last year so decided to go with them again because we had such a great time last year.
Another lovely ship, great destination and great all round service. We did miss one port of call, very ...
Wanted to experience the Fjords so chose this cruise as they were offering balcony cabins at the same price as outside and 3rd person for half price.
Getting on board was fine, a little crushed in the waiting area. Cabin was ready and ...
Had circled this cruise as a possibility when I rcvd the Princess Cruise atlas. Inquired and told all verandas were sold out and thought price was high. Then in a last minute special e-mail I get from Princess price was lowered and then 1 ...
choose this ship, had the places I wanted to go to besides being a great ship. housekeeping was excellent, two shows were fantastic on this trip, was B/B for us 28 days. Summer Solstice in Norway was great to see & feel. The ship is ...
We wanted to hit the Norwegian Fjords, and to experience the "northern" lights... didn't factor in the sun never setting for 4 days we were north of the Arctic Circle so no northern lights...
Cruise was great, food was ...
The Crown is an older ship and needs work! During 14 day cruise the spa pool was closed at least 4 times for 'maintenance' including our 1 sunny at sea day. Deck hands and other crew were all giving conflicting information as to what ...
Our second cruise to Norway but this was slightly longer than previously and visited ports we hadn't seen before.
Embarkation was quick and efficient and disembarkation was a breeze. Never on any previous cruise have I experienced ...
Our first ever cruise with Princess - unfortunately it will probably be the last as a result of our overall impression of this ship and the company. Prior to departure, rumours were circulating on social media that the Crown Princess had ...
Over the past few years we have been cruising our way up the Norwegian coast with various cruise lines, the itinerary deciding which cruise to take. However, this year's preferred cruise was fully booked so the next option was Crown ...
My wife wanted to go to the North Cape.
North Cape was excellent as were Trondheim , Flaam and Skoldjen . Less impressed with Tromso (closed on Sundays it seems ) and a random island stop by tender. Bergen visit was extremely curtailed ...
A very enjoyable cruise with some fantastic ports. We were lucky to have great weather for the most part.
Having read some really bad reviews, we were pleasantly surprised to find the ship in such good order and well maintained. The ...
The value of this cruise was very good with OBC.
Food was not as good as other cruises. It was very congested in the buffet. They did hold people back from entering the buffet line which helped some.
The shore excursion in Gdansk ...
Wanted to revisit the Baltics, this cruise came through the door in a flyer, it was a good price.
We have cruised with various companies, P&O the most. Our loyalty points move to Princess so we found ourselves on their Elite tier.
This is our 3rd cruise with princess and was not up to the standard we are used to, ship is very tired looking and tatty in places. Our adapted Cabin had quite a few niggles with it, patio door windows were absolutely filthy, the chest of ...
We chose this cruise for its itenerary, which was perfect for us. We spent three days in London before embarking at Southampton; London was wonderful, and the food was excellent wherever we went. We used Smith's for Airports to travel from ...
We chose this cruise because of the Itinerary to the Baltics and because Crown Princess was our first cruise ship just after her Launch in 2006. We sailed in Jan 2007.
Sadly the Crown has slipped badly. The ship is in desperate need ...
Wanted to go to the Baltic-- first the good -The orchestra ,players and singers were first class = MAINLY evening entertainment-
Free wi-fi means only access to the internet -- then Exhorbitant price per minute to use it.
We booked this particular cruise to celebrate our silver wedding anniversary. Admittedly the itinerary appealed more than the ship itself.
It was the first time we sailed from Southampton - previously choosing fly-cruises. ...
Had a great cruise, outstanding entertainment, the usual Princess standard,, embarkation and disembarking was extremely smooth with no hold ups or problems.
Weather was very kind, highlights for us was Bruges, Tallin and St ...
My husband and I, who are in our early to mid 30's, took the Princess Cruise on Crown Princess through the Baltic from Southampton, England to what were supposed to be ports at Belgium, Copenhagen, Sweden and Norway this past May/June ...
Cruise on Crown Princess 27th May, 2017 to 3rd June, 2017
We have sailed with Princess some years ago and decided to give them another go.
We arrived at Southampton terminal around 1130am and because we were Elite we were checked in ...
Yes, there are parts of this cruise and this ship which weren't perhaps as good as other Princess cruises we had been on, but I have to disagree with some of the petty complaints that some of the other cruisers have put in the past (and ...
Went with Princess to Hawaii 5 years ago and have been on Celebrity and Holland and America.
I actually win this cruise, so was looking forward to it as it was going to places I wouldn't have chosen if I was booking a cruise.
It got ...
Where do I start?
The cabin safe didn't work on arrival so we had to carry passports etc around with us.
Cabin Lights kept flashing on and off like a disco , not fixed until the next day.
Air con poor. Reported all these faults ...
