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 ...
This cruise went very well. While there were some things on the ship that need to be refurbished, the total experience was wonderful. We enjoyed all the entertainment, Liam Stewart in Crooners was a terrific talent, as was the whole ...
Crown Princess - 13 May 2017
My wife and I have completed 25 previous voyages with Princess and six with P&O. Princess is one of our favourite cruise lines and their ability to cater for my wife’s gluten free diet has ...
We chose the cruise mainly for the destinations, which were just what we wanted; the timing was right and we thought we would try a bigger ship than previously. Also, very importantly, it sailed from Southampton.
We were upgraded, ...
I read a review about Princess written by an Elite cruiser, I have to say that I agree with what she said so here goes.
Crown Princess is a lovely ship, but there is a lot of wear and tear that needs addressing.
The staff ...
Our first impressions were positive but the food in the dining room was a big disappointment.
Embarkation went smoothly and the cabin was spacious and had a good sized balcony. The balcony was overlooked from above but gained better ...
The good---dining room food, the pastry chef( superb---best of any of our 30 plus cruises), the excursions and reception.
The bad---the ship needs to be refurbished and won't be until April 2018. Lots of empty wasted space outside and ...
Still a Princess fan at heart and there was much to enjoy on this cruise but with certain notable exceptions ,I feel that the overall experience was not quite as good as in the past.
International cafe was our favoured venue ...
This was our first cruise with Princess having completed 18 other cruises with P&O, Celebrity, Cunard, Royal Caribbean and MSC. We had been somewhat seduced by the hype, the advertising and former passengers feedback plus the fact that ...
Our fourth time on the Crown,this time we did the 7 day cruise to La Coruna.
It lived up to our expectactions.We had the opposite experience to the 1 star transatlantic review.
We found the ship to be very clean, no bad smells and ...
Delayed at Southamton although not princess's fault ship was late getting into Southamton due to weather in the bay of Biscay which can be very fickle. We checked in and we're informed that as ship was late getting in boarding would be ...
For the price Princess charged for this cruise, we found it to be value for money, so if your cutting prices, something has to give! No the food isnt perfect all the time, but you can always ask for somthing else, lets face it no one ...
We booked this through Virgin holidays as we had to use a credit note. As it wasn't a Virgin cruise they went interested in helping. We contacted Princess cruises to explain that it was our Anniversary and the wife had special dietary ...
