Did not like this ship at all !!
"I really don't have many good things to say about this ship ..I did enjoy the ports .. it was nice to 'escape' from the ship. However,there were far too many sea days where we could not get out on deck due to the..."Read More

Disappointing Cruise

We've cruised 12 times and so we know what to expect on a cruise and we've been pleased in the past. We have never given a negative cruise review before this cruise. Our cruise on the Crown Princess to the Southern Caribbean was very disappointing. The trouble began as we pulled away from the port in Ft. Lauderdale and the Captain announced that one of the diesel generators was not working. ...

We have done well over a 100 cruises over the past 50 years, 62 of which have been Princess. As we are in Florida Nov/Dec we like to tag a cruise or two onto the end of our stay, returning home mid January. Having done a 20 day back to back on Crown for the past 2 years, and the dates fitting our plans this time, we booked this cruise again. An added bonus was reduced flights which fit in with our ...

Not Too Good on Crown Princess Christmas Cruise

Crown Princess is a beautiful ship, but not beautifully designed, it is all very bland in colors and finishes. One area looks like every other area. Nothing unique or memorable. Cold, cold, cold ship.... cold in your state room, cold in the restaurant, cold in the common areas of the ship. Even with the 2 room thermostat’s set on high heat, the room remained extremely cold. It is a miserable ...

We have been on 70+ cruises including about 30 on Princess. We the sister ship of the Caribbean Princess and they are NOT alike. Started with over an hour wait while they found a wheelchair for our EXPRESS boarding. The handler did not know how to handle a wheelchair safely and left us in the Lobby and went on his break. The cabin in the same area we had on the Caribbean Princess was very ...

This was our 6th Princess Cruise and 22nd overall. We opted for a Thanksgiving getaway cruise to the Caribbean out of Ft Lauderdale and this cruise fit our schedule. We opted for a full suite which was located at the stern (back) of the ship on the Starboard side (D-737). It was apparent on arrival that the Crown has not been refurbished in a very long time. The stateroom did not have ...

We did have 2 balcony cabins on deck 10 Caribe. Embarkation was swift and without a problem. The cabins, what to say about the cabins. The wear and tear is visible all over. The floors of the balconies were full of rust, paint spatters all over. Modern travelers carry with them a multitude of electric equipment, like phones and tablets. There is no way to charge them. There are 2 ...

The 10 day southern Caribbean cruise on the Crown Princess was mediocre at best. The food was sub-par and the staff was not friendly or courteous. The Crown Grill we paid extra for was a great meal but Sabitini’s main course was inedible and no one on staff or the maître d seemed to care. Definitely not worth the extra money. The fish and lobster were always either mushy or tough. The buffet ...

We went with a large group (100+) organized by a very reputable agency. The agency owner & key organizer traveled with us & did their best to address issues, but... The room was consistently over 75 Fahrenheit - even after two visits from engineering staff. Front desk said it wasn't possible to send a fan... In a truly bizarre twist, the cold water was over 100 Fahrenheit - I've never before ...

Repositioning Cruises are not for Everyone!

We will have to laugh about this cruise, but want to let others know that a repositioning cruise might not be for everyone. It was unfortunate that we didn't have a better idea about what to expect, and what we want is to let others know, and perhaps avoid disappointment for them. We left from Southampton on Sept. 22, and sailed to Brugge/Belgium, where we had a great shore excursion. Then on to ...
