Rushed through dry dock too quickly.

We just returned from a 25 day transatlantic cruise. We chose this cruise because of the ports. The embarkation was the worst I've ever experienced in 40 some cruises. It was disorganised with us boarding 2 1/2 ...

Poor communication from Captain/Officers

Captain should move to a freighter as he is not comfortable in social situations or aware of importance of communication with crew never mind passengers. He was basically invisible, only saw him once at buffet when ...

Nothing was offensive, nothing stood out

Embarkation and disembarcation were the best we have experienced - we arrived early in Rome and expected to wait an hour for our time slot - but walked right on - 15-20 minutes - tops. Food was not so good - ...

Not up to the old Princess standards for sure

This cruise was across the Atlantic, relaxing, great food and entertainment and a top contender for mid-grade cruise ships. First the good. Yes, the food and service was excellent most of the time and they ...

ABC's

I have never been to the ABC islands before so this itinerary appealed to me. The Crown was heading to dry dock after my cruise and it's apparent that it is needed! Everything seemed dated. The Horizon Court food ...

Crown was not up to par

We were on the Crown a little over a year ago for 28 days to the South Pacific and loved the ship. So we decided to go again on the Crown. Granted it was only a 5 day cruise. We assumed things would be different ...

We chose this cruise based on traveling with friends who had Princess "status" and the itinerary of the cruise. This was our first Princess cruise, although we had cruised on other cruise lines. There were a few ...

Disappointment for wheelchair accessibility

Choose this ship because it was ADA compliant and had no tender ports. In reality the ship has limited wheelchair access. The cabin was good. It was difficult getting around the ship because there were limited ...
