Crown Princess - Eastern Caribbean

Sail Date: July 2006
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: New York (Manhattan)
This was a very nice cruise. We flew into LaGuardia and were taken by bus to Red Hook. Everything went smoothly in that respect, but we had to wait in long lines to check in. We ended up leaving late because of a fuel problem. We missed our first port, but were each given a $200. shipboard credit. The captain and crew kept everyone informed about what was happening. We felt good about that as we have been on other cruises when something has happened and we were kept in the dark. The captain was very personable as was the rest of the crew.

We had traditional seating in the dining room for dinner which we enjoyed immensely. It was nice having the same wait staff every night who knew how to please us. The food served was very good. Lines at the buffet were confusing and seemed unorganized.

Entertainment left a lot to be desired. The production shows were not as good as on other ships. We did enjoy Sammy in the Adagio Lounge. Other lounges were crowded and/or More smoke-filled. We liked the Movies Under the Stars and the dance lessons that were offered.

Our cabin was quite nice with plenty of storage space. The deck was spacious. Our cabin steward was very friendly and helpful.

The ship itself is very pretty and elegant looking. Our biggest "complaint", if you could call it that, would be that it is just too large. This was our 18th cruise and we prefer the smaller ships. Less
