Crown Princess Cruise Review by passant
- Sail Date: July 2006
- Destination: Eastern Caribbean
- Cabin Type: Balcony
There is still some visible damage to the CP after the near disaster of several weeks ago. Some shattered window panels on the pool deck still not replaced, and several cabins still uninhabitable (pool water rushed in). Upon boarding we asked a crew member "How was it?" referring to the listing incident. They turned white as a ghost (not a reassuring sign). We also learned that the ship listed about 30 degrees, not the 15 we had read in news reports. Just a few more degrees and the ship would have capsized.
OK, back to our cruise. Several elevators were also still out of service, which made wait times intolerable.
Cabin: Excellent. Food: Over the top excellent. We had the best food on this cruise, and we have sailed many times. Staff: a little surly, not as friendly as past Princess cruises. But they warmed up over the week, Still stinging from their near death experience no doubt.
Good: The Sanctuary, Gym (no fees for classes!), cuisine, and dining room staff Not so Good: Plumbing issues, LIFTS that well, don't
Still, a great cruise. Why we will continue to sail with Princess.
