Additional details

Sail Date: Mar 2013
Cabin: Balcony

7 Night W Caribbean on Crown Princess Mar 23, 2013 Perspective: We are both 50ish ;). We have cruised 25 or so times mainly on main stream cruises, and did cruise once on Crystal. We favor value for the buck and cruising off season away from school holidays. Usually we cruise just to be on a ship and enjoy a relaxing vacation. This cruise was booked one week before sailing. It was close to Spring Break and Easter but no issues.

Pre-Cruise: We drove to the ship. Parked at Galveston Park N Cruise. Booked online to save a few bucks. Nice close parking with no shuttle. We dropped luggage going and carried it off and crossed the street returning.

Embarkation: We arrived a little before noon. No wait at security. Each bag had some wine in it that went through with no issue. Also had plastic bottles of water in one that was not examined. We had Platinum check-in and embarkation which saved a lot of time. We were in the dining room (Princess has one dining room open for embarkation lunch from 12 to 1:30) by a little after 1.

Cabin Review

Balcony

Cabin BD

A746, Far aft with angled balcony. Balcony is much larger than others on Aloha deck, however it has the same furniture on it so the space is a bit wasted. Cabin is the same as typical balcony ones. Cabin is quiet.
