Sail Date: Jul 2013
Cabin: Interior

Left Southampton on Saturday 27th July for a two week western Mediterranean cruise on board the crown princess. Embarkation took half an hour but once on board everything went smoothly. We had a midship cabin on Rivera deck 14, to keep costs down we booked an inside stateroom which saved us 600 compared to my sisters balcony state room directly opposite ours.

First impressions of the ship were good and the public areas were fabulous . We choose a set dining times and were happy we made that decision because anytime diners were queuing for tables every evening. Our dining room was the Di Vinci, the food was good but too many fish dishes for my taste. One evening 5 out of the 6 appetisers were fish and the other choice was sweetbreads yuck ! Only one vegetarian choice too.

The horizon court buffet dining was good but had limited seating, excellent choice of food though with waiters to get you a FREE lemonade, water or hot drink once you were seated.

Lovely cabin small but with everything you need at hand.
