I have been on the Crown previously about 6 years ago and it was wonderful so I was looking forward to being on the ship again. I flew in to Ft. Lauderdale the morning that we were leaving and so went to the ship directly from the airport. The lines to check in were very long, even the priority lines, which I was on. It took about 2-1/2 hours to finally get on board. It seems that everyone had to be checked for the visa for Brazil and the reciprocity fee receipt for Argentina.

When my husband and I boarded, we were shocked to see the wear and tear of the ship. The carpet was very shabby and the ship seemed to have lost its sparkle. I was told that it was scheduled to go to dry dock soon to be overhauled. It sure does need it.

I finally got to our stateroom and was very pleased with the location. It was at the rear of the ship with easy access to the Horizon Buffet and would require a lot of walking to most parts of the ship giving me great exercise. The room itself was roomy and the balcony was the usual size.

Cabin Review

We were very happy with our stateroom. It was a good size and we had plenty of room.
