This was our 12th cruise and we anticipated it would have been a lot better then it turned out. The Crown is a new build and we found the ship clean and very well kept. Dining room service was excellent. We were not impressed with the food court however.
Our itinerary included three ports, Princess Cay, Cuaraco and Aruba. Princess Cay is simply a beach which is fine in warm weather, but cruisers need to realize that the Bahamas (where Princess Cay is located on the island of Eluthera just 30 miles from Nassau) can be chilly in January. We had about 65 degrees for the high so a beach day was a bit of a drag. We were delighted we had not rented a $200 bungalow with air conditioning to sit in.
Its a thousand miles from Princess Cay to Cuaraco so this particular cruise included plenty of sea-time and therein was my problem. With 3200 passengers on board, elevator waiting could be a listed acitivity.
Cruisers should note that Crownn Princess's decks 10 and 11 are set-back from the lower decks so that your view from the balcony will not only include the ocean, but the balcony directly below you as well.This cabin was a bit smaller then others we have booked. There was not sufficient room for one of those micro couches. Just a chair. The balcony, on the other hand, is quite spacious.
