Additional details

Sail Date: Aug 2008

My mom and I went on the Baltic Cruise, which included Berlin instead of Oslo unfortunately. The reason we chose Baltic is because i was born in Russia (I´m 30) and my mom lived in St. Petersburg after she married. It was a chance of a lifetime to go back to our roots (it was my mom´s dream to see the wonders of St. Petersburg and to show them to her daughter)..

The first and most important thing that anyone going on a cruise with Crown should know is that they will charge you for everything and anything they can, by charge i mean OVERcharge.

First of all, I arrived via Barcelona to Copenhagen, my mom via NYC. We took a taxi to the port. The cost was 40e for both, Princess charges 45e per person- don´t waste your money. We embarked the cruise hassle free in the afternoon and were ready to sail. I read the booklets in our cabin to see how life on the cruise would be. Rather than talk about the ports, all great, i want to talk about how Princess overcharges on every and any little thing. I felt they were just nickel and diming us to death.

Cabin Review

Our Cabin was very nice for an interior, clean, spacious, large tv and nice bathrrom
