Crown Princess Cruise Review by NatalieS

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Mar 2017
  • Destination: South America
  • Cabin Type: Oceanview (obstructed view)

We were going to Patagonia, but we decided Uruguay would work better.

Embarkation was problematic. We were robbed in security in Buenos Aires. Why have security cameras if the face is unclear? We got to see the film of the guy stealing our stuff. Why didn't all of our stuff come through the conveyor belt?

The cabin was comfortable; the service and amenities were good; the food was lovely, and the ports were interesting. Onboard expenses such as tips, $27/day, were high. The Crown Princess was looking a little tired. LIghts were out in the atrium, and several things didn't work or were well worn. We enjoyed our excursions, which were conducted by enthusiastic and knowledgeable people.

The port lectures were terrific, but there were no educational lectures, which we've on all of our longer cruises. There were many jewelry and art sales and other opportunities to spend money. How about bringing back those lectures? The opening show, Magic, was very good -- a pleasant departure from the usual loud 1950s-60s production shows.

Disembarkation in Fort Lauderdale was a zoo. We nearly missed our plane.

All considered, sure we'd go again!
