St Petersburg port was the reason for choosing this cruise and it didn't disappoint. We had 5 days of port excursions in 5 days. Exhausting but worth it. Glad we booked our independent tours in St Petersburg and Gdansk despite being told repeatedly that we had to go with a Princess tour. Not necessary because Alla Tours supplied all the relevant visa wavers. Brilliant tour guide and small group with our own mini bus.We were very disappointed with the information given on board about the various ports. Luckily we had done our homework before so knew how to visit each independently. Cheaper than Shore excursions and you can plan your own time and interests. We have been on Crown Princess before but did find that this time it felt tired and in urgent need of refurbishment. The carpets and bathrooms require replacements. Embarkation was quick and most efficient, in fact we were on board in less than 20 minutes. We were amazed at the cheerfulness of all the crew. Despite their long hours they always greeted you with a smile and were very happy to help.

Generally excellent but with a few issues

Cabin Review

Oceanview
Cabin OC P314
Small but adequate for 2 people. With 4 inhabitants it would be very tight.
Ideal position for the International Cafe and the Plaza.
Plaza Deck Inside Cabins, Outside Cabins
