Crown Princess Cruise Review by SandyCruising

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Mar 2017
  • Destination: South America
  • Cabin Type: Interior

We have been on this ship several times in the last couple years. The ship is ok-not our favorite. Had some great crew members take care of this time on the ship. The crew in Crooner's Bar was awesome(especially Vish). Carmine in Vines was awesome as well. We only did one tour with the ship. Most of the time we like to explore ports on our own. The entertainment was good --some just ok but some was really good. We picked this cruise due to the itinerary. We had wonderful 2 days in Rio--what an amazing area. We had 4 new ports in the Caribbean that were fun. Would have preferred to skip Salvador--way too many people stealing. Though we did have a nice meal in a little café as we walked through town. Loved that part way thru cruise Static Band came on board---we had seen them last year on this same ship--love the music they play.

Cabin Review


We are very picky on cabins especially inside cabins I use other companies sites to pick our cabin. If you are a couple & like your beds together you want to stay away from rooms that have 3rd & 4th person available--as a bunch of these are with bunks added on after the fact & we have problems with hitting into them.

We had been here before in 2004 and so we didn't do anything other than fly in &take transport over to the ship.

Rio de Janeiro

We had our own guide & did all these sites with him. He knew his city & we had such an amazing time.
