Crown Princess - 13 May 2017

My wife and I have completed 25 previous voyages with Princess and six with P&O. Princess is one of our favourite cruise lines and their ability to cater for my wife’s gluten free diet has always been an important factor. We have also sailed with Holland America, Celebrity, Royal Caribbean, Azamara Club Cruises and Regent Seven Seas. We are not keen on the largest ships, so we have also patronised Azamara and Regent.

We booked this ‘no-fly’ cruise as a late deal, because we had not been to Corsica for many years and had never visited Genoa. We also hoped that the weather in the Mediterranean would be better than in the UK.

Cabin Review

Oceanview (obstructed view)

Cabin OZ

Adequate for a two-week cruise and the view over a lifeboat was only partially obstructed. Everything was spotlessly clean and our beds were comfortable, although the shower room was very small. We were glad the cabin was in the forward area, because there were dreadful engine vibrations towards the stern of the ship.

Travelled by train from Livorno to Lucca.

Crown Princess diverted to Santa Margherita, so we remained aboard the ship.

Rome (Civitavecchia)

We rented a car and drove to Lake Bracciano. Highly recommended for passengers who have visited Rome previously.
