Crown Princess Cruise Review by jimkath

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jul 2017
  • Destination: the Baltic Sea
  • Cabin Type: Balcony

The ship needs a good re-fit , dated, in my opinion not enough staff on all departments.

Cabin was ok , The Horizan restaurant was never fully opened, walkways closed off leading to long walks to get food, which became bland after having to eat there every day,seating allways seemed full and forget waiter service dinning in the 2 free restaurants unless you want to eat after 19.45 hrs . No restaurant info on tv .

No soft drink stations around the ship. Movies under the stars only good if visiting a hot country, not for the Fjords. Entertainments were excellent

Overall a very disappointing week on board this ship.

The best place for coffee is the International Café served by Lucy , try to avoid the tea and coffee in the Horizan restaurant.

The tours arranged by Princess were very expensive, my tip of travelling to the Fjords is to pre book from home.

Looked forward to this port as for the Glacier trip booked it by ourselfs at port

Lovely views on the way until we got to the troll cars station, thewy were running , but not for us ??????? they had a power cut the previous day so the persons that were supposed to go yesterday went today , no troll cars available = rip off.... so why did the cruise people or the booking sites not inform us. we could have walked from the station but as for bad feet i dont think so

i feel annoyed and disgusted that i did not get too see what i went for all down too money ...again

45 min journey up winding roads to see lovely views

then 45 min up the other winding roads to see other lovely views
