Crown Princess Cruise Review by Juliecarling

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

My partner and myself have just returned from a cruise around the Mediterranean . We paid £3650.00 , we paid £150 for parking , £490 for excursions and £981.85 .

This cruise was something we had planned and looked forward too for the last 6 months, however it fell short of our expectations from day one.

We had to queue to board the ship for 2 hours, we had to queue to leave the ship for at least 1 hour on more than one occasion.

The ship was overbooked and overcrowded , with people reporting being offered money not to attend this cruise.

We had to queue to get seats for coffee and in every bar on the ship.

We had to queue to get seats in the restaurant most evenings.

We had to queue to get sun beds and we were only successful on one occasion.

The food was of a poor standard with small portions and often cold after waiting so long.

Three restaurants had the same menu with little choice.

The ship was tired and shabby.

We are dismayed at the amount of money this cruise cost and feel it was a complete waste of our money . Poor service and lack of facilities , substandard food.

We will not travel with Princess cruises again and will not recommend them to family and friends
