We chose this cruise because of the visit to the North Cape. We always choose the location and then see which cruise company is going there. In this case it was Princess. I cannot fault the itinerary. We stopped at some beautiful ports and the scenery was stunning. We did our own thing as the cost of the ship's tours were very expensive. At the North Cape we arranged on the internet for a guided tour that took in a fishing village, a visit to a Sami family plus reindeer and we were shown King Crabs. All this with wonderful narration and history of the area. All this for half the price of a ships tour which was unguided and just took you straight to the North Cape. Crown Princess is very tired. Cannot fault the staff who were friendly and helpful, but found the menu choices limited. Our first tender port was a complete disaster but when asked what went wrong, no two answers were the same.

Wonderful itinerary, shame about the cabin!

Cabin Review

Interior
Cabin IA C420
Never, never select this cabin. We chose it from the deck plan because it was inside and mid-ships and I have been told that this is best if you are a poor sailor. What the deck plan did not show is that there were no cabins underneath as it sat above some kind of machinery that made a constant loud noise both day and night. They would never really explain what it was. I had very little sleep for the whole of the voyage. The ship was full and the only thing they could offer was a pair of earplugs. Near the end of the voyage I was offered a cabin on deck 14, right at the front of the ship, a nightmare for a bad sailor.
