We chose this cruise for the itinerary. The cruise was crossing the North Atlantic. There were not enough on-board activities for the days at sea. Every common area was crowded and it was difficult to find a seat. There were not enough enrichment lectures. The ship needs to go into dry-dock and be updated. The walls in the corridors were dirty and the elevators were slow or under repair. The food was good as well as the service. I did not like the lunch buffet at Horizon Court. Too much pushing to buy jewelry, art, liquor etc. The lounge entertainment was good, the production shows were fair. Some of the headliners were good, but the two impressionists were terrible. The shore excursions that I booked through Princess were good... not overly expensive. There should have been more activities and there should have been a covered pool, considering the many sea days. They need to upgrade this class of ships.

Crown Princess is in Need of Updates
