The Crown Princess is a large ship that has lots positive reasons to sail on. The ship is in need of some restoration, but nothing that affected the quality of our cruise. The embarkation out of the port Brooklyn was very well organized and ran about as smoothly and quickly as possible. Our cabin was ready and our steward was by our room when we first arrived. He did a very good job during our 10 day trip. While the cabin was basic, it had all the necessary items. The food in the dining rooms and Horizon Court (buffet) were good, but nothing special. The desserts were just ok, except for the special chocolate additions, which were outstanding. We ate in the Crown Grill, which is one of the specialty restaurants. The service was very average and, unfortunately, the food was not as good as that. When you are paying almost $30 per person additional for a meal, you just expect more. The bar service was good at the bars we visited. The entertainment shows were average, while some of the special people or groups were very good. The magician and both comedians had very good shows that were very entertaining. The magician’s last show was especially creative and just fantastic. The music choices were across many different genres and they were all good. The two ladies that played classical string music were very good. The variety of games offered by the cruise was good. The cruise director (Paul) and his staff added high energy to all of the events that they oversaw. The workout area was large and had full cardio exercise equipment. The locker room was good size and had a nice steam and sauna room attached. There is nothing negative to say about the ship, crew or ports of call. However, the cruise director, his staff and our cabin steward were standouts for our trip. The ship is good, not great. The food is good, not great. This trip from NY to Quebec City during the fall season is a positive experience on the Crown Princess.
