Crown Princess Cruise Review by mtab
- Sail Date: November 2017
- Destination: Western Caribbean
- Cabin Type: Balcony
The first seating in the Princess Theatre fills up but we discovered there were always seat at the later show. The production shows were also excellent. After the "Blame it on the Boogie" show, the entertainers go up to the deck party and continue. I know alot of people skip the deck party - don't. They have changed it and they bring in the "Love Boat" theme to the party - very touching and fun. We were both even lucky in the casino. We don't hang out at the bars.
We went on this ship when it was new and while it needs some refurbishments, it didn't affect us at all. It was clean and all the personnel were pleasant and friendly. Service was very good. The size of this ship is perfect.
While my husband likes the pool, I prefer the games. The only thing I'll say about the pool is I noticed both pools only have ladders to get in and out.
The only complaint would be the mattress. It obviously needed replacing and an eggcrate didn't help much. Our steward Russell tried. Our room was always clean and he was quick at filling requests. He introduced himself as soon as we came in.
The embarkation and disembarkation were incredibly quick and easy. We're platinum and that might have helped with embarkation. Our room was ready.
We didn't do any excursions as we had been to these ports before. Costa Maya has a very long pier and everyone walked. It could be a problem for some. Costa Maya and Cozumel both had too many ships and passengers in port.
I won't say much about the food except it was good and service was excellent tho steak was tough. We ate at Sabatini's one night - save your money - the dining room was better. Ice cream is ice milk but they sell gelato.

Costa MayaThe pier is very long. First thing you have to walk thru a very long liquor store packed with tourists and return the same way. major nuisance especially if you have a disability. there are lots of souvenier shops here with mostly the same thing in each. we didn't do an excursion. you can catch a shuttle to downtown from here. there is also a shuttle to a waterpark. we didn't do either so can't comment.View All 2,558 Costa Maya Cruise Port Reviews

CozumelI know there are at least 2 piers here. It's typical with lots of passengers, ships, crowds and souvenier shops. We were going to Paradise Beach but never made it.View All 6,741 Cozumel Cruise Port Reviews
