Cabin: Mini-Suite with Balcony

First off, let me mention that this cruise was wholly chartered by Air Miles Canada and we didn’t pay a dime for it. On board were approximately 1000 collectors and their guests, as well as partner personnel and Air Miles employees who had won the cruise. Needless to say, our experience was likely different as we did not have an international crowd, nor did we actually pay for the Crown Princess’ services in any way, shape or form.

THE GOOD

- Food: We thought that the menu was diverse enough and well executed (they always got our cooks just right). They had theme nights going at the buffet, what with Italian, Mexican or “Oriental” food being served. The dining rooms followed those themes but often with a more refined twist. We honestly don’t understand why anyone would opt for the speciality restaurants, as steak, seafood and pasta was available on every dining room’s menu and in the buffet every single night. Contrary to what others have been posting, we never felt like butter in the dining room was being rationed in any way, there being three or four pats on the table even when we sat just by ourselves.

Mini-Suite with Balcony

Cabin MD

While we liked our stateroom, we didn't really see the appeal of paying more for the mini-suite. All you really get is a couch to sit on and watch TV. Other than that, we found that the staterooms were in need or some TLC; darkened grout, chipped furniture, scuff marks, etc.
