We enjoyed our cruise on the Crown in spite of it being a very dated ship. The staff and crew make sailing on the Crown a pleasure. They are all very friendly and helpful, from our steward, Jason, to our waiter, Viktoria, and everyone else. The shows in the main theater were, with a few exceptions, rather amateurish. The comedians rocked. The other night clubs put on good shows, however the shows in the Explorers Lounge were always turn away crowded. The food in the Main Dining Room was excellent, as was the service. The wait staff was very knowledgeable and their recommendation were spot on. I wish I could say the same for the buffet. The room and presentation are very dated. Food selection is limited and bland. The layout makes moving around difficult and splitting the room into two separate sides with no access to each other makes finding seats much more difficult than it needs to be. Our cabin was very comfortable and Jason, our room steward, kept it clean, well serviced and supplied with ice. Overall, we had a nice, but not great, cruise on the Crown.

Great Staff and Crew, Tired Ship

Cabin BB A317
Nice cabin. A little smaller than on other ships we've sailed. Very quiet and good location. Cabin maintenance was spot on. Our steward was very attentive.
