  3. Crown Princess
We love leaving the Midwest in the winter and head to the Caribbean. This was a great trip! The Crown is going into Dry Dock for some upgrades and I am sure they will all be great upgrades. We were lucky and already had the new mattress and loved it. The crew was amazing and did everything they could to help. Horizon Court is still a downfall for Princess. After having been on the Regal and seeing the new set up, it makes the old design harder to deal with. Don't get me wrong, we will continue sailing with Princess for all our cruises but there are changes for the older ships that would be nice improvements. The entertainment was good and there was always something going on. You could do as much or as little as you wanted. We did back to back with Eastern and Southern and really liked the ports we visited. We had been to most of them before but we enjoy them all and returning after the hurricane damage was interesting. We feel the islands need the tourist dollars to rebuild and thrive again. The Islanders we came in contact with were all grateful the ships were stopping again. At the end of the 16 days for these 2 cruises we disembarked and walked across the parking lot and boarded the Regal for 2 more weeks in the Caribbean. In 30 days we only repeated 1 port and that was St. Thomas. Even that wasn't an issue since we had a beautiful day for the 1st visit and it was really rainy and messy the second visit. We just stayed onboard the 2nd visit and made it a "sea day".

What a great time we had!

Cabin Review

Interior
Cabin IB A312
I need a scooter and this was a handicalled cabin. That makes it so nice because I can drive right thru the door and have room to park. It also does not have a step into the bathroom or shower (which also has a seat in it).
