Came out of Dry Dock too soon

Crown Princess Cruise Review by Vitamimi

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Apr 2018
  • Destination: Transatlantic
  • Cabin Type: Oceanview (obstructed view)

We chose this Cruise on the Crown Princess because of the variety of ports for 25 days.

It had just come out of dry dock and full of problems...leaks in many places, laundry facilities not working, vibrations, late and unprepared check-in and the worst selection of food lacking any imagination. The hallways had ripped wall paper, the cabin carpeting was old and the ship had an elevator that had water leakage, so it was closed most of the cruise.

The entertainment was very good. However, there was boring lectures during the day; no exciting topics. The manager of the Customer Relations was very rude to several people when they were upset about the laundry facilities not working. When we expressed our problems with this cruise, the Captains Club manger said "You should have booked a newer ship". The theater on the ship was too small and filled. In order to get a seat, you had to be there 1/2 hour early.The fitness activities were lacking classes.The shore excursions from the ship were above average tour guides.Thank goodness for Cruise Critic...we were able to sign up ahead of time for duplicate bridge games and everyone was so kind.

Cabin Review

Oceanview (obstructed view)
Cabin OV E325

The cabin had new bedding, but it was very heavy and we finally took off the comforter.

The carpeting was faded and old. The shower was very tiny. Lots of storage and space for hanging clothes
