Crown Princess Cruise Review by grandma cruises*

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Apr 2017
  • Destination: Transatlantic
  • Cabin Type: Balcony

We (hubby and I) had always wanted to try a transatlantic cruise. We were fortunate to back with a 14 day Med. cruise on the same ship and the same cabin. Started the day with the gym then headed to the buffet for breakfast. We were always early, food was fine and we were ready to start our day by 9am. We were able to keep busy with the enrichment programs in the morning. We knew the Crown was an older ship but had no problems. Our mid ship balcony cabin was in good condition. Our steward was terrific. We knew the bathroom was the older style. Always had enough towels and hot water. We had cruised on the Regal and the newer style bathrooms are great but we wanted the itinerary. Lunch was usually at one of the outside restaurants. Dinner was mostly in the main dining room. We chose anytime dining. Always found plenty to choices for dinner. Never waited more the 20 minutes for a table We were off the ship in every port. The weather was in the 60's and 70's every day.

We did a show just about every night. Enjoyed the piano player singer in the bar.

Cabin was kept well by our steward. Plenty of room for our clothing. Older style bathroom but enough room for all of our stuff.
