Crown Princess Cruise Review by HVDT
- Sail Date: February 2019
- Destination: Caribbean
My wife and I took a cruise on the Crown Princess from February 25 to March 17 in the Caribbean. we had a mini suite. We had sailed with several other cruise lines before, but this cruise was the first one with Princess. In short, we have been very disappointed and will not select Princess again. A few examples:
Buffet: The choice of food on the buffet deck 15 was very limited. Plastic plates and wine glasses, first time we experienced this. The chairs were dirty. The omelet making process was cumbersome. Despite the two areas on deck 15 it was always difficult to find a table in the morning.
Dining room: The menu in the dining rooms was repetitive and the quality of the food was not very good. A few times we had to return our plates and did complain at the desk.
Cabin: The sofa was old and not very comfortable.
Bath room: No toiletry products such as a shower cap etc. The water from the cold water tap in the bathroom and the shower was very hot for 20 days.
Bars: The bars like the Wheelhouse bar, Crooners bar and the Piazza were dull and the entertainment lasted only for a short length of time. We are late diners
Shops: My wife was not very impressed with the shops. Very limited choice.
Health: A lot of people got sick and so did we. Throat infections etc. The medical facility was OK, but the treatment didn’t help very much.
Library: The library was extremely poor. The majority of the shelves were empty. Normally the library is well stocked and it is fun to be there during the days at sea.
Destinations: The stop at Princess Cays the first destination after leaving Fort Lauderdale was a waste of time. Because we booked two cruises back to back, we were there two times.
General impression: Not very friendly, no smiles by the majority of the employees.
It was the worst cruise we ever did and as I said before we will not cruise again with Princess.
