Crown Princess Cruise Review by ragde
- Sail Date: June 2019
- Destination: British Isles & Western Europe
- Cabin Type: Balcony
The food was excellent. The desserts were consistently good.
The entertainment was below par; the sound system made everything worse- tinny with excessive reverb on every musician and singer.
The salon staff were hard core sales people determined to sell you more services and product rather than delivering on the services you purchased.
The staff overall seemed as tried as the ship.
Our steward did a good job, though we hardly some him and there aren't the extra perks Princess had provided in the past- the attention to details and the offering of services (ice, etc.) that we had been accustomed to.
The one excursion we took with the ship was overprice and did NOT deliver on the items described on the Princess website.
Overall we had a great time in spite of the disappointing ship and service.

Cobh (Cork)We used an outside excursion (Paddywagon). We saw Blarney Castle, the woolen mills and Kinsale but we were not in port long enough to see much of Cork. I would recommend Paddywagon.View All 343 Cobh (Cork) Cruise Port Reviews

Greenock (Glasgow)Used hop on hop off bus. Had a good time but was not in port long enough to experience very much because we had to take the train on a round trip from Greenock.View All 222 Greenock (Glasgow) Cruise Port Reviews

Invergordon (Inverness)Our driver Laura Moon was the very best tour guide I have ever had. She was filled with information and is a great story teller. We saw an incredible amount including Loch Ness, Beauly, Inverness, Clava Cairns, Cawdor Castle and gardens. One of the best excursions I have ever done. Ask for Laura.View All 12,792 Invergordon (Inverness) Cruise Port Reviews

St. Peter Port (Guernsey)Rode the public bus around the island. This island is not equipped to handle two cruise ships in one day. The bus was loaded with cruise passengers and you couldn't see out the windows as a result. Quaint island but not a good port for a large cruise ship.View All 268 St. Peter Port (Guernsey) Cruise Port Reviews
