I wanted to cruise the British Isles. We embarked in Le Havre which I did not feel was a comfortable port to embark or disembark. It is 3:30 hours from Paris. It is a long trek back and forth. I found that the staff on the Crown Princess was fantastic. The ship does not look like it has been refurbished. The entertainment is boring and geared to an older crowd. There is no sail off entertainment or parties. I found the that when I was on the ship I was simply bored.

The food in the dining room was fantastic and the service was amazing. We had anytime dining through out the 12 days and we were always seated almost immediately when we arrived. The homemade ice creams for dessert were simply unforgettable. I was disappointed at the fact that there was only one side of the buffet set up for breakfast. I got tired of walking around with my food in my hands to find a table to sit I didn't understand why only one side if they have at least 3 that I could see.

Our stateroom was dark. Very poor lighting but the beds were very comfortable and I was able to slee very well.

Cabin was fine except for the poor lighting.

Port Reviews

Southampton

First we visited Salisbury and then Stonehedge. I found it very pricey.

St. Peter Port (Guernsey)

Great small town. You can walk around and visit the Titanic Experience.

Cobh (Cork)

This is the port where you can see the Titanic Experience. Many pubs to sit around and spend the day.

Dublin

Very fast paced and not much too see.

Greenock (Glasgow)

Lots of churches great quaint small port. took the Hop and Off right off the Port exit. We did not go into Glasgow .

Belfast

This tour was lengthy and very thorough. Our guide was a local professor and he was amazing.

Invergordon (Inverness)

Excellent, thorough and much cheaper than the cruise line.

Edinburgh (South Queensferry)

Took a shuttle to city center and did the hop on and off. Had lunch on the Royal Mile.

While you are walking you feel like you are walking in a city from a fairy tale.

Le Havre

Nothing to do there.
