CARIBBEAN - CROWN PRINCESS - NOV-DEC 2019 Stayed previous night in B Ocean hotel and just used a private hotel shuttle to ship at U$8pp which we thought was reasonable. Medallion class which means you are given a disc instead of a card. It is quite handy in many ways but definitely is for the benefit of Princess. Be aware they are electromagnetic so do not use if you have a pacemaker. Embarkation was easy but we were sent to the wrong line. We were already sea ready so just needed to pick up medallions. Lots of people were sent to wrong line. Disembarkation was well organised and quick. Cabin is roomy enough, bathroom tight as normal. Bed and pillows too soft for us. From aft of ship we had to go to deck seven to access other areas or walk down hall to middle or front elevators. LAUNDRY Laundries on nearly every floor. Laundry on Aloha was small with two top loading washers and two dryers. Token operated at U$3 per load wash and dryer, and US$1.50 for washing product. So basically US$7.50 a load. One dryer was not working for most of second cruise and one of the irons had something stuck to it which ruined a silk shirt. Princess were very good about it but I could only get a cotton shirt from shop. DINING Food was plentiful, very enjoyable and my special dietary needs were well looked after. We ate in the dining room nearly all the time at both a shared table and a table for two. Many staff in need of personal recognition from us but Jelena and Emil and Fernando in the Da Vinci dining room especially deserve a huge thank you. Coffee upstairs was not very good but from coffee shop was better. High tea on sea days. We were treated to a Deluxe Balcony Breakfast one morning. Three trays of food and drink, and a small bottle of bubbles. Way more than we could eat. One night we decided to eat in the buffet for a change. Watched a woman coughing and sneezing, (not into her hands or a tissue), in the buffet restaurant, then go into the food area without sanitising her hands. We left the buffet and continued to eat in the dining room. I did complain to guest services about why they did not reinforce the message of clean hands more often. The answer was, they have sanitisers placed where you have to walk past them. SHIP Lots of pools, plenty of deck chairs but not always available on pool level. Gym is well equipped and well utilised. Found the spa overpriced as usual but even with the port day specials, I did not go due to exchange rate. Remember that 18% tax is added to all services onboard as well. The Sanctuary at the front of the boat is a pay to use area. U$20 half day, U$40 for a full day. Decent selection of movies in cabin but BBC was unavailable for some of the voyage. Cruise director Angela, never contacted me about the Cruise Critic M&M. Not impressed with her lack of communication or visibility on board. No port talks were given. Lots of shopping talks. Casino is a smoking zone so impossible to enjoy without getting a sore throat and smelly clothes, even on non-smoking nights. Perfect trifecta for addictive personalities, gambling, drinking and smoking. Smoke lingers around midship. I prefer the other ships, like Majestic Princess, that have sinks in the lead in to the buffet area to wash your hands and crew with bottles of sanitizer in the eating areas. Two very good entertainment acts whilst we were on. Soprano Heather Lundstad was just fantastic and Gerry London, a singer/impersonator was extremely entertaining. Didn’t find the ship overcrowded. Would we travel on this ship again, probably. PORTS OF CALL BONAIRE Great for beaches, snorkelling and diving. We walked off the ship as we were right there. Nothing much to look at, no transportation unless you book through ship or get a taxi. Tours were basically U$25pp upward no matter what you did. A few shops. Had a coffee right on the water then got back on the ship. CURAÇAO Off ship early, very little open till 9am. Beautiful architecture, tourist shopping available with lots of the same thing but also higher end shops around Renaissance Hotel. Easy to walk around and get into town. Walked off ship past Renaissance hotel and shops over Queen Anne swing bridge. Starbucks coffee, MacDonalds and Subway available. Wifi available at cafe’s and free spots. Cruise ship books out most transportation, so cannot get trolley train unless booked through ship.

U$5 pp return. Only goes when full though so you can end up sitting for a while waiting. I didn’t find much to look at in town. ST THOMAS Ship docked at Havensight Mall.

The free Wifi offered at the tourism office in port didn’t work. Lots and lots of jewellery shops and tourist shops. Nice tablecloth shop but expensive for us due to exchange rate. GRAND TURK Ship docks right at port, very nicely set up area. A few good beach bars, great beach/ sand, pool, Starbucks coffee and some shops. We walked to Jacks Shack at far end of beach purely due to wanting Jerk chicken, which was okay but not like Jamaican jerk. Drink prices were same as onboard. The crew from Crown Princess were all there on an organised staff day for lunch, so very busy. Would try some of the other places if we go back. Swimming pool was a great set up right next door to Margaritaville. FORT LAUDERDALE As we were transiting, we did the Everglades Airboat tour. Whilst fun, I was disappointed.

CARIBBEAN - CROWN PRINCESS - NOV-DEC 2019

Stayed previous night in B Ocean hotel and just used a private hotel shuttle to ship at U$8pp which we thought was reasonable.

Medallion class which means you are given a disc instead of a card. It is quite handy in many ways but definitely is for the benefit of Princess.

Be aware they are electromagnetic so do not use if you have a pacemaker.

Embarkation was easy but we were sent to the wrong line. We were already sea ready so just needed to pick up medallions. Lots of people were sent to wrong line.

Disembarkation was well organised and quick.

Cabin is roomy enough, bathroom tight as normal. Bed and pillows too soft for us.

From aft of ship we had to go to deck seven to access other areas or walk down hall to middle or front elevators.

LAUNDRY

Laundries on nearly every floor. Laundry on Aloha was small with two top loading washers and two dryers. Token operated at U$3 per load wash and dryer, and US$1.50 for washing product. So basically US$7.50 a load.

One dryer was not working for most of second cruise and one of the irons had something stuck to it which ruined a silk shirt. Princess were very good about it but I could only get a cotton shirt from shop.

DINING

Food was plentiful, very enjoyable and my special dietary needs were well looked after.

We ate in the dining room nearly all the time at both a shared table and a table for two.

Many staff in need of personal recognition from us but Jelena and Emil and Fernando in the Da Vinci dining room especially deserve a huge thank you.

Coffee upstairs was not very good but from coffee shop was better.

High tea on sea days.

We were treated to a Deluxe Balcony Breakfast one morning. Three trays of food and drink, and a small bottle of bubbles. Way more than we could eat.

    Annandale Waterfall
    Stopped at a small but clean Spice shop.
    Grand Etang forest and lake.
    Fort Frederick
    Rum distillery unfortunately was closed early for some reason.
    Traffic was very heavy coming back into town but we made it with plenty of time.
