Crown Princess is a beautiful ship, but not beautifully designed, it is all very bland in colors and finishes. One area looks like every other area. Nothing unique or memorable.
Cold, cold, cold ship.... cold in your state room, cold in the restaurant, cold in the common areas of the ship. Even with the 2 room thermostat’s set on high heat, the room remained extremely cold. It is a miserable environment to be so very cold for a 10 day cruise.
Anytime Dining..... the Concierge and staff of the dining room (Michaelangelo or DaVinci) will make you wait 40 minutes or longer for a seat if you do not want to sit with other couples. They often tell you that you could be seated almost immmediately if you will sit at a large table of people rather than a table for two. Treatment by Wait Staff not that good. We visited Michelangelo twice and never returned. We ate at the buffet where there was less drama. As for Crown Princess Anytime Dining... for a couple of two it is non-existent. Even when you tried to make a reservation, reservations were only available at 5:00, 5:15 and after 7:30.
Way to Cold, way to many maintenance issues. See overall comments.
