I want to first thank you for the most wonderful time. This was our first cruise since 1968. I was in the U.S. Air Force for over 28 years and in 1968 I was transferred from Greece to Italy. We went from Iraklion Crete to Pireaus Greece to Brindisi Italy. Which was great but nothing compared to this cruise. To start, the agents along the way were all terrific in their information and guidance. The hotel B Ocean was extremely nice. The embarkation from the hotel to the ship was handled in a very efficient manner. Our cabin was superb with all the amenities and extras plus very spacious. My wife and I slept like angels (terrific bed). The service was unbelievable, with courteous and helpfulness. My wife and I preferred the anytime dining but a few times we made reservations. Every Dining facility was outstanding with a very warm atmosphere. The Da Vinci and Michelangelo had the most exquisite and appealing menus; please praise your chef and staff. We loved the Horizon Court, the variety of food was top quality; deserts were out of this world. All the entertainment could be rated with Las Vegas and Broadway. We enjoyed all the activities especially Trivia, Marriage Game & Battle of the Sexes. We cannot say enough about the service; from the customer service, waiters, cooking staff, our personal room steward (Edsel) and complete crew. Who ever thought up the EZ Check when disembarkation should be given a medal. It was such a great help to know your luggage was being taken care of, Thank You. My wife and I have traveled the world in the military (overseas for over 16 years) and this has been our dream of a lifetime. We have been married for 59 years and now are thinking of making our 60th Anniversary a cruise on the Crown Princess. Thank You for all your kindness and courtesy. Until we meet again. Princess you are the best.

Cabin Review

Oceanview (obstructed view)
Cabin OZ
The cabin was extremely spacious. All the amenities and extras were helpful & the extra space to place our luggage and hang our clothes really help. We did not think our view was that obstructed. We did go on some shore excursions and enjoyed them tremondously.
