Crown Princess Cruise Review by k1950m
- Sail Date: July 2010
- Destination: Baltic Sea
- Cabin Type: Balcony
the formal dinners were amazing and have spoiled me for local restaurants. I have nothing but praise for the Princess staff, the kitchen, the dining room personell and the menus. I am almost sorry that this was my first cruise as I believe it will be a hard act to follow..........
Iceland/Norway... expensive ! the forays into town can be cheaper with a sandwich from the boat..and also, there is little time to visit so this saves the cafe time. The excursions from the boat cost double what you'd pay if you book from a local port travel service or online before you go. many times tours around town on a bus etc.... are avail right there as you get off the boat.. for even less than 1/2 . If money is no issue, just book through boat..why not. I did bring two large bottles of wine with me in my suitcase..kept them in the in room refrig..... it is within the princess guidelines.. I asked my steward for a corkscrew as mine broke..and wine glasses..There is a tip structure of $ 10.50 per day charged to your onboard credit card for service. We gave our steward another tip as well. Drinks were mostly $ 6.50 or so... you can save money with a wine card/or a coffee card... I ordered room service often for breakfast..it is continental but it is nice to have coffee in the room as you get ready for the day with a balcony.. it was too chilly to enjoy the balcony for about half the trip. each room has a hairdryer.. nice bathroom, I was happy with my room size and storage and safe. And, now..although " I am not a cruise persoN" I find myself surfing the net looking for more of these 'ESCAPES"

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews
BergenI mention this port because we had ONLY 1/2 day. Make the most of it, go early... It should be extended.... You'll find there are few products made in Norway except for trolls. There is a very cute candle shop near the fish market..along the street with all the little crooked houses. I found interesting gifts for myself and others there.. authentic, actually NOT made in China gifts. the town has many cultures.. that have influenced the architecture. take the bus around the town..get it right outside the port area.. you'll see an opportunity..cheaper than the one throught he boat. you can get off and on..but we took he ride all around.View All 637 Bergen Cruise Port Reviews
