Not Perfect, But Not The Voyage From Hell, Either

Review for Crown Princess to Transatlantic

I love long sea days, so I looked forward to trying a TransAtlantric crossing for the first time. The last half of this 20-day trip is mostly at sea and I loved it. Big hint: if you are sailing from Europe to the US in December, book a port balcony cabin if you want the sun. We booked Baja 708 on the port side and soaked in a week of beautiful sun every day. The weather on all crossings varies, of ...

We flew into Venice with Princess E-Z-Air, using United and Lufthansa, Tulsa - Houston - Frankfurt - Venice. Princess offered a better price than I could find online, trying to put together our own itinerary; all went smoothly. We stayed at the Santa Chiara Hotel, near the bus station at Piazzale Roma, and there was no noise at all from the Piazzale. Our room was very satisfactory for the ...

Smooth Transatlantic Cruise

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

As avid transatlantic cruisers, we knew what to expect. We flew to Venice and stayed 3 nights, then boarded the Crown around noon on Dec. 2,2012. I believe the ship was pretty full since this was the first crossing that would end in Galveston, TX. Needless to say, it was a Texas cruise all the way. Our room steward was the best we have ever had. Our unit was spotless and always placed back in ...

This was the "Cruise from Hell". My husband and one of our traveling companions were infected with the Norovirus on the ship. They sent medicine which they charges us for! The newspaper article I read said that the rooms were disinfected 3 times a day. NOT TRUE. Our room was "passed through" one time only. We heard many different stories about prior infected guests on many other Crown Princess ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

We had a wonderful cruise for our 30th anniversary. We loved the itinerary and because it was December the ports were not crowded at all. Norovirus was onboard but we never caught it. The staff was busy cleaning daily. It turned out to be a non issue for us and most others we spoke to. We had anytime dining and the food was excellent in all the dining rooms including the specialty dining. ...

E. Med - Adriatic & Greek Isles/Italy Cruise

Review for Crown Princess to Europe - Eastern Mediterranean

This was an Adriatic & Greek Isles itinerary primarily sailing from Venice to Civitavecchia (for Rome). We always choose our cruises for the itinerary, coupled with the cruise line & price. We are in our early 60s & are not retired. We have sailed the Greek Isles portion of this cruise in 2010 on another cruiseline & wanted to return to those same ports, plus see some new ports in the Adriatic. ...

Great time of year to cruise the Mediterranean

2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

This trip was to celebrate my wife's retirement from teaching, and for once, we were able to travel at a time when school was in session and the crowds a little less intense. The weather throughout our cruise could best be described as "pleasant," with daily highs in the mid-70s and lows around 60....just about perfect for the port excursions we took. We arrived in Venice three days prior to ...

Wonderful Ports but Retirement Village Atmosphere

6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

I'll start by saying we had a great time. We were a large group so that made it even better. The weather was 72 almost every day. We left on Oct. 15. The food was very good throughout the ship and the service was outstanding - absolutely first class. We had a mini-suite on Dolphin Deck. Loved the extra room and two televisions, not to mention the bathtub. However, I would never recommend the ...

Excellent Eastern Mediterranean Cruise

6-10 Cruises • Age 70s

This was our third time on the Crown Princess, fifth on Princess, and eighth overall. The charm of this cruise is the incredible port and tour selection. The itinerary was changed because of a general strike in Athens on our port day so Athens and Santorini were switched. Many tours on this cruise require a lot of walking over uneven surfaces and climbing many steps so choose tours carefully. ...

The Crown is the oldest of the triplets and being 6 years old, she is still in great shape. We originally were in a mini-suite but was offered and upgrade to the second largest suite on the ship for less than $700. The extras you get with the suite are fantastic if you don't overpay for the privilege. Embarkation would have been easier if they had the luggage drop somewhere near the People ...
