"We chose this cruise for the length,dates and rates and that we had already experienced the Crown on a previous cruise. By chance the ports of call were all interesting ones. We only booked about 10 days before..."Read More

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. ...

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 ...

This was our second cruise (both on Princess.) I talked my parents into joining us for their first visit to Italy and our first to Greece and Turkey knowing that we would be able to see a lot without hauling luggage around or having to check in and out of hotels. We are American, in our late 40's, and my parents are "young" 70's. The trip included an extra week in Rome split on either end of the ...

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 ...

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. ...

My wife and I cruised recently on the Crown Princess from Venice, on to Dubrovnik, Croatia, then to Corfu, Greece, as well as Katakolon, Greece, followed by Mykanos, Santorini and Athens, then topped off with 2 days at swa, then a day in Naples and finally disembarking in Rome, Italy. The Crown Princess is a huge ship and the service onboard was very good - be it help from the Front Desk, Room ...

We got into Venice on August 26 at 10:30 am after an overnight flight from Canada. We took the bus to Piazzale Roma and then easily found Hotel Antiche Figure, where we spent two nights before boarding the ship. We used the vaporetto, venice's public transit system extensively to tour the city, plus got lost many times on the streets. On the day of embarkation, we took the people mover to the ...

I'll preface by saying this was a last minute booking with little preparation for the various ports. Our port activity decisions were based solely on an electronic copy of Rick Steve's book and the ship's port expert's TV show the night prior to each visit. We found Rick Steve's book to be invaluable. We thoroughly enjoyed each port and would return to any of them in a heartbeat. Following ...

We have just returned from a fantastic Mediterranean cruise on the Crown Princess to celebrate our 45th wedding anniversary. Actually this story begins a few days before we flew to Venice to board the ship when my husband tore a calf muscle. While he was having an ultrasound at the hospital to rule out a blood clot, I was on the phone to Princess to talk about the impact of this on our plans. ...
