Truly a wonderful trip to the Baltic region. Crew and staff were courteous and eager to assist. Dinning in the Specialty Restaurants was an experience I would certainly encourage you to try. Our Suite was exquisite as were some of the special wines at the wine bar. Princess tours were wonderful and I would encourage you to try as many as you can.

Parking was great, boarding was slow.  We were told there were computer problems.  Luggage was in the room.  Steward was not very friendly and one day was very rude to my wife.  His "boss" apologized.  Made for an uncomfortable trip.  "Anytime Dining" was not as advertised because we were only two people.  We were on our Anniversary cruise and wanted to dine alone so we had to wait for tables.  The Dining Room was very nice and the waiters terrific.  Breakfast and lunch at the buffet was wonderful with great staff.  The "Crown Steakhouse" was not worth the money and my veal chop was overcooked and tough.  One show was terrific, the rest not so good. Zumba and it's instructor were excellent.  Spa was good.  Music on the decks was too loud and would appeal to a younger crowd of which there were not many.  Alan and the platinum photography session was fantastic.  disembarking was fast, smooth and wonderful.

My wife and I were in the Owners Suite. Very nice room. No one greeted us when we boarded the ship and we had to find our way to our suite. Never heard from anyone from Passenger Services if the suite was OK of if we needed anything. Had to fight off the ship photographers at every meal and every port. The food and the service at Sabatini's and the Crown Grill was excellent. The food at the buffet was not good at all.

A great Alaskan cruise

This was our first cruise, so we had no pre-conceptions. The ship seemed well organized, safe, clean, and well-maintained compared to hotels. Crown Princess staff seemed to take the prevention of illness through food contamination very seriously. The normal food was excellent and fresh compared to restaurants. The extra charge meal at Sabatinis was superb. The extra charge meal in the Crown grill was also excellent. The wines we ordered on ship were excellent and reasonably priced. The staff was professional, approachable, always friendly. The manner in which the ship approached the glaciers in Alaska and made a 720-degree turn allowed everyone a proper view of natures wonder. We will choose Princess again.

The dining staff in particular were fantastic. We had anytime dining but made reservations for 6 guests every evening. Although we couldn't request a particular table, when we got to the dining room the Head waiter always made sure we got the table we wanted. The Waitress for table 463 in the Da Vinci dining room was wonderful. Almira was attentive, prompt and very pleasant. The head waiter Silvio made a point to come and talk to us at the table every evening. He even stopped at our table in the mornings on the Lido Buffet. He made recommendations for dishes and even gave us some of his special recipes from Italy. It was a very enjoyable experience.

Needs Some Work

By: Simple Traveler

Reviewed on: 23 Oct 2015

Although our cruise was pleasant, the ship is in need of some updating and repairs. The dining areas had very low ceilings and very few Windows to enjoy the view. Elevators are too small for the number of people and were not always working. Bathrooms in the public areas near the main theatre only have a few stalls to handle the hoards of women leaving the theatre. Cabin and bathrooms need updating as they are very outdated. On the plus side, the specialty dining venues were amazing and beautifully decorated.

Crown Princess did an outstanding job on our Alaskan cruise. It was our favorite ship, so far and I had to fight back tears when we were departing from the ship. The crew works so hard, the food was excellent. I would say the only concern would be that our 20 year old really didn't fall into any group of activities, for his age. He was too young to do the adult things, and he was too old to be involved in the teen activities. He still had a wonderful time, but was left out of certain fun things. Next time he'll be an adult! :) Looking to go back next summer!!

Only our second Princess cruise out of many cruises. The food was a major disappointment. Dining room food was hit and miss. Horizon Court food was average to poor with too much repetition. Our dining room waiter and room steward were outstanding. Beyond them, the staff were not overly friendly and certainly didn't make us feel welcomed. Their wine program was a joke since they were out of many bottles early in the cruise and it only got worse. In spite of that they kept selling the wine bottle packages. But when you went to order you very limited in the selection unless you wanted to pay an up charge for something available and not covered by the package. Can you say "bait and switch"?

We had a balcony room adjacent to our friends (two other couples). We were able to open the panel to connect our balconies and enjoy wine together outside our rooms. The food was wonderful! I have dietary needs and the head waiter always made sure I had the next day's menu ready and in order. He always made sure I had a special dessert. The shows were fun. We enjoyed massages, movies, late night snacks, and interesting lectures. Our room was beautiful and very well attended by our steward.

Crown Princess

Reviewed on: 23 May 2017

The ship is clean and very well maintained. The crew do their best to provide quality service. Getting on and off the ship is seamless and very well executed - even with excursions. Entertainment at night is enjoyable , but why must every cruise have a lousy comic/magician? It just gets old! The production company is outstanding - more of them would be preferred. My main criticism is the lack of activities during sea days. Lectures would be interesting along with classes in something other than origami. I get so tired of seeing items for sale constantly. Even the galley tour ended in an area with tables covered with discount clothing. It was disgusting!

Canadian experience

By: Best Grandma

Reviewed on: 23 Nov 2017

The time was nice, but the ship seemed a little bit old. The Captain was one of the best and the most friendly, but people got sick on board. I found the shows a little dissapointing and the local tours were a little bid hurried considering that the majority of the passengers are experiencing of the Golden Years. For example we had booked the excursion going to Salem, Mass. and I did not read the bottom part of the ticket. I onlly went by the fact that the bus would leave at 8.00. We were there 10 minutes before 8 and the bus was gone. I thought that the tour coordinator handled this very poorly even knowing that two people were missing. I think that one option would have been to take a taxi to meet with the tour, an expense that we would have incurred gladly. Instead we were stuck with the "Duck tour" that barely covered the city of Boston. Two days later there was an excursion to Jamestown and this time there were three buses and the bus left at least 10-15 minutes later.

Just out of dry-dock

By: CarolQ

Reviewed on: 25 Apr 2018

The ship was just out of dry-dock and could have stayed for another week but I'm glad they didn't keep her there as we'd not be crossing the Atlantic if they did. While we were aboard, the crew was continuing with upgrades such as new carpeting. The Guest Relations people were helping passengers all the while crew members were laying carpet under their feet. You wouldn't have known it except every once in a while, a head would pop up with old carpeting and take it away. One area going by the theater had really loose-looking carpet and a crew member was vacuuming it and I gave a 'tisk-tisk' because of it but the next day it was flat and even, he had just laid it down - unsewn when I first saw it. The two new shows, 'Magic to Do' and 'Encore' were outstanding. Magic to Do was like Cirque du Soleil and 'Encore' was all singing - everyone wore mics, including the dancers and they all sang - so very nice. I cannot lavish enough praise about these shows. Food was great with lots of seafood.
