Default Mini Suite on Crown Princess?

What can you tell me about the ship and this stateroom? Any pictures? We've never cruised before and are considering booking it for March 09 for the Eastern Caribbean.

Default Welcome to the Princess board!

You will get lots of answers here for your Princess questions, trust me! I did reply to you on the other board for 1st timers, too.
I've found that webshots has tons and lots of pics for what you want to look up. If you just put mini suite in the search, or even princess mini, you'll find lots of them! Can even type in crown Princess and will find a lot, too.
Then again, the Crown is the only ship I have done my 'homework' on.

Thanks for your other reply too. I responded there.

How does the personal choice dining work? Is it similar to NCL?

What type activities/shows does Crown Princess offer? Anyone know if they will show the NCAA men's basketball tourney on the big screen? We both love basketball!

Also, the mini suites on the Dolphin deck have their balconies totally exposed to the elements. The mini suites on the Emerald deck are completely covered.

The Dolphin deck is on the bottom

Thanks for the pictures. I'm a bit confused. So the Dolphin is bottom and open. It looks like the Emerald above is partially open too. Am I just seeing this wrong? I presume the covered would be better?

From left to right in the photo, dolphin deck (minisuite total uncovered) caribe deck (regular balcony cabin)1/2 uncovered 1/2 covered.
The Emerald deck mini Suites (totally covered) are not in the photo and are only at the rear portion of the Emerald deck.
Hope this helps!

That does. Would you suggest Emerald since it's covered? Are those the only covered balconies on the Crown for mini suites?

We will be on the Grand this fall. Emerald, mini. We were told to grab the last mini on either side as the "balcony" has a wrap around and is larger. You can also see the wake. So I took everyone's advise and booked the last one starboard. Over the lounge but told noise not that big a deal. I'll take the extra size balcony over alittle noise.

Wonder is Crown layout is the same?

Smile Crown???

Crown is slightly different from the Grand.
For a covered balcony (mini suite) Grab an Emerald deck one. No one can look down on you and you can look directly down to the water.
It's our favorite deck!

Do you feel the movement a ton back of the ship?

LOL.. cruising can be as addicting as Disney, hubby better get used to it.

Welcome to Princess forum, the Crown is a gorgeous ship. Mini suites are the way to go or if you can swing it, look at the Family Suite XS which is a mini suite with an inside attached that share a large sitting area and extra long balcony

Thanks for the info, Cass. And am I right that your better half is Rob? If so, I love reading your reports, especially the food and ice cream!

Hi again, no that is another Cass - I think her site is cassworld.com and she posts on the DIS.

I do have DIS trip reports - but no Rob and not much ice cream! (I'm diabetic)

Have fun planning your cruise

Smile Feeling movement on Emerald Deck

Have been on the Emerald Deck for our last 4 cruises, and the movement has not troubled us at all. You will feel some, but nothing that even kepp me awake--or for that matter woke me up.
It's a wonderful quite location!
