Recent impressions of Crown?

Recommended Posts

I know she is getting older, but how do you feel about the ship?

The Crown is actively scheduled where we really want to go in the next

few years with itineraries we like. Darn... wish it was the Regal

Thanks!

Not sure if you call it 'recent', but we were on the Crown a year ago....

 

It remains our FAVORITE ship!

I actually have the Regal booked for next year.....I am saying 'darn....wish it was the Crown' 🤣

While we prefer the Royal class ships over all the other Princess ships we sailed the Crown last Feb/March & found it to be in great shape. They've definitely keep up with the maintenance & improvements over the years. 

 

In the food dept. we also though it was very impressive over some of the other ships. (ie Caribbean Princess). We still prefer the Royal class ships for food selections but the Crown still remains among the top ships for the Horizon court and DR food offerings in both prep and service. 

Unless your extremely critical about everything, I doubt if you'll be disappointed.

We were on the crown twice this year. It continues to be one of our favorite ships. Love the itineraries it does and the staff

We will be on the Crown August 29th and am disappointed with the many negative reviews it's getting for the British Isles.  Hope my fears become unfounded.

We sailed her in Feb 2018 to the Caribbean ABC's and loved the ship.....no issues for us.

We are sailing on her for New Year 10 dayer to Southern Caribbeans. Just booked!

We will probably miss seafood selections of Royal in buffets and huge Piazza, but looking forward to better pool setups.

I know.

As much as I liked beautiful Royal it is better two have 4 pool areas with various purposes vs 2.

 

Royal Princess

2) Adult Pool

Crown Princess (sister to Ruby and Caribbean which we sailed on)

1) Neptune Reef

2) Calypso

3) Aft Terrace Pool

4) Lotus Spa pool

Royal Princess probably worked better for our last New Year celebrations in both Piazza and Lido deck dancing, but on other days forward adult pool was too windy in some reason and 4 felt less crowded.

We have sailed the Crown three times in 11 months including the British Isles. No complaints at all - we love the Crown. Enjoy her!
