We would like to start out by saying this is our 27th cruise and the 1st time on Princess cruise Lines and won't be our last, We already booked a cruise with Princess July 2012 out of Southampton, United Kingdom for 12 days.

Our cruise started out on embarkation day a little confused for some reason Princess was not well staffed for crowd control which at times can be expected, once we got our sail and sign card everything went well. Our stateroom was cleaned and well stocked on everyday of our cruise; the cabin steward was very good and did his job well. In which we were surprised to see. We couldn't believe how good the food was in the buffet with a variety to eat, to those who know how we feel about loud music while eating, the music was perfect not loud and no rock and roll!!!! The entertainment was very good from the Showtime to Trivia games.

The comedian Mr. Cary Long was on board from the Jay Leno tonight show for the first half on the cruise his shows were packed for every performance, along with Mr. Ray Coussins former Pianist for Mr. Frank Sinatra with stories and music with his time playing for Mr.Sinatra, and on the last day of the cruise Mr. Coussins put on one heck of a show. (A Must See). The Big Screen for Movies all week were very good to watch and eat popcorn under the stars.

We would like to mention our day in Mahogany Bay, Roatan Honduras, Carnival Corp. really did a great job in building a new dock for all their cruise lines to dock, The beach is right there with shops, a watering hole and facilities to enjoy your beach day, This is a setting for a very relaxing day at the beach..

To mention a few things about the Crown Princess. The ship has a great decor through out the ship, very clean and well maintained by the crew, 4 pools and a small pool for kids. The adult pool is at the Aft section of the ship and very quiet with it's own bar, but if you really wanted to be relaxed and comfortable for a small fee of $10.00 for 4 hours or $20.00 for 8 hours per person, try the Sanctuary for adults only in the very front of the ship above the Spa area.

On disemkation day, We found that Princess is fast and organized.

After 27 cruises we think we finally found a cruise line that offer alot for the money you pay and caters to all ages.

We had a great time and we are looking forward cruising with Princess.

I mentioned We a lot, WE is my partner in life, Jackie & I..... F.Y.I.

Happy Cruising


P.S. Thanks to who reply to my questions about the Crown Princess, Everyone was right, We had a Good Time.....

Great review Scalise - I'm so glad you enjoyed your first Princess cruise and plan on sailing with Princess again. We took our 1st Princess cruise last October and were also very impressed with it and plan on sailing with them again.
