Sail Date: Nov 2019
Cabin: Mini-Suite with Balcony

We enjoyed a great 10-night cruise on the Crown Princess to the Eastern Caribbean. There were three couples travelling together (3 sisters + husbands). We had Club Class minisuites, deck 9, rooms D421, D423, D425. The rooms were near the stairs and elevators, but there was no noise or additional commotion associated with the location.

Our airport transfer to the ship had an inordinate wait time (45 minutes) as there was some trouble with the bus. Embarkation was a breeze once we arrived from the airport. It's a very well-run process. Our bags were delivered timely to our rooms.

We really enjoy Club Class, having experienced it on our last cruise in December 2018. Not having to wait for a table at dinner is very nice. Our wait staff in the dining room was superb. They called us by name at every meal and remembered our preferences. One member of our party must be gluten-free and the wait staff and chef were more than accommodating. The food was the best I've had on a cruise. Princess had a chef in the dining room preparing special appetizers/mains/desserts every night: a really nice touch. The prime rib served on the first night was deemed the best ever had by several in our party.

Mini-Suite with Balcony

We enjoyed a great 10-night cruise on the Crown Princess to the Eastern Caribbean. There were three couples travelling together (3 sisters + husbands). We had Club Class minisuites, deck 9, rooms D421, D423, D425. The rooms were near the stairs and elevators, but there was no noise or additional commotion associated with the location.

Our cabin was a typical minisuite on a Princess ship. The only bad thing was the couch, which was uncomfortable and worn/tired. Our steward did a fine job. My sisters had a different steward who made towels into animals and squeegied the glass on the balcony daily (ours didn't do this). The hand rails on our balcony were worn and half of the varnish had chipped off - unsightly and rough. The bed was very comfortable. I wish there had been an electrical outlet on my side of the bed as I had on the Royal Princess last year.
