We got in on a drop and go and snagged a great suite. The entire experience exceeded all expectations even though we have sailed with Princess 8 times before and had high expectations. The medallion class cruising was lots of fun and I hope to sail on a medallion class again. The food on the Tegal is the best I’ve ever had on any cruise ship. If you can get in on the Chef’s table do it. It is SO worth the cover charge. We have done the chef’s twice before with Princess but the Lumiere experience on the Regal was like being royalty!! The shows were great. The Princess cast were Broadway class and one night there was a guest soprano. That was the best sow I have ever been to on a cruise, and ranks in the top three shows I have ever been to on Broadway. It was superb Read Less

This ship has the worst crew and the worst food. Stay away from MSC. I would recommend any cruise line over MSC. BCL, Celebrity, Royal Carribean, Princess, Carnival, Oceania, etc. Food is salty, listers quality possible. If you like bad pizza breakfast lunch and dinner along with hot dogs this cruise is for you! If you want the typical shrimp, lobster, escargot and smoked Salmon his cruise is not for you. Dining room service is rushed with absolutely no flexibility. If it’s not on the menu you will not get it. Everything is processed with salt solutions. Salads are soggy. Fish of the poorest quality along with 2 to 3 ml thick salted steak. Buffets are the same everyday! Tilapia, pizza hot dogs, terrible desserts. If food is important then don’t come on MSC! It’s rare to find a helpful person. Bar service is good but it’s hard to no get sick eating the food. It’s sad that MSCi so cheap when they have invested so much into the ship.entertainment was good but no bug name outside entertainment! No enrichment classes. Read Less

Terrable food! Horrible selection, poor quality, really disappointing. At Horizon court buffet the food display would have 20 different items to choose from, 7 of them were bread. The other 13 just were random items that did not go well together. Dinner in the main dining rooms was consistantly cold they had poor choices and served by a staff that always seemed inconvenienced. I have sailed a few times on princess and loved the ship's and staff. The Crown was a huge let down. They constantly tried to upsell us on dinners to speciality restaurants. The bartenders would daily charge our account for drinks even though we had the top drink package. The ship looked tired and used... the public areas were small and crowded. Our sailing was not filled to capacity, down approximately 600 guests, now I know why...the gym had unusually low ceilings, I could not run an a treadmill or elliptical because my head hit the ceiling. I'm 6'3, not the only person that had this issue. If you book a trip on the Crown make sure it is a really great deal, you dont get much for your money. Read Less

We have sailed with Princess twice now and are very pleased. We find the embarkation and disembarkation process easy and efficient. No complaints about anything on board. Crew are fantastic. Helpful in every way. Friendly and nice. The ship transformed from Fall to Christmas during our trip and it was fun to watch. Efficiency is amazing. Entertainment is high quality and something for everyone. Options to keep busy are plentiful. If you are board it is not because there is nothing to do. Food choices for everyone - fancy eaters and the burger & pizza folks. Rooms from interior to balcony to suites receive the same professional attention. Comfortable beds and pillows. You control the room temperature! Rewards for returning guests accumulate per cruise and length of trip. (Worth looking into!) We loved these ports and the excursions. Our favorite excursions this trip were the *Segway, swim and snorkel and the *BOSS underwater scooter! So much fun. I highly recommend Princess and this cruise. Read Less

Enjoyed the differences among the islands, from the deserts in Aruba and Bonaire to the lush greenery in Grenada and Dominica. Snorkeling excursions in Aruba, St. John and Dominica were great. Always like spending time at Princess Cay, too. Dinner at Sabatini's was amazing! Dining room food for dinner was always very good. Loved the International cafe or Horizon Court for a quick breakfast. The pub lunch was also very good. The ship's crew was excellent, very friendly and helpful everywhere on the ship. Embarkation and debarkation were very well organized. The choice of daily activities was plentiful and the entertainment at night was very good. The cruise director, Angela, and her staff (especially Song) were great! The Crown is a beautiful ship, well maintained and layer out so that it never feels crowded even with 3000+ passengers. There was seldom a long wait for elevators and always seats available for shows. All shore excursions were booked through Princess and we enjoyed them all. The debarkation excursion in Fort Lauderdale to Las Olas Blvd and the Intercoastal Waterway was very good. Read Less

From start to Finish, the cruise was wonderful. Embarkation and disembarkation went smoothly. The ship decor was what to be expected from a princess cruise line, the christmas decoration were festive. Entertainment shows were excellent! Make sure to go to the Magic show. the best show to see. the guess singers were excellent too. Didnt need to go any specialty restaurants. The food overall was good to very good compare to all the other reviews about the ships food. But I'd stay away from the Salty Dog Gill, I wasn't impress by the food there. The International Cafe is great to catch a quick bite and its free!! The premium balcony has the largest balcony in the balcony room catagories, half covered/half not. Wonderful to sit and enjoy morning breakfast and the blue blue ocean. Staterooms now have large 32" TVs and the most comfortable beds! Overall a very enjoyable relaxing cruise. Read Less

We have been using NCL for almost a decade, even had our wedding on Breakaway in 2015, but Escape is same class ship tuned down on interior design. Ship is simple design with no personally, practical floating hotel. We stayed in balcony room with a baby and toddler and it was OK, steward was OK, always busy and barely have time to anyone to talk. Management of the ship was an amazing crew, and anyone under was complete mess. Waiters in restaurants don't know what they doing and would screw up any simple order. Food in restaurants was OK, but buffet food is awful, minimum choices, a lot of cheap meat, no seafood or even NCL signature Norwegian lox. Specialties restaurant's food was amazing, and pricey and will make your wallet cry! In 14 days cruise we had only 2 free show After Midnight, Brat Pack, second one did not made any sense. Choir of Man show, is paid show with prefix dinner setting, was OK. We had one stop cancel due to 2 heliocopter lifts from the ship first two days with no explanation, and remaining stops were simple beach destinations. We end up spending more time on the ship due to cancelled stop, and there is nothing to do there. Kids sevice is ok for 3+ and for baby you have to pay $20 for 1 hour 50 min selected slot time. Overall experience of this cruise, is that NCL is cutting their cost by taking quality out of scope in any possible way they can. NCL becoming low class, no frills cruise line. Based off our last 14 day cruise, we are not coming back with NCL to cruise and will be looking for more classy company to cruise with. Read Less

My husband and I have traveled with princess many times and this was the least of our favorite. The food didn’t impress us and was served raw chicken one night. The casino had gotten new machine and they were working on them the whole time so that meant that a lot of machines weren’t running. They also replaced machines with too many of the same .so the variety wasn’t good. The room Stewart was wonderful and when ever we asked for something he was right there with it They were also changing the mail box to everyone’s cabin and while they did that we were with out a phone and tv in our room for 2 days.that was something else they were doing on the trip .something like this should be done while there are no passengers so it doesn’t affect passengers Boarding and disembarking was excellent but they told us that the ship wasn’t full 1200 less passengers so that could have been why Read Less

1st cruise with Princess and we had a hard time picking priorities! You can pick from numerous things to do to nothing but listening or reading books! Embarkation was fast and easy with about 45 min until on the ship. Our room was immaculate and we requested top sheets which were provided in timely manner. Room arranged so no one was disturbed at night with lights from the bathroom. Plenty of shelves and cabinets. Bedding was fabulous and slept very well every night. We put large TV to "Bridge Cam" and never needed flashlights. Hand washing stations were close to buffet and in hallways! We had breakfast in Buffet 3 times and dining room 3 times.One thing I noticed from walking thru the buffet was that the tables all had placemats , silverware and water glasses set for dinner! Enjoyed the relaxing dining room and the meals were excellent! I had to start skipping lunch so that I was hungry at dinner and that worked out great! (still gained 3lbs!) We had anytime dining and went early and never had to wait. The shows were different every night and very enjoyable. Movies under the Stars selection could use some better choices but that is personal taste! Formal nights we did see some men wearing black or dark jeans with dress shirts and ties, ladies in gowns, cocktail dresses, evening pantsuits, and mostly men in dark suits which all looked very handsome! Gave up on Zumba class as it was to fast! Skeet shooting was fun and International Cafe was a favorite! Tea Time was fun and held every sea day! Savories and sweats were all tasty and black tea was so good. Don't miss it! Never saw any happy hours.Deck parties and sailaways were lots of fun! St Thomas sailaway was" amazin" Can't wait to book again! Loved the "Love Boat Horn" Read Less
