As you'd expect from the name, Crown Princess is a royal treat of a ship with long, spacious decks and stunning, carefully decorated interiors.
The prestigious Crown Princess can easily be compared to several others of the classy Princess fleet, including the Golden Princess and Star Princess. However, due to the larger size of the ship with additional decks and cabins, the only comparison is the equally grand Caribbean Princess. In addition,Crown Princess had a multi-million pound refurbishment in 2018, giving guests greater onboard entertainment with new venues, greater comfort with uniquely designed beds and the introduction of 'Club Class' mini-suites.
The Crown Princess is renowned for excellent Caribbean cruises from New York, and cultured European cruises from Southampton.
Princess Cruises have plans to enhance the onboard experience for passengers in November 2018, when revolutionary technology known as Ocean Medallions will be introduced to the ship.
If it's sophisticated dining you want, then you've come to the right ship. There are three main dining rooms onboard Crown Princess and two speciality restaurants, which really gives you a large amount of choice for dining. The Michelangelo Dining Room is the place to be for a cosy evening meal with its delectable cuisine and efficient staff. For a more relaxed eating experience, you'll be more comfortable in the Botticelli Dining Room where booking isn't necessary.
Before or after your meal, drinks are also a must on this calming, prestigious cruise ship. The Wheelhouse Bar is a great meeting point to chat and enjoy the soft atmosphere with your favourite tipple. It's also a good place to finish the day with a nightcap. If you're looking for something a little more lively, the Skywalkers Nightclub is where the crowd gathers to dance, while the Explorers Lounge is the best spot for drinks in a more bustling and social environment.
