14 nights Europe-Medley Cruise on Crown Princess 22nd April 17. Having cruised with Princess a few times and on the Crown in 2013 the only difference that was noticeable was the pool side beds, much better than 2013, but the rest of the ship could do with a refit.The ship was so noisy, and juddery we had a balcony on Aloha deck 12 mid aft, the room shuddered , never had such a rotten cabin, don't remember it being like that before. Also the air con was so cold, quite a few passengers complained to each other, and to crew also said it was, dining room, theatre & horizon seemed to be worse. The Robbie Williams tribute act and Freddie Mercury one were excellent and Mick Miller and Jo Little comedians very good.We had William Roache (Ken Barlow} as guest speaker, and poor man the Bay of Biscay was rocking us about, he did so well and was very interesting. The disappointments about the cruise were the lack of entertainment on deck, the weather wasn't brilliant but they could have put on more movies or concerts on the screen when it was, instead of keep showing the blooming pictures of places with some boring music to accompany it. Also only a sail away party on deck the first day and last port of call, which everyone enjoyed, The menu in the Michael Angelo Anytime Dining Room was more like pub food , Southern Fried Chicken & chips, the chicken was also on the Horizon buffet at lunch time, Shepherds Pie in a small dish like the pubs do,Chicken pie well pie topper again in a dish, and an even stranger starter field leaf with shredded carrot and cherry tomatoes...well that was lettuce with one shred of finely grated carrot and a quarter of a cherry tomato!! Lamb shank was ordered but they didn't have enough ... well Beef ribs was just a stew really although tasty, Belly of pork. Ok you wont go hungry but the menu was not what we had come to enjoy from Princess, it was as if its a Brits cruise so mainly stick on the pub menu... Overall not the best cruise with Princess we have had.
