Crown Princess Review

Review of Crown Princess

The 2006-built Crown Princess is the 7th Grand-class Princess Cruises ship, together with Caribbean, Diamond, Golden (Pacific Adventure), GrandEmerald, Ruby, Star (Pacific Encounter) and Sapphire.

The vessel (IMO number 9293399) is currently Bermuda-flagged (MMSI 310500000) and registered in Hamilton.

History - construction and ownership

Princess Cruises is a US passenger shipping company headquartered in Beverly Hills CA. A former subsidiary of P&O Princess Cruises (1977-founded), in 2003, the company merged with Carnival Corporation - the world's largest passenger shipping company. Among Princess Cruises assets is the Caribbean private island resort Princess Cays (on Bahamas Eleuthera Island's southern end), located approx 80 km (50 mi) from Nassau.

Crown Princess cruise ship

The 3100-passenger ship Crown Princess aims to showcase everything which has come to define the cruise line. This is quintessential Princess with marquee facilities: Movies Under the Stars, a poolside big-screen theater represented on Caribbean Princess cruise ship (and since nicked by just about everyone in the sphere); the bustling, 3-deck Piazza, a combination bakery, Internet cafe, wine/sushi/tapas bar and performance facility; the Sanctuary which is only for adults, a mostly shaded top-vessel retreat with thick, plush loungers, massage cabanas and a spa menu; and Princess' signature duo of specialty dining venues, the Crown Grill (steaks, chops and seafood) and Sabatini's (Italian multi-course repast).

Decks and Cabins

Most Crown Princess staterooms (1531 total, in 33 grades) are 170-ft2 balcony cabins (677). Almost 80% of the ship's outside accommodations have private step-out balconies. Wheelchair-accessible cabins are 31. The largest accommodations are the Balcony Suites (410 ft2 / 38 m2, with terrace sized 180 ft2 / 17 m2).

The boat has 18 decks, of which 15 are passenger-accessible and 9 with cabins.

Shipboard dining options - Food and Drinks

Crown Princess features three dining rooms, all offering tasteful, Caribbean-themed menu.
