Why choose Crown Princess?

One of the largest cruise companies in the world Princess cruises has a fine pedigree and enviable reputation for innovative, modern ships, comfortable cabins and exceptional service. The Crown Princess is one of the larger and modern additions to the sizeable fleet and offers passengers a quality experience.

Destinations and Itineraries

From July, the Crown Princess sails the seas of northern Europe and the Mediterranean on cruises that vary between eight and seventeen days. Departing and returning to Southampton, the Baltic Heritage Cruise takes in some of the most historic and beautiful capitals in northern Europe. After a day at sea the ship calls in at the Norwegian capital Oslo before moving on to Gothenburg in Sweden the next day. Another day at sea follows before the Crown Princess arrives at the Estonian capital Tallinn. Russia's second city of St Petersburg is the next destination where the ship stays for two days before moving on to the Finnish capital Helsinki and the Swedish capital Stockholm.

The next destination is Copenhagen before the ship heads south to the Belgian port of Zeebrugge, within easy reach of Bruges - often referred to as the Venice of the north. On day 15, the ship returns to Southampton. The Crown Princess sets off on a similar voyage in August, with a stop at the Polish port of Gdynia. Two Norwegian Fjords cruises are scheduled, departing from Southampton on August 10th and September 1st, taking in the rugged Norwegian landscape and making stops at remote communities that would otherwise be difficult to reach.

Until October the ship cruises the warmer waters of the Mediterranean on a series of cruises that last between five and 18 days, taking in ancient cities on the sea from Cadiz to Venice and Dubrovnik, with some cruises also stopping at the Greek islands.

In October the ship then crosses the Atlantic on a 28 day cruise that takes in the Canary Islands and Madeira, the Azores in the middle of the Atlantic, Portugal, Bermuda and finally arriving in Florida. For the rest of the winter the ship then cruises the Caribbean from its new home of Miami. Cruises last between 10 and 17 days and take in many of the exclusive island resorts that have made the Caribbean world-famous.

Cruise ship and facilities

The Crown Princess has capacity for 3,800 passengers, looked after by a crew of 1200 creating an impressive ration of one crew member for 3.2 passengers. Out of a total of 1,544 cabins, the majority have a balcony and a further 234 have an ocean view - there are another 431 inside cabins. All are reasonably sized, attractively decorated and well equipped with fridge, safe and TV. 24-hour room service is also available. For the long days at sea there are plenty of distractions - all suited to different levels of activity.

The Crown Princess has an extensive promenade deck, three outdoor pools - one with a sliding glass roof and beach-like surroundings - and no less than nine jacuzzis! Facilities include mini golf, a golf simulator, and a tennis court. There is a gym, aerobics classes for the active and an extensive spa offering alternative health therapies for the indulgent.

After a day of action or reflection, entertainment is provided in two show lounges. The Explorer Show Lounge stages cabaret style entertainment and the Princess Theatre is the venue for Broadway style spectaculars. Other evening distractions include a cinema, library and casino.

Typically for a ship of this size there are three main dining rooms on board and the food presentation and service are all described as being good. There are alternative dining options in two speciality restaurants, Sabatini's Trattoria and the Crown Grill for steak and seafood. Informal dining options are provided at the Horizon Court buffet and a pizzeria and a burger grill.

Dress code in the daytime is casual and comfortable. In the evenings, it's semi-formal. On the occasional formal nights the dress code is black tie for men and a cocktail dress for ladies. Princess Cruises have anticipated the needs of children too and the Crown Princess has a fully supervised children's centre for three to 17-year-olds including a doll house, play area, splash pool, a computer and video games room and teen discos.

This cruise line has packed nearly 50 years of know-how into the Crown Princess, one of the biggest ships in their fleet, and you’ll find quality accommodation and entertainment throughout the day. Whether you prefer the colder climes of the Baltic, the ancient cities of the Mediterranean, or the paradise islands of the Caribbean, this ship will be heading there this year. The Crown Princess may be cruise ship royalty but every passenger gets star treatment as well!

There’s a packed timetable of events onboard the Crown Princess and plenty to keep the whole family entertained. Children have got their own cool clubs and play areas to explore while adults will find plenty of relaxing areas to escape and unwind. In fact, despite her size, the Crown Princess has a small-ship feel, and there are plenty of separate areas to stop things feeling too crowded. At the heart of the Crown Princess is her stunning atrium and piazza. The vibrant piazza has all the charm of a European cobbled square and is filled with street entertainers, musicians and acrobats. One of the numerous cafes and bars lining the Piazza is the perfect spot to indulge in a few hours of everyone’s favourite past time, people watching.

Over half the Crown Princess’ staterooms come complete with a balcony, and each room is well designed with tasteful décor. Entry level accommodation is a touch on the compact side but includes everything you need for cruising holidays; ensuite with shower, twin or queen beds, premium bedding, TV, radio and telephone. Upgrade to a mini-suite and you’ll get the benefit of lots more space, including separate areas for sitting and sleeping.

The range and quality of food and drink onboard the Crown Princess is simply staggering. There are three main dining rooms serving everything upscale, from salmon and lobster to rack of lamb and beef tournedos. For occasions when you want to eat on the go there’s the 24-hour buffet and handy food courts, plus a host of seafood grills, steakhouses, bistros and snack bars. Princess Cruises have pioneered the revolutionary flexible dining, affording guests the choice of traditional fixed seating, casual, anytime and speciality dining for cruising holidays with added freedom.
