Crown Princess

Princess Cruises, Crown Princess, Piazza Piazza Princess Cruises

The 3,082-passenger Crown Princess may be one of the largest ships in the Princess Cruises fleet, but it never really feels crowded. From the bustling three-story atrium to the variety of pools, bars, and restaurants, you'll be hard-pressed to see and do it all. The adults-only Sanctuary on Deck 17 comes at a price, but it’s well worth it to relax in the serene setting. Parents may never see their kids, who like to escape to their own separate sanctuaries. Dining venues include the traditional grand dining room, several casual spots, plus specialty options (for a fee), like the Crown Grill, focusing on steaks and seafood, and Sabatini’s, which offers Italian fare.

What We Love

The Piazza: The three-story atrium plaza is a hub of activity — with “street performers,” singers, and musicians — making it the perfect place to people-watch.  

Movies Under the Stars: Settle into a lounge chair, get cozy under a blanket, and enjoy some popcorn or milk and cookies as you take in a first-run movie on the enormous poolside LED screen. It’s as much fun as any drive-in.

Best Known For

Staying Busy: The sheer depth and breadth of programming, day and night, is almost exhausting. But there really is something for everyone every minute of the day, including lectures, karaoke, yoga classes, and wine tastings.

Kids Programs: From the pajama parties to the cool California Science Center workshops, the under-18 set will never be bored. In fact, they might ditch their parents as much as possible to hang out with their peers.

Who It's Best For

Multigenerational Groups: This ship literally has something to appeal to everyone in your group, from the excellent kids clubs to classes for the adults. There's plenty of room for spending time together, too.

Weddings at Sea: Don't be surprised if you see more than one bride; the ship is a popular wedding venue.

Don't Say We Didn't Warn You

Anticipate Upselling: The focus on add ons — from beverage packages to spa products — gets old fast.
