Crown Princess Review
About This Ship
Cruise Ship Overview
Launched in 2006, Crown Princess is one of the line’s largest ships and follows Princess Cruises’ plan of “evolution” not “revolution” in ship design. She featured the most popular elements of previous vessels in the fleet and introduced The Sanctuary, a successful adults-only retreat, and street performances in the Italian-inspired Piazza atrium.
With dramatic atriums and Skywalker's Disco (the spoiler hovering 150 feet above the stern), Caribbean Princess is a supersize version of the older Grand-class vessels with an extra deck of passenger accommodations. Not quite identical to Caribbean Princess, the younger ships in the class,Crown, Emerald, and Ruby Princess have introduced more dining options. Several signature public spaces have been redesigned or relocated on these ships as well—the atrium on Crown, Emerald, and Ruby Princess resembles an open piazza and sidewalk café; Sabatini's Italian Trattoria is found on a top deck with views on three sides and alfresco dining; and Skywalker's Disco is forward near the funnel (where it's topped with a sports court). Inside spaces on all three vessels are quietly neutral, with touches of glamour in the sweeping staircases and marble-floor atriums. Surprising intimacy is achieved by the number of public rooms and restaurants that swallow up passengers.
