If you want to cruise in style, then Crown Princess is a real jewel in the Princess Cruises fleet. At the heart of the ship is an atrium styled like an Italian piazza with places to eat, drink, relax and watch the world go by.
Up on deck you'll find a choice of shimmering pools, an adult-only sundeck called The Sanctuary as well as a 9-hole putting green and sports court. Add to this an array of fabulous dining options, high calibre entertainment and pure indulgence at the Lotus Spa and you can see she has all the ingredients for the perfect cruise holiday.

Dining on Crown Princess
Dining on this cruise ship is likely to be an unforgettable gourmet experience since her chefs have all been inducted into the prestigious Chaînes de Rôtisseurs.
In the Michelangelo Dining Room you'll have a set time for dinner, share a table with fellow guests and enjoy attentive service from your personal waiter for the length of your cruise. Alternatively, opt for Anytime Dining where your mealtimes are flexible, the choice of restaurants excellent and the menus varied and delectable.
Your cruise ship also has a choice of two reservations-only Speciality restaurants where the extra cover charge is well worth paying. Choose from and eight course extravaganza at Sabatini's Italian Trattoria or sensational seafood and steaks at the Sterling Steakhouse.
If you prefer a more laid back atmosphere, there's plenty of casual dining options too - from the Caribbean style Café Caribe, to a poolside pizzeria and hamburger grill.
