Crown Princess Food
Princess cruises are known for delicious gourmet dining options - the entire fleet has been inducted into the Chaine des Rotisseurs gastronomic society. Delectable meals and first-class service provide passengers with an unforgettable dining experience after every meal. The three main dining rooms serve classic entrees and a five-course dinner, and passengers can choose between traditional fixed seating or anytime dining. Sabatini's Italian Restaurant and the Crown Grill are the ship's specialty restaurants, and they offer an extra special dining experience for a cover charge. Passengers can also enjoy a private gourmet meal on their stateroom balcony for $100 per passenger. The ship's buffet and the Cafe Caribe offer 24-hour service. Wine and seafood is available at Vines. A traditional afternoon tea is served each day.
Crown Princess Staterooms
Oceanview cabins onboard Princess cruises are surprisingly affordable. Crown Princess offers a unique cabin layout in standard staterooms that feels especially roomy. Every stateroom includes a bathroom with shower, queen bed that converts to two twins, small sofas, desk and vanity, flat-screen TV, private safe, and mini refrigerator for storing snacks and drinks. A step up from standard without the hefty suite price tag is the mini-suite, which offers extra space, separate living areas with full-sized couches, and bathtubs. Full suites include sitting area, DVD and mp3 players, complementary laundry and drying cleaning services, and upgraded bathrooms.
