...Please...... "We can't think of any passenger "demographic" that wouldn't find something to love on Crown Princess. On our trip, there were seniors, families, gay and lesbian travelers, honeymooners, and friends-and-family groups. The only folks who might find the ship's size a hindrance would be single travelers -- because of its size and its passenger capacity it can be hard to meet people." She is 113,000-ton cruise ship .

You actually asked "What Nationalities" use the ship. As you can imagine, the ship is open to ANY nationality that wants to book that particular cruise from their own country. However, obviously the port of embarkation will have a big influence on what the MAIN nationalities will be. I have just read a report that reports a lot of Spanish and Italian families on a RCI cruise from Barcelona. Exactly what you would expect. The same as you would expect a lot of Americans on a cruise sailing from Miami, or Brits on a Cruise leaving Southampton. We once cruised on a NCL ship sailing from Puerto Rico. Guess what that cruise had a lot of on? All you want to know about any ship will be detailed on the cruise company website or in their cruise brochures for future reference. Happy cruising.

Just a quick note to add to above. My answer was aimed specifically at the Crown Princess, which of course is owned by an American company (British until recently), so caters mainly to english speaking clients, in the same way that osta and MSC Cruises cater mainly for Italians. I hope that this helps a little?

All Aboard The Caribbean Princess

By Pippa Hayden

So last week was a pretty busy week for me. Living up in Lossiemouth I had a training course in Glasgow on Wednesday and a training course in Edinburgh on Thursday but the highlight of my week has to have been my Ship visit onboard the Caribbean Princess. She was in port in Invergordon for the day whilst on her 12 night British Isles itinerary so I took the chance to hop onboard and see what she had to offer.When I arrived I was greeted in the Piazza by John from Princess Cruise and some othe...

Lovely Eclipse Weekend

I have just had a fantastic 2 night cruise on the wonderful Eclipse.The mini cruise was part of my month long 40th Celebrations and was a little getaway for me and my partner. It is the first time in 14 years that we have been away without the children and although we missed them we had such a great few days.We started the break by heading down to Southampton, which is a bit of a trek from Barrow-in-Furness but I find it no problem by rail. I would recommend staying over in Southampton the ...

Silversea was not meant to be!

By Barbara Hopley

Barbara Hopley's blog

On Monday 22 May I was booked to go on a ship visit of the ‘Silver Whisper’ by Silversea Cruises. We get invited to see ships all the time but do them on our days off as too busy to take time out of a working week. That’s how dedicated I am to see as many ships as possible as so much easier to sell when you have seen them.I had been looking forward to seeing this ship as have never seen a Silversea ship, it had been booked for a few weeks and I made my arrangements at home ...
