Wonderful ship, Wonderful experience

Sail Date: April 2012
Destination: Southern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)

this cruise was to the southern Carribbean
Embarkation was quick and well organized. Our cabin was ready at noon and our luggage arrived shortly afterwards.
The ship was clean and very well maintained.
Service throughout the ship was excellent. The entire crew actually were anxious to please. Upon arrival, we ate lunch at the buffet. Not only did the staff offer to carry our plates to our table, they served us our ice tea and constantly checked to see if we wanted a refill. The quality of the food at the buffet was surprisingly good. Our room steward was also wonderful.
We tried the optional restaurant Sabitini's and found it to be disappointing. I ordered a veal chop and it was dry and tasteless. The staff was anxious to please but the food just wasn't up to par. On the other hand, the food in the dining room was excellent. The menu had many good choices each night. Our Head Waiter, Alfonso was marvelous. His attention to detail made dining an enjoyable More experience.
The ports of Aruba and Curacao were interesting.
The 3 production shows were terrific. The singers and dancers were very talented.The scenery was not to be believed. The other shows were just so-so. The hypnotist, Ed Fernandez and the comedians were only fair. The cruise director, Lisa, did an excellent job. This cruise had 4 sea days and she made sure that there was entertainment throughout the ship during the sea days. It is a nice touch to listen to music in the Piazza and be able to dance during the daytime.
Debarkation was also quick and well organized. A great time was had by all! I highly recommend this ship. Less

Cabin review: Crown Princess E-219

Oceanview cabin E-219. Size was slightly larger than average. Limited drawer space but lots of closet space. Cabin was clean and bed was comfortable. Hallway was quiet during the evening.
