  3. Crown Princess
We have taken about 25 cruises, mostly with Princess and were getting a little tired of this cruise line but this one was probably the best. Mexico is not our favorite destination but very easy for us to do with only a 30 minute drive to the dock to embark. This was our first time on the Crown Princess and we were a little worried because it holds about 3600 passengers. Not to worry, we never had to wait in a line and everything was very well organized. ENTERTAINMENT Maybe because it was a New Year's Eve cruise, the entertainment was outstanding. Better than we see on the Crystal cruises. The Princess singers and dancers were very energetic an the costumes and sets were very good. A mentalist had us all befuddled and a Sammy Davis type singer/dancer was so good I went back for his second show. First time I ever did that. FOOD. You know you will get prime rib on the first night and turkey on the last night with Princess but everything we got was cooked just the way we ordered and the table service was very good. CABIN: We always try to get a mini-suite and this one was very well set up and our cabin attendant was super. OVERALL: We were about to give up on Princess but this cruise far exceeded our expectations and we already booked our 8th Alaskan cruise with them for this coming May.
