  3. Caribbean Princess
Have used princess on several occasions on repositionings instead of flying. Fact that I live in Houston made it very convenient eliminating flying. Room was as expected and itenerary was interesting including stops in Liverpool, Holyhead and Germany stops not previously visited. Biggest issue was I prefer smaller ships and Carribbean Princess is very large. There was an over abundance of elite passengers, services were stretched to the max and there was an air of privilege with many of them making items such as trivia and show contentious at best. Not sure what was going on behind the scenes but crew seemed to be doing what they could to deal with the situation. Food was as expected, however, the specialty restaurant Crown Grill was on all three occasions underwhelming. Lobster was too salty and staff indicating it wasn't their issue. Going forward given that Princess has stopped servicing Houston that opens up more options since must fly to either coast anyway.
