  3. Crown Princess
This was our first time cruising on Princess. It was only a one day drive from Phoenix; we parked next to the ship and were on into our cabin in less than an hour. The only problem was we read the literature and didn't arrive until "our scheduled embarkation time." We will never do that again. We were one of the last to board and almost missed lunch because of the evacuation drill training. We had a large balcony suite which was great for morning breakfast or dinner. There are two different size balconies. It's best to get the larger but they are only available on two levels of the ship. Open dining was great. We met two other couples and took turns getting into the dinner line early, then having our "new family" join us at the same table for dinner. Excursions were great, especially the whale watching in Cabo. Food and entertainment were exceptional. We will definitely travel with Princess again.
