  3. Crown Princess
Itinerary (1-stop at Los Cabos), duration 5 nights, bargain pricing on mini suites (larger staterooms with modest sized balcony that most everyone above & beside you can see clearly) Ship thought about 10 years old appeared to be well maintained and clean. Cabin, meal service & bar staff were most friendly, cordial, professional & accommodating. Food served & selections available in all venues was marginal to terrible though it did improve dramatically the last 1 1/2 or 2 days. Who would order Steak in the Italian Specialty restaurant??? Absolutely as tough as shoe leather BUT well seasoned. Felt Carnival Corp./Princess Cruise Lines was guilty of blatant false advertising for advertising and not delivering multiple 'suite' benefits. Entertainment, Enrichment & Activities were OK in some cases, sadly lacking in most. Captain, Officers & Staff all seemed to genuinely appreciate that we passengers were aboard. (imho) they really should. This experience did not make us wish to consider booking additional Princess Cruises. We also feel that the Captain's Circle is of minimal benefit though the '150 no charge internet minutes' (soon competition will make this unlimited & free for all passengers-are you aware of this RCI, Celebrity, Azamara?) were much appreciated and the Captain's Cocktail Party was quite nice.

Cabin Review

Cabin D214
Comfortable, Queen size bed. Nice to have semi separate relaxing area. On line requests included robes and feather pillows, Though the stateroom attendant and assistant seemed EXCELLENT, it took two of 5 days to get the pillows & we never did get the robes (they couldn't find the belts-ridiculous). Well at least the room was refreshed, cleaned, ice checked, and towels changed twice daily.
