First, a little about us.  We are in our early 50's and were traveling with one other couple.  This was our fifth cruise, second cruise with Princess and our first trip to Europe.  I had been pretty active on our Cruise Critic Roll Call, and we had private tours planned in most every port. 

First of all, the Crown Princess is a beautiful ship, and as others have said, despite that fact that there were 3,200 passengers on board, the public areas never really felt crowded.  Our cabin (C614) was very nice (loved that extra large Caribe balcony!) and our room steward, Jadeah, did a terrific job. 

One of the first things people always ask is about the quality of the food.  Let me qualify my answer by saying that we are major "foodies."  We appreciate good food and we love to try new things.  We had traditional, late dining at a table for four.  Our waiter worked hard, and aside from some communication issues due to English being his second language, he did a good job.  The food itself was "OK."  Some of the things I tried were very good.  Most were fine.  Some were just not good.  Somehow, I still managed to leave each meal totally full.  J
