  3. Crown Princess
We chose this cruise because of a last minute promotion that made the trip very appealling especially considering that living in Florida reduced travelling costs significantly. This was our 17th cruise on Princess and app. our 70th cruise overall and we have found over the years that Princess provides the most consistent level of service in most of the categories that we value. We rate the service, atmosphere of the ship, cleanliness, food quality and variety, and entertainment as consistently above average. Other cruise lines, and we have been on almost all of them, may have a single category that rates higher, or may offer more benefits; but on balance Princess has more pluses in more categories than the other cruise lines. All cruise lines have their flaws, including Princess, and the high cost of excursions, somewhat limited entertainment and limited dining options highlight some of these flaws. But on value, and general enjoyment, Princess has to be given its just due. This particular cruise on the Crown Princess was extremely pleasant, with a wonderful service staff and a pleasant cruising population. The Crown Princess needs its scheduled dry-dock, but still remained a wonderful class ship well served by a great staff. Princess remains, in my mind, the most consistently reliable of the cruise lines and when you consider its high performance in most areas of customer interest, it is difficult to beat.

Consistent level of service, food quality and overall performance.

Cabin Review

Premium Balcony
Cabin B2
Typical cabin, but exceptional service. Storage space is more adequate then most cruise lines. In cabin entertainment, especially scheduled movies remains a plus as most cruise lines have limited viewing schedules. Room service remains a no-fee bonus and though limited is still a pleasure.
