  3. Crown Princess
We have cruised over 30 times in the last 18 years, everything from crystal to carnival and really enjoyed this trip.The ship is beautiful in all respects,you wouldn't think it was 4 years old. All the public rooms were very clean and well maintained. overall very happy with the ship and the crew. ROOM: We had booked inside on deck 14 forward, very quiet and a great location for getting to the upper decks (pools, horizon court, spa etc.) It was a ride down to other decks but it was never a problem. DINING: We booked any time dining and ate at the Crown Grill twice, Sabatini's once and the Chefs Table once, the dining room was also very nice on the three times we went there. Over all the food was very good, even the buffet had its moments. The burgers etc. were very good out by the pool, and the pizza OH the pizza was the best, I could not stop eating it, just like NY, Boston thin crust... The Chefs Table was the best $150.00 I've ever spent on a ship. You must try to go on this dining trip with the head chef. Book as soon as you get on board, it is limited to about 24 guests only, you must book asap. The crown Grill, with George at the front desk taking care of us, was the highlight of our trip. Don't miss this dining thrill. SHOWS: Very good, some of the best we have seen on board,no complaints. We did use the sanctuary on about 3 days, it was great, very secluded and plush would do it again. CASINO: One word, STINKS,the smoke is unbeliveble, could not spend more than two minutes in that place and I was a smoker for 33 years...Stop the smoking. HOT TUBS: Make them HOT, then you won't have 5 people sit in the same tub for 2.5 hours at a time, and the kids won't sit in them for 7.5 hours a day. Overall, great ship, great crew, will go again.

Best cruise in a long time,great service,great ship.
