Some friends decided on a cruise based on ports of call and price. This year, Crown Princess won out with ports of Curacao, Aruba and Bonnaire. Overall, a pretty good cruise. Princess is good but not really exceptional. Overall, quite satisfied and good value. I would return to Princess but it is not my preferred cruise line.
The service in the dining room was good, as was the food. The cabin cleaning crew was excellent, refreshing our room regularly. Entertainment, namely, the singers, dancers and musicians and comedians, was excellent, possibly best from any cruise that I had been on.
Like so many other cruises, there never seemed to be enough lounges by the pool area. The music around the pool was sometimes too loud for reading or talking or snoozing. The disk jockey was very good and offered to play requests.
The embarkation was very quick, as was the dis-embarkation.
