I had taken Princess 15 years prior (Sea Princess) to this most recent cruise on the Crown Princess. I was stunned by how much Princess has slipped in service, food, and experience since then. I made a list of the positives and negatives of our experience, I'll share them below.
* We had asked for some items to be in the room ahead of time that were not there and required multiple calls to resolve; distilled water (for medical device), extra pillows, and no feather pillows.
Nice town to walk around in
Just got on the ship here, standard port.
The beaches in Aruba are fantastic. We rented a car for $75 (included insurance) and beach bummed it all day at Arashi Beach (rented chairs and an umbrella for a few bucks). At night we went to our favorite restaurant, Papiamento.
