  3. Crown Princess
We travel with Princess frequently and picked this cruise because we could celebrate our golden wedding anniversary during the cruise. The itinerary was similar to the cruise we took 10 years ago, with a few different stops. We did the traditional dining and had a wonderful time with the 3 other couples at our table. The ship was in great shape and we had upgraded to a full suite which was a wonderful experience. The food at the Crown Grill was fantastic. The food at the traditional dining was good, but the beef was not as tender as it has been on past cruises. Entertainment and activities were very good, especially the audience participation activities. The excursion packages were good - the one negative was that 3 days in a row the excursion ended at a time that did not allow us to eat at the early sitting of traditional dining. This could be fixed by either starting the excursion earlier or reducing the free time on the excursion. When you book the excursion prior to the cruise you do not have the times. We spent 3 days in Barcelona before getting on the ship - this was a great idea. We were well rested and in the right time zone before we embarked. This was our 5th Princess cruise and they are the best big ship cruise line in my opinion, especially for adults.

Great cruise to celebrate golden anniversary
