  3. Royal Princess
Chose cruise because of the location of stops and Princess's reputation. This was my fifth trip with Princess. The ship was great looking, with very modern decor. However, appeared to be too large (too many people on board) for Princess to manage properly. Too much disorganization and confusion. Too much waiting in lines (getting on and off ship, plus use of facilities onboard). Food not very good---especially the premium dining such as Crown Grill. The steak was a horrible disappointment and the comfort of eating like eating in a bar. I would have been more at home in tee shirt and jeans. Definitely not worth the extra $29 per person extra cost. I had anytime dining. Big mistake. Should have been called "When Available" dining. Had to wait one to two hours to be seated after appearing at dining room. Food in dining room not as good (fresh tasting) as food in buffet or other places on ship; such as hamburger grill, etc.

Not up to Princess standards.
