  3. Crown Princess
Right time of year, very clean ship, dinning room too noisey and limited menu while they only offered a limited offering. Yhey tried top sell the up-grade menu from Crown Room - very tacky! Buffet selection and quality was excellent. State room was very nice, however shower too small and only had a fixed shower head not a hand held option. Seating in buffet was too limited and there was no encouraagement to share tables. Tables for 6+ only had one or ywo guests - a waste guests should be able to indicate they are willing to share. Several ports are "Carnival manufactured properties" which limites private vendors from providing exciursions (they claimed Carnival demanded 50% charge to go on property). This limites convienient access from local environments - bars, shop, resturants, etc. In some locations it is a mile plus walk just to get off the property. Also prices and shopping options expensive and not reflective of the country - one might as well stay on the ship. The least Carnival could offer would be a minimum charge or free shuttle to the town or at least the property entrance to give local vendors and guests an opportiunity to get away from these manufacture4de ports.

Very average, nothing exceptional, but worthwhile
