Crown princess an awkward ship. Tiered cabins horrible for those on lower balconies. But having a balcony is the only way to go if you like fresh air and a private space. Dining rooms were mediocre so stayed with the buffets which were amazing. Average BMI 50 so be forewarned. But good incentive to back away from the buffet. Difficult cruise to be on for seniors who are active and fit. Exceptional staff who for the most part were pleasant and helpful. Will bow out of automatic room gratuity in future and pay our steward and others directly. We payed full price which we knew we were doing but wanted a specific date itinerary and cabin so sucked it up. The whole cruise was nickel and dime you to death which can make you paranoid to spend after a while. Passenger policies not enforced so makes it awkward for those who are trying to play by the rules. Maybe we’re just not princess cruise people

Not for first timers

Lovely room for normal sized people, front of ship but little to no motion, very clean, great steward, quiet location, great hot showers, incredible beds, pillows and linens. Wonderful 8 hr sleep program on the tv
