New England itinerary and ports were fantastic. We took a ship excursion every day, and were extremely satisfied.
Having been on many cruises, the Crown Princess was disappointing. It is relatively new, 3000+ passengers, yet the rooms are much smaller than most ships that we have been on. Like the early 1980's ships, there was barely enough room to walk(sideways) around the cabin. I would suggest using the twin bed configuration rather than the double bed option.
Breakfast was terrible. Eggs tasted powered. French toast was just toast. Bacon was like eating toothpicks...if you could even chew it. Hash browns looked like fried cardboard, and tasted worse than cardboard. One omelet station for 3000 people! Cold cereal was good, if you could find milk. Lido staff was excellent, very helpful. Helped you find a seat in the very crowded Lido, and even carried your plates. Coffee, tea, and lemonade seemed to be a controlled substance. Despite having dispensers around, staff had to operate them.
Cabin was very small. Using the double bed configuration was not good, as the open space on upper walls housed the bunk beds. As a result you had to slide from the side into bed. Location of the cabin was good. Close to 2 elevator locations. Absolutely no exterior noise from upper, sides or outside. Lots of hanging clothes room and safe, but limited shelf storage. Beds had side tables with only drawers, but they were impossible to open. Had to pull very hard, but was difficult to do with bunk beds being very close.
