We just returned from a fabulous cruise onboard the Crown Princess. This is the newest ship from the Princess Fleet and it is Beautiful. The grand atrium is truly spectacular with its multi leveled ornate staircases and beautiful decor. If you like to swim - there are several pools of varying sizes situated all over the ship. The entertainment was over all excellent - from the large scale shows in the Princess Theatre to the more intimate bands, musicians located in the several smaller lounges. This cruise started off in New York and had 3 full days at sea and the cruise had plenty to do to occupy our time. Unfortunately - as we departed New York, a large storm frony was coming across the Eastern states - causing extremely rough seas. Thankfully no one in our party was bothered by the rocking and rolling of this huge ship. The food was very good with a bountiful selection of fresh fruit - especially the pineapple!! We were able to enjoy the Movies under the stars - but I am undecided if I prefer the covered pool (the Star Princess has one), or the Movies under the STARS. The ports of call were beautiful and we only encountered lovely people in all of the ports (St. Thomas, Dominica, Antigua, St. Kitts, and San Juan).As this was a repositioning cruise, we had 3 days at sea, and in the future I think 2 days at sea would be plenty. Overall this was a wonderful cruise and We totally enjoyed the experience.
