My wife and I had a great time on the cruise and were impressed by the Crown Princess, which is a lovely, well-maintained ship. This was our second cruise overall, but first with Princess. The crowd onboard was skewed older, with a lot of retirees and not many kids (which I suppose is pretty typical).
Our main complaint is that the food in the main dining room wasn't great. Perhaps we have been spoiled by NY restuarants, but the meals were average at best. As a result, we splurged on the premium restaurants with their $20+ cover charges and superior food and service.
On the at-sea days, we spent a lot of time lounging on the deck or in our room because the scheduled activities just weren't that appealing to us.
