I went on the Crown in October and while it was not a bad trip, I think I had set my expectations too high. I have been on Holland twice and the ships are not as large, but the service is excellent. I think I was also dissapointed in the food on Princess, it was good, just not great and I know that is a very touchy subject with most. I have been on Carnival, Celebrity, RCCL, HAL, MSC and Radisson. I have to go with Celebrity and Holland for service and food, but that is just my opinion. I do believe the larger the ship the less service and quality you get. I would still go on Princess again if the price is right and the itinerary is good, I loved the Movies under the stars, the cafe, the ship itself was beautiful and the crew was very nice.
