This is probably one of the best websites I have ever browsed. Some of the information is a little outdated and not all ships are represented. However, in your case the Crown Princess is represented. This link has information about menus to all restaurants, the Princess Patter program, and photos.
Crown Princess - cruise ship profile and guide
I've sailed on the Crown before, I based on my experience I can assure you that you are in for a real treat. Enjoy.
