How about a kind word for the Crown Princess (and by reference, the Regal)? I think both are superb vessels. Their most recent renovations have given them a certain "panache" in their public areas. The Crown's dining room is delightful as are many of her lounges. Also, cabins on both ships are roomy with lots of storage space... in most the walk-in closet arrangement leading to the bathroom makes them almost like a two room suite. We find, on the Crown, a lot of very senior staff in the Dining Room and elsewhere and it is reflected in the high levels of service on board. While we were on her last January, she was voted #1 in the Princess fleet internally. Really a nice ship giving a good cruise experience.
