We've cruised over 23 times with Princess, but this was our (my husband and myself) first Mediterranean Cruise and Transatlantic crossing.
Positives: The ship is beautiful; everything is clean and new.
There were approx 4000 passengers on board but e ship never seemed crowded in the common areas. There was also plenty of deck chairs out by the pools,
We had a midship mini suite and it seemed a little roomier than those on other Princess ships. The 2 flat screen ths on the wall helped with extra space. The balcony was small but functional. We had a queen bed that was super comfortable.
