Went on the Crown Princess in July 2009 to France, Italty, Greece, and Turkey. Ended up in Venice. What a great cruise. Trip of a lifetime. so we did it again on the Carnival Magic, different itinerary though. Some where I read that Princess is owened by Carnival Corp, Nice piece of Trivia! Anyway nice ship the Crown Princess, looking forward to March 10, 2012 for a 14 day cruise on the Sapphire Princess, Always wanted to have a drink in the Sky Bar, I think thats what it is called. Well I'll get my chance come March. The cruise fever must be like the retirement fever--can't wait.
