We did Eastern Caribbean in January as well.
Loved the entire experience. The ship is HUGE and there are alot of people on board. I think Princess did a terrific job of masking this. Very enjoyable trip, we prebooked an open ended deposit for a future cruise which we are now taking in Sept 06. We were on a very low deck and wished we had been up higher, but otherwise found the stateroom to be very well laid out. We splurged on a balcony on Aloha for our next trip (on the new Crown, sister to Caribbean).
