Good first cruise with Princess
Embarkation: San Francisco
Several things about Princess that we noticed: Many more smoking locations and smoking rules are abused (cigars and pipes are suppose to be limited to the smoking room, but were observed in all smoking areas. Far too may activity announcements were made. No enforcement formal nights for men, we would have expected at least a tie and jacket.
In view of the very busy schedule of cruise ships, especially on a ship that is 15 years old,there is continual maintenance going on. Sometimes this caused some inconvenience
especially on the Promenade deck for walkers.
Our general view was that this was a very good cruise, with an excellent crew, and a great way to see Hawaii. Less
Well located cabin in the middle of the ship. Although partially obscured, the small emergency rescue boat was in our view, so we really had a good oceanview cabin. Very comfortable sized cabin.
Grand Princess Mexican Riviera...
Exceeded our expectations
