Excellent, as always: Sapphire Princess Cruise Review by auntielala81
Overall Member Rating
Excellent, as always
Destination: Mexican Riviera
Embarkation: Los Angeles
Movies Under the Stars is a great addition to the Princess experience and the movies selected were great choices, although it was slightly chilly up top. It would be great to maybe have that same movie playing on the sets in the room at the same time too for those nights when it is too windy/cold to be up top for extended periods of time.
Food was great as always. I branched out and tried a few items I wouldn't typically order which is great to do on a More cruise since the food is included in the price you pay (unless of course you choose to visit one of the specialty restaurants for a surcharge, which we didn't). Less
Cabin review: A211
Its a fairly long walk down the hallway from the back elevators for dinner, but that is sort of a bonus when you factor in how much delicious, rich food you'll be eating. Nice to have to work some of it off.
Port and Shore Excursions
We decided to stay close to the ship and not bother with an excursion for such a short cruise. The little marketplace where the ship docks is pretty much exactly the same stuff you can purchase at any other port in Mexico. If you're a fan of brightly painted pottery pieces, tooled leather, sterling silver, vanilla (with distilled water as the first ingredient), or cheap meds, then Mexico is the place for you. I'm fairly sure everything for sale in Mexican tourist locations must come from the same factory somewhere since it genuinely is all the same stuff.
