When I noticed on the Internet that Princess was sailing from San Francisco, I knew I wanted to be on one if their ships. The fact that Sea Princess is one of their smaller ones was even more appealing.
When I boarded the ship, I was pleasantly surprised by the total atmosphere of the public areas. While busy with the rush of people boarding, the atrium was still a roomy area that never felt crowded.
My first stop was my stateroom, located on the starboard side near the front with an ocean view window that was not a large one, but the right size for viewing. Being a single traveler, I never felt jammed into a small space or crammed into the shower or bathroom space.
My cabin was sufficient for my needs. The closet and shelf space was ample and the bathroom and stateroom were roomy enough for me. I was a single, so the fact that there was only one chair in the room was okay with me. The flat-screen TV was great for relaxation, and the desk was my "clutter space". The only sound I heard was the rush of the ocean outside when the sea was a little rough, but it was calming and not disturbing.
