Additional details

Sail Date: Mar 2014

Just got back from a 4 day costal cruise (LA, Catalina, Ensenada) Boy has the cruising industry changed. 3rd trip on Princess, 9 cruises over 35 years.

I once thought Princess was the best line I had been on. I'm now rethinking that.

In Fairness Not the worst cruise I have ever been on, but that cruise line is now gone.

Cabin Review

Room was comfortable, balcony was private but small, Lower level balconies were larger, but less private as they could be seen from above.Beds were like bricks. they really need new mattresses.Stewart was helpful, but not extra special.

Port Reviews

Catalina Island (California)

Small, not much to see or do if you don't do an excursion.


Dirty, Long walk from ship. typical Mexico.
