We booked this cruise because it worked for our schedule after a work trip was cancelled. We have cruised the West Coast before and it was our 2nd Princess cruise overall.

We drove in and arrived at the port around 11:15AM. Getting through the initial check in was seamless, very quick and efficient. Once we were through security, they had us wait in a holding area before we could board the ship. We finally boarded about 12:15.

We were able to go directly to our cabin, a mini-suite on the Dolphin deck, to drop off our bags. We then made our way to the Lido deck for lunch. The one thing that stood out to me was the small size of the buffet choices. I have been on many ships and this was probably the smallest variety of choices in the buffet areas that I've seen.

Cabin Review

The cabin was a great size, and quiet. It was in the forward part of the ship so not a lot of hallway noise. The balcony was completely open for those above to see so not much privacy but it was a large balcony.
