We love Princess Cruise Line and especially being able to sail from a port near our home. It was so easy getting aboard; everything went so smoothly and the ship was as ready to have us aboard as we were to embark. Our bags were delivered to our door almost as soon as we got to the room so we were unpacked and ready to explore even before the Life Review. Leaving the SF Bay and getting out in the Pacific waters we experienced a bit of rough seas but our Capitan's Team had things under control and of course the entire staff on board were great and used to the tilting of the ship. Our sail from SF to the Islands was 4 days but with all the things to do on board those days, evenings and nights were filled with lots of good things to keep us busy and entertained. The dining was great with friendly and gracious wait-staff. We chose anytime dining and enjoyed being seated with many different people, exchanging entertaining dinner conversation with a wide variety of folks from the US and England as well. We had chosen our tours ahead of time from the descriptions on line and we were not disappointed. Princess had taken care of the hard part of getting to our tour. Although it was the rainy season in Hawaii, we lucked out in not only NOT having rain but to having sunshine every day. We enjoy very much our days with Princess and their choice of staff and entertainers. This was our 15th cruise with Princess and we always feel welcomed and at home during our days afloat. We are looking forward to our next adventure with a Princess cruise!

Cabin Review

Balcony
Cabin BC B - 515
Our cabin was pretty standard but clean and inviting. We had a balcony with curtains and drapes we could open wide to let the view of the sea and sky and we like to keep them that way during the day. Sometime we would stay on our balcony soaking up the streaming sun and breathing the fresh ocean air.
