We chose this cruise because it began and ended in San Francisco, which is only about an hours drive from our home. It was our first long cruise, and Princess Cruises kept us informed on line through their website of all that we needed. We were informed in detail of our identification requirements, suggests on packing and made us fully aware of what to expect. It was more than we expected. Food was award winning, and the dining room service was an experience in itself.. Dining rooms, including the ever popular buffet, were orderly and well decorated.. Our Room steward was exceptional. He serviced every detail and always said Hello and Have a nice dinner, or breakfast. On one particular rocky evening, I heard him call out to me by name to hold the railing. Entertainment was varied and current. Lectures were informative. If there is a complaint it is that there weren't enough hours in the day to do all you would like to.

Full service vacation

Cabin Review

Balcony
Cabin BB C535
The balcony stateroom was a good choice. I loved watching the waves and to see and hear the changes in the weather.
