Mexican Riviera on Sapphire Princess

Sail Date: February 2010
Destination: Mexican Riviera
Embarkation: Los Angeles
We enjoyed the entire week on our first Princess cruise. Our favorite days are the "at sea" days and chose this cruise because of the 3 "at sea" days. We haven't cruised for 8 years but only cruised Carnival and RCCL.

The food was much better on the Sapphire. The food was as good or better than we have had in 5 star all-inclusive resorts. We ate at the horizon buffet for breakfast and lunch and had late seating in the International Dining Room. We enjoyed eating with the same people each night. The ship was exceptionally clean and we loved our mini-suite with balcony. The balcony wasn't covered, but that wasn't a problem for us.

The covered pool was great on the day back to San Pedro since it was windy and cool. Loved the fresh water pools and the "motion pool". The desserts at dinner were delicious! I only drink coffee for breakfast, but with cream and sweetener I thought it was o.k. My husband got a coffee card, but you can't get the brewed coffee with room service More or in the dining room. Coffee, iced tea and lemonade are available in the horizon court.

We enjoyed the entertainment at night, too. The alcoholic drinks were reasonably priced. There were people of all ages which made for an interesting cruise.

We chose to carry our luggage off of the ship and what a speedy disembarkation! T We were at LAX by 9:00. We wish we had chosen an earlier flight. We will definitely be cruising with Princess again! Less

Cabin review: ABD320

We had a mini-suite with a balcony--extremely quiet, lots of closet and drawer space. Loved the shower and bathtub.

Port and Shore Excursions

We took a whale watching trip and loved it! Just wished we would have had more time in Cabo.

We took a taxi to town and shopped since this was our first time here.
