Sunset from our balcony.

Princess continues to be our #1 or #2 out of six cruise lines. In no particular order, here’s why:

1. FOOD: (Thanks for Dairy-free and Gluten-free substitutes! )

DA VINCE DINING ROOM: I’ve never had so much delicious seafood available at every meal. The variety was terrific. Having salmon as a ‘standard’ in the Da Vinci dining room was a plus. Also, it was extraordinary to find that Princess (at least the Ruby) has brought back lobster tail to the main dining room (instead of restricting it to the specialty restaurants with $25+ cover charges). The steak used in Surf ’n Turf was the most tender ever.

Cabin Review

Mini-Suite with Balcony

Cabin MB

Quiet. Good-sized room. Two TVs! Bathtub (epsom salt baths every night after 2-3 hours of dancing!) Great location for accessing meals and entertainment.

Port Reviews

Seattle

Highly recommend EMP (Experience Music Program) at the Space Needle park.

Astoria, Oregon

What a surprise. Easy to take the 'train' downtown or to the Maritime Museum (which was fabulous). If there on a Sunday, for sure do the street market...unusual items for sale 'under the tents.'

Monterey

for sure visit the Monterey Bay Aquarium.

Victoria

The Natural History Museum (next to their Parliament building) is well worth a couple of hours.
