To get away from winter. My wish was to have warm weather, freedom from cooking, and other household chores. To have time and areas to relax and read and enjoy the ports and sea days. The weather made that difficult as the ship was usually rocking somewhat..walking was similar to being unbalanced. In ports the excursion in Mazatlan was mediocre and in Cabo changed from original dure to weather with no added or changed activites by operator. It was cold and windy, and made no use of the pools and little of the balcony. However, meeting different people made up for much of the above and sittng at different tables each night in dining room was exactly what I wanted..the people, meals and service. I also was totally happy to be able to sing in the Princess Choir the Saturday before disembarktion.The recreation staff was suberb, always happy and smiling. Our cabin steward was excellent and I felt the wait staff ot be helpful and friendly. I have another cruise coming up on Princess and look forward to bigger and better..and hopefully much nicer weather.

Lovely except for the weather in Los Angeles, to Mexico and 2 ports when there.
