Green Valley River Casino in Las Vegas offered a free cruise to their "high rollers". My wife & I always wanted to see some of the sights along the California coastline. San Diego, San Francisco, Monterrey/Carmel, & Ensenada, Mexico were the featured stops on this 7-day cruise.
Unfortunately, the 8-foot swells would not let any of the passengers off the ship's tenders at Monterrey/Carmel, so Princess Cruises let us stay an extra day in San Diego. This permitted us to leave the ship at anytime during the 36 hour stay.
Sights we visited: Alcatraz Island, Fisherman's Wharf, San Diego Zoo, USS Midway Museum, and La Bufferaro in Ensenada, Mexico.
Clean as a whistle! Excellent cabin steward (Lino). Room was plenty for just the two of us. Bathrooms as expected were small.
Cancelled due to 8 foot waves
