This was an amazing cruise. Perfect for a first time cruise or limited time available. This ship has been updated with the new medallion program. Which makes your moving around the ship so much easier. The nicest part was the crew used your name and the cabin door unlocked for you when you came up to the door.

Our first port of call was Catalina. This is a tendered port. If you have not used a tender it is a small boat that took you to shore. We did not go over until after lunch and at that time it started to rain. The Princess crew offered hot chocolate and towels for that wet guests later in the day. Such an nice return!

Dining because we were on the 15th deck right under the Horizon buffet we ate there every morning for breakfast. My advise walk around and see what they have before plating. It made it so much easier to know what we wanted without wasting a lot of food. Again creature of habits we like Concerto Dining Room and the amazing food for dinner we ate there every night. The staff's recommendations were always right on.

Cabin Review

Balcony

We had 2 twin beds in the room. The only issue that we had with the cabin is my son kept hitting the desk or night table. He was not used to a twin bed. The only real suggestion if possible look for a cabin on the side that would have the land vs out to see though.
