I chose this cruise as it was Mexican Rivera. The itinerary was changed to give us less time in Cabo which was annoying as we had booked a tour with Princess that was a drive away from the city. Tour was rushed and not enough time was given to explore Cabo. Not worth the money. The food was average. I will say there was better choice in the Buffet and the food tasted better than the dining room. It was just finding a seat that was more difficult. We ordered room service breakfast one morning and it came stone cold. The staff were just putting in time. They were efficient but did not seem overly friendly. The Pub lunch was awful. I wanted to have an experience at the spa but you had to book and entire week package. All other spas I have been to, you can get access to the amenities if you book a treatment. When I suggested this I got a rude response. They need to have a day package where you can visit the enclave only. The entertainers throughout the ship were amazing. Activities were great. The highlight was spending time in the Sanctuary. Great staff and peaceful surroundings. Worth the small extra fee. The cabins were spacious. Nice bathtub. Very comfy beds. They need to pay attention to cleaning the balcony.

I had booked a Princess cruise for the British Isles before going on this Mexican cruise.

The itinerary is one I wanted but I don't think I will cruise with Princess after that one.
