One of the days I need to learn how to relax.

I dreaded writing this, but now is not a good time to cruise with Princess.

Staffing is a major challenge.......and it's not that people don't want to work, it's that Princess is keeping it's purse-strings tightly closed. They are clearly shorthanded, and the crew they have are trying their best, but are clearly overworked.

We were told that at times, the galley crew were getting breaks or personal meals.

Port Reviews

San Diego

We walked around town....lovely.

Santa Barbara

We took the free shuttle to the middle of town, and leisurely walked back to the ship while doing a bit of shopping.


A waste of time.....stay on board.


Beautiful port with many wonderful places within walking distance.

Astoria, Oregon

Lovely small town...easy to walk. Friendly locals.
