Cabin: Balcony

We had not been to several ports in this itinerary, so we thought it was a good choice. The ship is a little dated ie: shower very small with curtain as opposed to other ships with door to the shower. The cabin and balcony were a good size, except that there was no couch and just one chair to sit on. The two specialty restaurants were very good. The service and food was exceptional. The regular dining rooms (3) were also very good.

The medallion technology was great also. When you walk up to your cabin the door unlocks. You can also order food and drink anywhere on the ship and the waitstaff will find you. We were impressed with that feature.

We were not impressed though with the Salty Dog 24 hour burgers, tacos and hot dogs. The two times we tried them, the food was cold.

Port Reviews


We choose this Princess cruise because it went to San Francisco, San Diego and Ensenada.

We did a winery tour sponsored by the ship, in Ensenada

and if was great. Our tour guide, Hilce, was phenomenal. We enjoyed the tour and the wine tastings.

San Diego

San Diego was also a great port. We did the hop on hop off tour and our driver was exceptional. He played music relating to each stop and was also very funny. Old Town was great and the food at Coyote Café was very good.

San Francisco

We were in San Fran for two days and loved it. The first we had a relative from the area drive us around and gave us a great feel for the area. We did a cable car ride, ate at Fisherman's Wharf and went to Lombard Street and then toured most of the the area. On the second day we did the Alcatraz tour which was very interesting.
