We have been on this Mexico cruise, as well as the SF to Hawaii cruise and SF to Alaska several times. We love it because we live in the Bay Area, and it sails back and forth from SF. This time we just wanted to relax, so we loved all the sea days. We always have a balcony, and usually order coffee in our cabin in the morning. I felt completely spoiled with all the great service. The food was wonderful. We had the champagne brunch on our balcony, while anchored in Cabo, with a perfect view of Los Arcos. We chose anytime dining, and always shared a table. We love meeting so many other passengers....most of whom were also from the Bay Area. We did have dinner one evening at Sabatini’s, which was wonderful. There are so many ways to cruise on this ship. There are so many activities to fit any level of activity you want. Or you can be as lazy as you want! This time I took advantage of a spa special, and even had my hair shampooed and blown out. Our cabin was clean and the bed was very comfortable. The bed is available for purchase, and I would buy one in a heartbeat if it rocked! I appreciated the level of attention to cleanliness. There are now sinks at the entrances to the buffet areas, with attendants making sure that everyone washes their hands. Another thing I appreciated was that this time we didn’t experience any hard up-selling that we have experienced before.

    The ship wasn't as big as I'd expected, which made it easier to navigate to different dining and entertainment options. Our stateroom was the perfect size for the two of us. Pros: Our stateroom was great, couldn't be happier. Perfect amount of space for the two of us,

    We had Suite L301 on Lido Deck 14. It is on the starboard (right) midship side of the ship and is around 740sf including the balcony. For two of us the suite is just great as we can spread out and relax and enjoy a very quiet atmosphere with no music or noise from

    The cabin air conditioning did not work so we called the Customer Service desk, they sent up a mechanic. He opened the vent all the way and said the air conditioning should work better. Well it didn't. After several calls for repair they sent up chocolate covered

    Princess Cruises did not disappoint! 10 day family event out of San Francisco to Puerto Vallarta, Manzanillo, Mazatlan and Cabo San Lucas and back to SF. Weather was VERY hot in Mexico during Sept/Oct. Port cities were interesting and felt safe, nice excursions either from ship
