Sliding Down the Coast to California

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Suite

Everything was soooo easy! Embarkation was doable. Slight delay at the elevators (not bad though) - slight delay getting the luggage delivered - but weren't in a real hurry. Weather was glorious! Incredible views from underneath the Golden Gate bridge and Alcatraz while sipping champagne. Tried anytime dining for a change - didn't like the lines. Enjoyed the ports of call.

Met a friend who showed us around and lunched at the Trump golf course - LUXURIANT.
San Diego, California
Great "Hop On Hop Off" trolley option - neat museums - beautiful town.
Ensenada, Mexico
Enjoyed the old town - bought some fake Cuban cigars - which was fun (but don't pay too much - try to get a box of phony Montecristo No. 2s - for $20 or $25 - the box is cool - the cigars are crap)


POSH - port side out, starboard in still works - particularly down the coast to Mexico and back.
