Crown Princess

January 2016 - Crown Princess to Mexico

Not up to Princess standards but not terrible

In general, service and dining were mediocre; not what I expected from Princess. It seemed like Princess staffed the ship with 2nd team players.

Weather was bad but captain seemed to do his best managing a bad situation.

I did like substituting San Diego Animal Safari for Catalina since waters and weather were to rough to enjoy Catalina anyway.

Also, the ship needs work. We could hear significant engine vibrations way up on the 11th deck and occasionally hear and feel a strong thump as if the ship went over a speed bump in the ocean; didn't know the ocean had speed bumps.

BobAtLarge's Tips

San Pedro (Los Angeles), California - Get there early to get decent parking. However, shuttles run regularly and not a long trip to the pier. Also, get good directions if you have not been there before.
Ensenada, Mexico - Ship could not dock due to unsafe waters. Too bad but not tragic.
Crown Princess Crown Princess - If there is danger of choppy seas, get a cabin on a low deck near midship.
