October 2015 - Crown Princess to Coastal - West Coast
Easy, fun trip going to some of our favorite California cities for a day at a time, without the driving, packing and unpacking....and in our case, no need to flight across country a day in advance, saving time, money and a hotel room. These advantages were capitalized upon by a number of physically challenged passengers. There was tendering at Santa Barbara, but otherwise, we were parked at piers walking distance to the cities. We went to 4 shows which were all very good, two of which were musical reviews, one was magic and the fourth was a telepathic magic show of sorts. The two magic(esque) shows were incredible. The Princess staff was all very polite and attentive, especially our cabin steward. Food was Princess food. A new specialty 'event' is a Crab Fest dinner, which was quite the change....very different and generally offered only once per week. Demand caused them to offer a second night, that we happily attended. I would definitely do this again.
