Queen Mary 2

August 2016 - Queen Mary 2 to Transatlantic

A Beautiful Step Back in Time

A trans - Atlantic crossing on the QM-2 is not a cruise, it is the experience of a step back to the time where those who traveled were more affluent and enjoyed an elegant life-style with a British Influence.  Everything is five star with a strong emphasis on personal enrichment opportunities during the day.  Evenings are dedicated to stylish dress, cocktails, dining in beautiful venues, dancing in the Queens Room for ballroom aficionados, and top flight entertainment offerings.  This particular crossing featured jazz in many venues of the ship.   The recent remastering of the ship is awesome.  A slightly more contemporary feel has been introduced without sacrificing the traditional British feeling.  For those who prefer the cruise format (a new port almost every day) this may not be your cup of tea.  But it is a cup of tea you should try at least once.

Crown Princess

March 2015 - Crown Princess to Mexico

No fuss week to Mexico

If you live in Los Angeles as we do, this is a super-easy trip to take since the ship departs from San Pedro.  No flights involved.  The Crown Princess, as other Princess ships, and in spite of it's comparatively young age (entered service in 2006), has a dated feeling.  Aqua, tan and peach decor are found everywhere.  The mini suite was very comfortable and well worth the extra dollars.  The dining room service was erratic,  the menu was not too exciting, while the ambiance was very pleasant.  Service in other areas of the ship was always excellent. 

The itinerary includes Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlan and Cabo San Lucas.  The departure from Cabo San Lucas at 1PM realistically make this a two port journey.    We especially enjoyed the week because of the company of 8 other friends.  The whole experience in relation to Princess Cruises and not our friends is "good" at best.

Crown Princess Crown Princess - It is a good ship. However, I don't think anything about it sets it apart from its competition.
