February 2015 - 7 Night Mexican Riviera (Los Angeles Roundtrip) Cruise on Crown Princess
Overall, we were pleased with our first Princess Cruise. Parking at the cruise terminal with the assistance of the shuttle was helpful. The porters received our bags and they were delivered timely. Our stateroom was nice. The shower was a little small. Rico, our cabin steward did a great job! The food on the ship was always good to very good whether at the buffets or dining room. We thought the pizza could have been better. Our last night, we ate at the Crown Grill and it was very good. All the wait-staff throughout were helpful. It was our first experience with receiving assistance with water, coffee and juice in the buffet and pool areas. We went to all the shows in the Princess Theatre. The entertainment was good, but we have had better overall on other cruise lines. The Princess singers, dancers and orchestra did a good job. We very much enjoyed pianist, Jowita Tabaszewska. However, there were other people in the Adagio Bar and the Crooner's Lounge who were very inconsiderate during her playing. People would sit up in front and then not listen to the music, instead focusing on drinking, talking loudly and even laughing. Others also would sit in front and read/play on their IPADS or spend time on their smart-phones. It was distracting and aggravating. We enjoyed the Neptune pool. Disembarking, we were able to get off the ship quickly. A fun cruise!
