March 2015 - 17 Night Andes & South America (Valparaiso To Los Angeles) Cruise on Ruby Princess

A Dream Come True

My son and I took this wonderfully relaxing trip up the west coast of South America, Central America and Mexico because we liked the thought of 10 days at sea and 7 ports.  It was all we expected and more.  We had the best Cabin Steward I've had in almost 40 cruises.  Getting around the ship was a quick to learn experience.  We bought a ring - for me - at Facets - and a watch - for him - as special reminders of this "ideal" trip.  No grouchy people on this ship except a few of the "senior oriental passengers".  Hey, that was THEIR problem!!!  I'm a "senior of 78" and just went right on enjoying!!!... We do have a conversation going with Princess about some excess casino charges, but it's being taken care of I hope.  The casino is not run by Princess but franchised and we felt it important to let Princess know there might be a problem in that regard.  We would go on that trip again, loving the ports, making a few friends in those ports. After 17 days on board, we cannot picture going back to a "measly" 7 day cruise!  LOL

We had to book our own transfer to John Wayne airport...It was a nightmare to get the Prime Time service that we were at Pier 92 TWO...and sat for almost 2 hours trying to make them understand. Then our driver sat at Pier 95 we found out,.... after we told Prime Time 92 TWO !!!

Puntarenas, Costa Rica

Interesting but be ready for a LOOOOONG bus ride each way! Out guide spoke excellent English, was very informative, but the ride was still LOOOOOONG. Coffee plantation and cart factory fascinating
