March 2016 - 7 Night California Coastal (Los Angeles Roundtrip) Cruise on Crown Princess
I was very pleased with this cruise for husband Gary and myself. As we live in southern California and March has very variable weather, we did NOT pre-book any shore excursions, but did get off at all ports.
It's easy to use public transportation in San Francisco and San Diego. Note that Santa Barbara's electric shore and Old Town shuttle at Wharf is only 25 cents for seniors; although it's not a HopOn-HopOff tour, the city is so small & cost so low, you can easily go to end of ride, then start again & stop at agreed-upon attraction.
Again, we were very pleased with Crown Princess ship, attentive ship staff and their food service, and the stops.
