March 2015 - Ruby Princess to Coastal - West Coast
Ports of call were great - how could they NOT be! San Francisco, Santa Barbara, San Diego and Ensenada. Very friendly people and terrific service. I am a Royal Caribbean loyalist so going on a Princess ship was new for me. I did not have the best of expectations, but then again, this cruise was pretty cheap, so I had little to loose. The food was outstanding... much better than my recent experience on the Quantum of the Seas with Royal Caribbean. The ship is magnificent (and I haven't sailed on a ship under 6400 or 4400 passengers lately, so I thought at first that this 3100 passenger ship was "tiny" :) ) We had HUGE 20' swells outside of San Francisco that looked very scary and a lot of us were looking outside completely shocked that the ship wasn't even tilting at all... completely stable. That was quite remarkable. This cruise is the perfect model of a fantastic cruise experience!
