I give this cruise 3 and ½ stars - not because of the missed day and the norovirus problems - but because of the lack of communication at the beginning. We were told that we would be provided a complimentary bus to Long Beach and back.  We were not told that we would be forced to stay in Long Beach for 5 hours with no option to return to the pier.  Nor were we informed of any reasons for the delay or given a timeline for departure.  Simple communication would be nice.

Our stateroom was kept fairly well maintained and clean, about a 4 ½ star level.  The entertainment, food, Port options and other amenities were very well done.  Movies under the stars – what a great idea.  Everything on the cruise was above a 4 star level, but it did not quite make up for the problems at the beginning.  We will cruise with Princess again – but only if the pricing is much better than Celebrity for the same cruise.

Ship Tip

binoculars are nice. This is one where a balcony is very much better.

The city tour was very nice.

Go see the whales. Glass bottom boat is not really a bonus. You can see more over the side.
