7 Night California Coastal (Los Angeles Roundtrip)
Sail Date: October 10, 2015
Ship: Crown Princess
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: D734
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 2 years ago

Easy, fun trip going to some of our favorite California cities for a day at a time, without the driving, packing and unpacking....and in our case, no need to flight across country a day in advance, saving time, money and a hotel room.  These advantages were capitalized upon by a number of physically challenged passengers. There was tendering at Santa Barbara, but otherwise, we were parked at piers walking distance to the cities.  We went to 4 shows which were all very good, two of which were musical reviews, one was magic and the fourth was a telepathic magic show of sorts.  The two magic(esque) shows were incredible.  The Princess staff was all very polite and attentive, especially our cabin steward.  Food was Princess food.  A new specialty 'event' is a Crab Fest dinner, which was quite the change....very different and generally offered only once per week.  Demand caused them to offer a second night, that we happily attended.  I would definitely do this again.

We had an AFT balcony, which means that we had an oversized patio facing away from the back of the ship. The patio has walls that can be removed if you have family or friends next door, but otherwise totally protect from the wind. This means you have privacy and can sit on the balcony anytime. We had breakfast there several days. Particularly nice was the view leaving SF, crossing under the bridge and seeing the city and (other) bridge lit up, as a large panorama view.
