Overall, the 4 day cruise was satisfactory, but there are several areas where improvements could be made, in our opinion:

1. We were 'past cruisers' - 3 times - but no one could seem to figure out when we cruised. An agent we contacted after returning home said that they could locate the dates by putting in Robert L Ross, 02/07/1932. Seems that he was the only one capable of doing this.

2. Though the food was acceptable it was 'bare bones' when certain things were considered: No Lobster, no crab, few 'meaty offerings', few salad offerings. (We could go to the 'buffet' and get a salad but we wanted to be 'waited on'!

3. There was a photography co. that was pushing their 'black and white' photos with a session on the 19th. deck - name slips our mind - that was a big 'rip-off'! We know that some people want to spend 'big-bucks' on this activity but the whole thing should be explained BEFORE getting to the 'studio'. ("Fool me once, shame on you; Fool me twice, shame on me)! We won't be 'fooled again').

4. A GOOD THING: Our waiter in our assigned eating place was GREAT! (Daniel from Hungary) Friendly, personable, good English, knowledgeable about the menu, VERY helpful about 'ship things' in general.

5 Even though the first night late arrival from Ensenada was an inconvenience, the safety of the ship and passengers is to be commended - also, we received $208.00 credit to our account which covered everything, including drinks and 'tips'! 

I doubt that we would again take a '4-day cruise'. We will cruise again - just longer. (We have deposited a $200.00 'future cruise' fee with Princess which we have 2 years to use or it is refunded).

All in all, a nice 'get-away, but only a 3 star, overall.

Nice size, convenient and clean.

'Past cruisers' but not recognized as such - see above
Ship Quality

Seems to be an 'old' ship in need of some work - paint, flooring, etc.
