Review summary

I had an excellent vacation. I got to see California at an easy pace and did not feel rushed even though we covered so much. The ship was lovely and provided lots to do on your days at sea. Take advantage of the spa it is well worth it

Ship was easy to get around. They gave you a deck plan when you came on board. The ship was spotless

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
I loved this cabin . The stateroom faced the back of the ship and was quite and private. Only one other cabin next to us. It was like sailing on a private yacht. Bed was comfortable. Bathroom was tiny

Ship tip

Make sure you get to main show early. Enjoy all the extras that you get for free. International café on deck 5,

Loved this city. Lots of sea life to see. Saw sea otters, seals and whales just out in the bay. The sea otters came right up to the ship. Very quaint

San Diego, California

Did 2 excursions. Harbor tour and hop on hop off trolley. This is a beautiful city. Lots to see and you really need multiple days to cover it. I need to got back. The excursions I took gave we a wonderful overview.
