Review summary

Parking was so easy in Los Angeles. We no sooner parked, and a porter was in the lot. He picked up our luggage, and we were good to go. It was so easy to check in and wait inside in comfortable seatimg to be allowed on.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Food was tougher for me, as a vegetarian that doesn’t like Thai or Indian food. The head waiter did his absolute best to be sure I was happy.

Dining Room

5 out of 5

Do Vinci dining room was spacious and warm. Service was fairly quick.

Onboard Activities

I loved the marriage game. Also thoroughly enjoyed the time when some of the ship’s staff entertained us. Loved the afternoon tea too. Also enjoyed meeting Linda Grey from Dallas and hearing her speak.

Embarkation easy.

San Francisco, California

5 out of 5
I loved San Francisco. Enjoyed going on Deck 16 at 5:30 am to see the ship go under the Golden Gate Bridge... and at 11:30 pm from my balcony. Loved going to see the Golden Gate Bridge, Lombard Street, the Fortune Cookie Factory, the Mrs.Doubtfire Home, and so many other stops. We booked an SUV and driver, and had the greatest time with our friends who live in San Francisco.

Monterey, California

3 out of 5
We didn’t care for the movie tour booked through Princess. The bus was packed, seats small. It was very hard to see, especially without a window seat. It was raining too. The guide was knowledgeable.

San Diego, California

5 out of 5
We took a tour to San Jose and all around San Diego with a stop in Old Town. The guide was great.

Ensenada, Mexico

1 out of 5
I don’t care for this Port. We got off for photos and to look in the dock store. Then right back on.
