Review summary

It was a very good short get away. As a repositioning cruise it was a great bargain. (I used frequent flier miles to do the open-jaw air ticket.)

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Crown Grill was excellent. Service in the main dining room was excellent. Food in MDR was good but not as good as Princess cruises a few years ago.

Onboard Activities

2 out of 5
They had a very small first come first serve limit on craft events (20 people). Many more than that showed up to participate. The paper airplane activity was a lot of fun and was one of the best activities.

The pool and hot tubs at the back of the ship are adults only and very nice--much less crowded.

Went to Getty Museum on my own--it was awesome.

San Diego, California

4 out of 5
Did a private excursion with Another Side of San Diego Tours (Kevin was guide) and he was excellent. Unfortunately many museums at Balboa are closed on Mondays. Also went to Maritime Museum and would recommend it.

Victoria, British Columbia

Burchart Gardens were beautiful! Loved that our stop was so long there--plenty of time to see everything.
