My husband and I truly enjoyed every aspect of this cruise.  Everything about a Princess cruise is top notch.  The wonderful service from everyone on board.  The crew are truly amazing.  The food was superb, whether it was in one of the beautiful dining rooms, the buffet, or out by the pool.  The five ports were all very interesting and I feel had something for everyone.  San Diego has so much to see, the zoo, Sea World, Lego Land, Old Town, the harbor area with some great WWII memorabilia and statues.  Cabo San Lucas, very busy, a beautiful coastline, great fish tacos and great water activities.  La Paz, very rustic, beautiful cathedral and the most beautiful ocean.  Loreto was our favorite (plan to go back).  Once again, a beautiful cathedral, very clean, no big box stores, beautiful beach and ocean.  The people were very warm and friendly.  Puerta Vallarta has a gorgeous boardwalk with shops and small restaurants with great food.  The beaches were fantastic.  The only thing we didn't care for was to see a Sams Club and a Walmart off the balcony of our ship.  The days at sea, you could relax and enjoy with a book, or go to different lecture series.  My husband enjoyed the Photography group.  The nightime entertainment was as good as Las Vegas, if not better.  Great singing and dancing groups; comediens were hilarious.  We really enjoyed this trip.
