Nice short cruise with at least one good port. I'm a fan of Princess and this was a pretty average experience for a Princess cruise. The boat was getting ready to head out to the Orient and it seemed like they were starting to prepare for that cruise at the expense of this itinerary to some degree. The poker table had been removed from the casino in preparation as well as a few other things.

Service and Staff

Not quite as good as I expected based on past Princess experience. I think they were a bit stressed getting ready for the ship to move.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
This class of Princess ship is on the top of my list. Easy to navigate and they are all the same, so if you've been on one you know you're way around.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Nice size for an interior room and the closet/bath layout keeps you out of each others way.

Ship Tip

The rear adult only pool is a great place to relax in relative peace. My favorite spot on the ship.

We stayed in the Long Beach area, close to the ship and lots to do.

Great little town to walk around in. Check Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives for a good Mexican lunch walking distance to the ship, as well as a couple local microbreweries in walking distance as well.

Might be a nice place to do an excursion, but not a nice place for walking around.
