Very enjoyable time

I booked this cruise for a couple reasons - it was a great deal when we booked and sailing out of LA is an easier flight for us. We really didn't care where it was going and weren't really excited about Mexico at ...

Good birthday cruise with some issues.

Enjoyed the trip for the most part. We did like to see some of the shows on the outside big screen. But it was way to loud most of the time which drove us to the other pool. The pool under the screen was somewhat ...

Princess is going down the tubes

We have taken many cruises and have been on most of the lines. I don’t expect Princess to be in the ranks of Crystal, but certainly should be better then Carnival since it is their “Premiere” line. First ...

The Rudy was just revamped and there are many nice additions. The Salty Dog on 15 now offers many more items along with the regular hot dog & hamburger. The new coffee and cones was convenient & the coffee in the ...
