Trying a new route/cruise line

This is my standard going away post. The ship is the Star Princess. I haven’t tried Princess before but she leaves from San Francisco which couldn’t have been easier.

This is the route



And this is what we have planned.

Sat Feb 7 San Francisco, CA 4:00pm
Sun Feb 8 At Sea
Mon Feb 9 At Sea
Tue Feb 10 Cabo San Lucas, Mexico 8:00am 5:00pm
Wed Feb 11 Loreto, Mexico 8:00am 6:00pm
Thu Feb 12 La Paz, Mexico 7:00am 2:00pm
Fri Feb 13 Puerto Vallarta, Mexico Noon 8:00pm
Sat Feb 14 At Sea
Sun Feb 15 At Sea
Mon Feb 16 At Sea
Tue Feb 17 San Francisco, CA 7:00am

I am dragging along Carmen on this trip since we didn’t get to cruise this past fall and I decided that she needed time out. No, not a time out, time out and away from snow, rain, work and family obligations….

For whatever stupid reason, I wound up in charge of the Meeting & Greet Cruise Critic Group. Princess, unlike Royal/Celebrity/others – doesn’t organize for you or run on-line registration….

Ah well – at least new food and experiences!

    Let us know how you like Princess. We have only sailed them a couple of times but have enjoyed them.

    Sounds wonderful.

    I gather we’re in for at least another foot of snow. It starts tonight and lasts until midnight on Monday. We seem to be losing Monday this year. This will be the second Monday in a row that we’ve had more than a foot. Sigh. At least we have someone who comes and plows us out.

    Hi did one princess cruise many years and found nothing wrong with it. But like all cruise ships will take your money and it is pot luck. We feel if you want 6 star plus pay it and then complain,if there is faults.

    I hope you enjoyed your visit with your family.
    God blessyou

    We missed you in San Francisco! Rebecca, Sally, and I arrived there Thursday morning for the b’nai mitzvot of my niece’s twins, a girl and a boy, on Saturday. They did well. Of course, we spent all of our time visiting with relatives and friends who came for the event. I returned Sunday. Rebecca and Sally went to Napa to visit a friend. They will return Wednesday night.

    Enjoy your voyage.

    Glad to see you are cruising again. Matt and I have cruise a few times on Princess and have never been disappointed. Was glad to hear your adorable cat decided to wonder back home.
    Well that is all the exciting news from here. Looking forward to your travel blogs, living vicariously through
    your travels till we get on another cruise. Happy trails,

    thank you for the great info, we noticed on researching Princess that they did not have sofas in their balcony cabins like Royal has in their D1-2 cabins, we like our sofa.

    I like the dedicated lounges on Royal & Celiberty and Princess would have to be be extremely inexpensive to cruise on before we changed.

    quite a pat on the back for you getting Princess to accept a cabin crawl, leave it to you to change a major cruise lines thinking, who knows maybe they will hire you.
