Sapphire Princess


September 26th to October 2nd, 2009

It doesn’t happen very often that we decide to cancel a cruise. When we realized that the cruise we had planned for the fall of 2009 was becoming too expensive once all the expenses were being taken into consideration, we changed our plans and booked this Mexican Riviera cruise out of Los Angeles. Lee has been pushing for a West Coast Mexican cruise for a while now, Mike was happy to accommodate.

This was our first experience on a Princess ship. We enjoyed the cruise and would not hesitate to sail with Princess again.
