Thanks for the great review of your cruise. We sail on the Sapphire Princess on the Oct 31, 2009 and have the same itinerary as you did. I picked up some great pointers from what you reported.
This will be our fifteenth cruise on Princess and on our next cruise we will be in the elite program and looking forward to all those new past passenger perks.
Is there anything else in regard to the ports that you wish you had done or anything that you did do that you would not recommend? Any other recommendations about ports would be deeply appreciated.
