Hi Stuart- I'm currently researching this trip on 01/14/07. It sounds terrific. We just came off the Sapphire Princess from Mexico, & loved it! We sailed on the Dawn Princess to Alaska in 2002, & loved it.

Hi Stuart- Four of us shmooshed into an inside quad!! I was a bit apprehensive at first, but it turned out just fine. The value can't be beat, since there are 4 of us.

Hi Stuart- I'm sure you'll have a wonderful time! I think we're going to go ahead with the Dawn Princess sailing, as we'll be celebrating my husband's 50th birthday! -Susie

I've done Princess out of San Francisco to Mexico in October and the Mercury out of San Diego in January. The Mercury isn't as large as the Princess ship, and I liked the excursions better. However, the Mercury is an older ship and looks it. The beds were pretty bad on the Mercury, and we had the owner's suites on both ships. I liked the food on Princess better. Some of the staff on both ships weren't that friendly. Princess had more bars and music. The entertainment on Mercury was random. The Princess ship had better pool areas. Princess takes care of the tips and Celebrity does partially. Princess has washers and dryers which is good if you do dirty excursions like we did. The Mercury has no washing facilities. We had a hot tub on the Mercury balcony so I put our jeans in that and turned on the jets. I liked some things on both ships and didn't like some things on both ships. I liked everything on the Crystal ship.

Hi Stuart. My mother is on the Dawn on her way to Cabo this morning. She tells me the rooms are very tiny but clean. She has an inside cabin on the Dolphin deck-sharing with her travel agent friend. My sister and I are going with her on this same cruise in April and will have a balcony on the Aloha deck. Mom saw this one and says it is also very small. A tight squeeze. Not what she is used on the other Princess cruise ships. She says the food is good and having a good time.

An update on the room size on the Dawn. Mom decided the three of us would be too cramped in the Aloha Balcony so she was able to move us to the Baja Mini Suite. Should be much better.

We just returned from a 10 day cruise on the Dawn Princess out of San Francisco to Mexico.
This was the first time on the Dawn and we had a super great time, the ship was well kept and very clean,the food was some of the best We have had on a ship, entertainment was excellent.
This was our 15 cruise. 10 on Princess
