We've booked Diamond Princess 7 day Baja Mexico Cruise for Christmas week. We've cruised Princess once before--Coral to Alaska. We made this booking several months ago. We were excited with the idea of cruising on a new ship. As east coast residents, this would be our first warm weather Pacific cruise. However reviews for this ship are pretty poor compared to easier-to-get-to cruises out of Florida Same time frame and similar cruise fare options are Sun Princess or Zuiderdam. So we're asking ourselves: is it worth the the extra travel time effort and air fare expense for a ship which is problematic,just to cruise a newer ship and itinerary alternative? Any advice out there? Thanks.
