We had a lot of questions before we went on our first family cruise hosted by Princess Cruises so we are sharing a complete review of the Crown Princess, Princess Cruises California Coastal cruise.

Day 6 in San Diego! 

It's a funny thing being a tourist in your own hometown, but it's also pretty cool too! We decided to do some things we've always wanted to do that we never can find the time to do… plus we arranged for a surprise stop at a Crossfit Box that our middle daughter has wanted to workout at for a very long time! 

The day started by docking in San Diego… this is a very easy port to disembark from to get on shore.

We were off the ship quickly and enjoying a walk around Little Italy in less than 10 minutes.

Pete and Ashley headed straight to Invictus Crossfit for a workout. Ash was THRILLED to visit, and workout at this box, and they were so welcoming!

Maddie, Emmy and I explored the side streets around the Crossfit Box and soon it was time to get back on board the ship and enjoy a drink. While I was sipping a cocktail, everyone else went for a swim!

When we headed back to the room, there were delicious surprise afternoon snacks waiting for us…

Here is how the rest of the day went.

Leaving for Ensenada…

Dinner in Da Vinci's… This ended up being our favorite restaurant. We never made it to all of them because we loved it here so much. There was an additional charge to eat here, and it was absolutely worth it. Everyone quickly learned our preferences and the chef created such wonderful meals for us that were vegetarian and vegan. I am asked all the time if the food on Princesses Cruises is good and the answer is always yes. The food is really good!

We dropped the kids all in kids camp and Pete, and I enjoyed some entertainment and the casino (I won!).
