Island Princess (II), Crystal Symphony & Vision of the Seas
This review was written by Amy Blume.

On February 25th, 2007, three ships were in at the Port of Los Angeles, San Pedro; the 92,000grt Island Princess, which debuted in 2003 and is a variation on the Sun class.  The 51,000grt Crystal Symphony and 78,491grt Vision of the Seas.  My mother Carolyn Blume and I went down to the Port to see the three ships sail, first stopping at the dock to take some pictures in port.  Vision of the Seas was parked in Berth 93, with Crystal Symphony in Berth 92 and Island Princess in Berth 91.

On the way back to the car on the other side of the terminal I caught me a stalker!  Oh wait that's my MOM!  Then it's down to Land's End to watch Island Princess leave. The wind starts to blow!

We didn't have long to wait for Crystal Symphony as the Princess had been late leaving.  Another stalker caught on tape...  Gasp!  It's me sporting my Princess Leia hairdo!  Look how I risk my life for
Then from down the channel suddenly a blast sounds and Vision is off.  It takes her a long time to back out but then she blows her whistle again at Ports O'Call (four times no less) and then again as she approaches Land's End!  (Note stalker caught again on Mom Cam!)
Alas another stalking day ends with a happy though windblown ending.
