Island Princess Panama Canal R/T: Island Princess Cruise Review by gearshift
Overall Member Rating
Island Princess Panama Canal R/T
Destination: Panama Canal & Central America
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
The passing More through the canal was nothing short of awesome! Cost Rica was beautiful (we did the tram through the rain-forest.....Princess booking, (overpriced) In Grand Cayman we also did a Princess booking for over $100.00 a piece for two snorkeling stops and one swim with the stingrays. When I got home, the company that took us on this excursion gets $44.00/person.
So......book your excursions on line. Just make sure you get back to the ship on time.
This was our first 10 day cruise and I am convinced that 7 days is not long enough. We had a balcony on RC two years ago and that's the only way to go for the extra money. (unless you can afford a suite)
To wrap it up, the food was OK, main Dining Room menus could have been better. Additionally, the two shows that we saw in the Princess Theater were very good but the entertainment could have been more varied. (They kept repeating shows throughout the cruise) Less
