Ship Facts: Island Princess Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Island Princess Deck Plans
Great Ship,great Itinery, one of the Bucket list !

Travelling from Spain and then Heathrow..a smooth flight organised by Princess and onward transport to Intercontinental Hotel BUT why as it felt to us, in the middle of no where. It was not safe to walk around outside the hotel with the traffic whizzing around. Luckily we had arranged a tour of Miami the following day so we managed to see more popular night beside the Hotel we had the choice of Wendys or a Rib shack&Beefburgers or Sushi !

Transport to Ship all went smoothly and into our room which was everything we expected, shower smallish but Ok for us. Great sound proofing everywhere,,did not know we had neighbours

Restaurants were excellent, Restaurant Manager and staff all very helpful and cheery.

With so many days at sea we had good weather and plenty to occupy our time,loved the Zumba with Sasha and the Dancing, played 9 hole golf, shuffle board, chess etc...

First port Aruba, been before but worth hiring a 4 x 4 and go to beach or visit town on open FREE Tram

Loved Cartegena, great city and enjoyed organised Segways (private tour via Trip Advisor) Zip lining in Puntaneras great. Cabo San Lucas saw hump back whales, sea Lions ,good snorkeling etc

Panama Canal interesting and plenty of information, weather a bit overcast but very warm...great experience. Did not think much of Juan del Sur...afternoon trip to Rivas not worth the money!

Met some great like minded Aussies but many of the fellow shipmates went to early dinner and everyone was in bed by 10.30am...the night clubs had no takers!

Shows were good, cruise staff did a great job with the Competitions (especially Sasha) .

Would have appreciated drinks package but used the Soda package. Wine overpriced,,
