The most disappointing part of the trip was our "cruising" Lake Gatun. We went through the first set of locks and parked among the freighters. Everyone wanted to know about the "cruising" around Lake Gatun. Having been through the canal numerous times we missed a great opportunity by just being anchored. Princess also took the stop at Cristobal off the itinerary that was originally planned.
The Horizon Court Buffet food was forgettable. The area is small and congested. It got to the point I was not looking forward to lunch. Finally we went to the dining room for lunch and was very satisfied.
Dining room food offerings were not as exotic as previous Princess cruises.
Overall we were very satisfied with the cruise. The ship is well kept except for the furniture on our deck which was corroding and the wood on the railings needed some attention.
Only problem was the beggars who constantly are in your face trying to sell you stuff. A few times Elkin, our guide, had to say something to them to get them to back off.
Took a taxi for our tour. We toured a banana plantation and saw the process after the bananas are picked.
Took a boat ride down a river looking for wildlife. The boat reminded me of the African Queen.
