We chose Princess because our friends have raved about their many cruises, and we were not disappointed. We flew in from upstate NY and spent a few days in Key Largo, then returned our car to the airport and caught a taxi to the ship. ... Read more

We boarded the ship for a 6 day cruise finding the embarkation and debarkation smooth and super efficient. The food was average to slightly above average for a cruise ship. What stands out above all else was the level of service. It was ... Read more

We had successfully sailed with Princess three times before and when I found that Princess had a cruise from Fort Lauderdale through the Panama Canal around my preferred date, we booked it without really checking alternative cruise lines. ... Read more

My DH does not like sea days so this is the perfect cruise. We were off ship in a different country nearly every two days. The Island Princess is in need of some TLC. Some of the hallway carpets, especially on Emerald deck, were ripped ... Read more

This cruise fulfilled a long held ambition to do the Panama Canal. That part was brilliant. The ship was Ok but needs a bit of an upgrade. There was a lot of rust showing through on the decks and not a lot of maintenance appeared to ... Read more

My wife and I love this ship. Great deck plans, so much to do, bands were great, dancing was great, all was great, except the food quality declined since our cruise last January. Our cabin was large and everything was nice, except the ... Read more

We try always to cruise on Princess because they consistently offer a very good value for our money. Food, service, cleanliness and condition of ship is always excellent. The Island Princess is not a mega ship, approximately 2,200 ... Read more

We chose the cruise through the Panama Canal because it had an ittinery that attracted us. The shows were the BEST that we have seen on any cruise line The LINES to get to things were bad- we waited 2 3/4 hours to get on the ship, ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we obviously wanted to cruise the Panama Canal. We do not cruise every year, nor have we had particular loyalty to any one cruise line. We have, however, been on around 10 cruises over the years. We had ... Read more

This was an amazing "bucket list" trip through the Panama Canal! The service was stellar as was the food in the any time dining room. Loved the pizza for lunch in Sabatinis. We spent the sea days in the sanctuary and most ... Read more

A Panama Canal cruise was on our to-do list for a long time. The Island Princess is a mid-sized ship, so it doesn't have a lot of entertainment venues. Our low-end balcony cabin was just right, as we didn't spend a lot of time there. At ... Read more

Notes on Island Princess, 1/19/17 - 2/3/17 Panama Canal Full Transit I wanted to transit the Canal since I was 12 years old. My mother had done it in the 1930s, and gave me Frederic Haskin's 1913 book about the Canal as a present. ... Read more

First of all, the Royal Princess is a very large ship. This didn't bother me. It is decorated beautifully, and in the hallways to the cabins, there are photos sent in by Princess passengers. Our Deck 11 mini-suite felt big, and was ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the interesting itinerary and the date was appealing to us. This was our second Princess cruise, the first being our August 2015 Coral Princess Alaska cruise. We booked rather close to the embarkation date ... Read more

We wanted to get away from the cold and this 10 day cruise fit the bill. We had never been to Dominica so there was something to look forward to. The Royal is a very pretty ship, but I really miss the Promenade deck. If you want to ... Read more

After 2 weeks on the Regal (Jan 8 and 15 2017), our preference for a bit smaller ships is reinforced. The Regal is lovely and her crew are great. However, the entertainment (ranging from game shows to Trivia to big theatre performances to ... Read more

This was our second time on Regal and our first time on Princess as Elite. Honestly, I don't think the Elite status had anything to do with it, but the service we received on this cruise from virtually every crew/staff member onboard was ... Read more

This was our first time sailing on Princess. Our family had sailed with them many times and have great stories of their times so when they asked us to join them we thought why not and booked a Suite on Deck 9 forward. Overall the ... Read more
