I chose Princess because I never sailed with them before. I went on my birthday and thought it would be something special and to my surprise it was very dissapointing. I suggest that more interactive activities be provided for the passengers that stay on board while in a port. The dining menu was good and the steff was great, they were very proficent and professional and was very attentive to your needs.The cabin staff was very good and provided whatever you needed. There is a lot of needed improvement in there entertainment. It would be nice if they provided more venues instead of the same two or three they schedule they just move from one place to another. I feel that Princess provides their activities for the oldest passengers when some of us are still young at heart and would like more then just flying paper airplanes, knitting and art auctions. I don't think I will be sailing with Princess again. Read Less

I have to say the ship was the worst that i have been on and i paid the most. i have been on at least 13 cruises over the past 10 years and would never recommend this ship. The improvements they made were pretty much undetected. The cabin, which was a balcony was extremely small. 2 of us in the room and very little space for anything. The shower was ridiculously small. I am only 5'2" and can't imagine if i was taller or larger. There was very little to no space to put shampoo/conditioner or anything else needed in that shower. I had to bend down to get off the floor which was not a comfortable thing to do. the bathroom itself had very little space to put anything. The food left much to be desired. I ate in specialty restaurants just to get away from the dining room which was so freakin slow and the food in the buffet or market as they call it left much to be desired. I have never had to eat in specialty dining on any previous cruises. the ship had lots of problems, lost power, had to stop in the ocean with no movement, and the air conditioning was almost non existent. Would never recommend. Read Less

This was my firstl, bugtdifficult to figure out Panama Canal Cruise; 3rd cruise on Princess; 12th cruise overall. I had a wonderful time. I was widowed less than a year ago and chose this cruise because I didn't want to be home for my late husband's birthday and I was part of a group of singles on this cruise. The ship is beautiful; however, I kept getting lost. Princess does not make it easy to get from Point A to Point B without looking at a map. There is no difference in the carpets on the cabin decks and very few signs state 'starboard' or 'aft'. Not all elevators go to all the decks so it is a constant going to one floor, walking to one end to find the elevator to take you to the correct deck. The food was very good to excellent in the Main Dining Room. I am a picky eater, but had no problems finding something on the menu to eat. The one time I didn't enjoy my entree (too spicy), I was able to order something else. The buffet had a large variety of foods to choose from. The pizza was okay. I enjoyed the coffee at the International Cafe. My cabin was an obstructed OceanView. I was lucky that my window was between two lifeboats, but there was a platform for the workers. However, I was able to see the water and the ports from my cabin. Not sure I would book an obstructed cabin again (I personally like to look out the window and am claustrophobic so need to see an outside). The only port I had been to previously was Princess Cay. Relaxing beach day. Panama Canal - if you have never been, take the excursion that goes through the locks to the Pacific Ocean. It is a long day, but worth it. Cartegna, Columbia - took a city tour. Lots of history. It was a hot day and lots of walking but fun and interesting. Costa Rica - I took an excursion to the Canal and a train ride. Saw sloths, monkeys and various birds. Grand Cayman - Went to the Turtle Center and Hell. Hell is worth the visit one time so that you can truly say that you've been to Hell and back. Don't need to go back there. The Turtle Center was fun and educational. Got to hold a baby turtle. I didn't go to the shows. Although smoking is allowed in some areas of the casino, the tables were smoke free. Casino staff were a lot of fun. Read Less
