Disappointing Cruise

Review for Island Princess to Panama Canal & Central America

We chose this cruise to see the islands Jamaica, Panama Canal, Cayman Islands , Columbia, and Costa Rica. Unfortunately due to rough water and Corona Virus scare we could only see Columbia and Costa Rica. This was very disappointing and the water was very rough going from Fort Lauderdale in Florida to Jamaica causing many people to get motion sickness and was the main reason for our ship not ...

My husband and I have traveled extensively. We were excited that this cruise was to take us to multiple ports and did not repeat any that we've visited before. Further, we've cruised with Princess before and felt comfortable with the cruise line. Embarkation was fairly smooth. We got on the ship, found our cabin as expected (although we were disappointed that our view was obstructed), and ...

We chose it because of the itinerary, Around South America. However, on many occasions the pools were closed "under maintenance" especially on some sea days when it would have been ideal to enjoy the pool: no explanation was offered as to the issue. On this cruise of 58 days we were offered two lobster nights and only twice an offering of escargots: we expected a few more evenings with ...

We just returned from the 4 day cruise on Island 12-16/20. Shortest cruise we have ever been on. Island is a beautiful ship and the last of Princess's great mid size ships. FIRST - we walked all around deck 6 aft (which was empty of passengers) and there is NO VIBRATION! Finally it has been fixed. We did not expect a whole lot of the trip, but they put on two of the most amazing production ...

Nicer than expected Island Princess Panama Canal cruise

Took a Panama Canal cruise on the Island Princess over Thanksgiving week. Embarkation and disembarkation were a breeze (used Princess transfers). Despite the small size of the older ship, we were pleasantly surprised with the amount of activities and how much was tucked into small spaces, where there were 4 days at sea on the 10 day cruise. Definitely older ship, but turned out that we felt less ...

Panama Canal is an engineering marvel, but Cartagena is a waste of time!

We picked this cruise to mainly see the Panama Canal. EMBARKATION- Fort Lauderdale is very convenient for us because we live in Tampa. This was one of the easiest and fastest embarkation process we have experienced. We did have to wait to board the ship because the Coast Guard would not clear the ship for some reason. the other passengers that were waiting complained that Princess ran out of ...

Our cruise was made extra special because of the energy and interaction of the cruise staff members, Phil, Angela, Allie, William and Tom...led by Benny. They made us feel like we were important. They invited us to participate in activities without being intrusive nor aggressive. They were fun and funny. They were kind and encouraging. They were inclusive and interactive...not just with a ...

Great cruise, great food, great service, but mediocre entertainment.Two of the port visits were too short. No free time to wonder around the port cities. The cruise director was never seen by me or my wife. The music in the pool was mediocre to poor. No stimulating activities for the younger crowds. The shows were few(3). The port cities were great, but in Cartagena and Jamaica the port time was ...

I chose this cruise because I was helping my parents with their travels. Both are mobility challenged and I go along to assist them. A small, but great ship and the remodel was amazing. I'd like to see some highlighted maps that show how to get to the stern of the ship (Deck 8) and perhaps how to get out on the bow. (Deck 10 I believe, but I was not able to get there during the trip as it's ...
