We chose this cruise in order to experience the Panama Canal transit. We were welcomed at the airport and transported to the ship. Embarkment processing was completed within five minutes and disembarking from ship to shore was completed within 15 minutes. Our cabin stewart did an amazing job as well as our dining waiter. The meals were great and the main show each evening kept you well ...

We have completed a Coastal California cruise previously and had such a nice time we wanted to take the cruise again. We loved the Island Princess. It is a smaller ship but great for those cruisers who like to meet people and enjoy a smaller ship experience. Lots of wood used which made it seem warm and inviting. Entertainment was really good with a standing ovation one night for one ...

This Was a Very Nice Cruise (15 Day Panama Canal)

All port excursions (all booked through Princess) were great. The Aromas and Flavors of Cartagena was a bit shorter than we expected, but the food was great. I recommend the balcony dinner for two (stead and lobster) and save your appetite. They serve you a lot of food! The cost is $99. There is a service provided at disembarkation to have your luggage picked up on your last day and ...

We truely enjoyed the Panama Canal transit experience from Pacific Ocean to Atlantic Ocean. We had a balcony room on deck 11 (Baja) in mid ship area. The room was comfortable although we found the mattress a little bit soft to our liking. The room steward did a good service making us feel like home every day. He always open the door for us when he is near our room. Princess crews did a ...

I wrote how great the shore excursion in Victoria at Craigdarroach Castle was, how we'd done Butchart x2, how great the food at Horizon Court was, how we seldom got to restuarants even tho so pretty cuz loved buffet so much! The sea was rockier than expected so didn't get much sleep, glad of entertainment. Best was Amethyst Trio wAlex & 2 violinists, wowza! Staff was great, esp Leo our ...

I am self employed and booked this trip a couple days before departure, treating it as a working vacation with a change of scenery. Traveling alone, I just wanted to eat, sleep, and work (mostly reading). By all accounts, it was a success. Shows/Events/Bars/Casino/Internet/Pools/Excursions: Didn’t do a single one, so can’t comment. Staff: There was definitely a language barrier for many of ...

This was our first time taking a short cruise (4 days), to our surprise, it felt like a 2 week cruise. Perhaps the short time forces us to enjoy every minute of it, and we really did. The short cruise eliminated the formal nights which was great because it had meant less things to pack, less things to change, less time spent getting ready to eat. I've been to many cruises, but this was the ...

Cruised with 2 other best friend couples. Itinerary of Ports changed as Nicaragua had protests. Ensenada, MX was replacement port. Island Princess current layout with no aft night club/lounge makes not enough venues for public gatherings/activities. Cruise staff were friendly and available for Q&A. Carpet bowling was a big success 25 to 28 participants. Lecturer Bob Perlow "Warm up Guy" was ...

Overall fantastic experience. During sea days we enjoyed Zumba by the outdoor pool, ping pong in the Lotus courtyard, laps around the Promenade and upper decks (can make a full circuit on Promenade via brief indoor corridor), reading books from the ship's library, gym, games during Teen Center open house hours, and some organized events. We saw dolphins and sea turtles from the ship. For most of ...

Who chose this cruise as it was easy for us to get to LA from Honolulu. We have already done a Ocean to Ocean transit and wanted to try this cruise. We had been on the Island Princess prior to her retro fit. We chose cabin C731, the last mini suite on the Caribe deck. We looked forward to the sea days as those are our favorite. The cabin we chose has been reviewed as a "noisy" cabin and we ...
