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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

Panama Canal Cruise Exceeded Expectations (19 days roundtrip from LA)

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

this is the longest cruise we have ever done. We have taken 10 previous cruises on Princess, and we really love their service The only thing I miss about this ship is the lack of the 24 hour international cafe. We had been on this ship a few years ago but the Vista lounge was removed and replaced with cabins. This did not deter our enjoyment of the ship. The cabins are standard and we ...

This is the third time we've taken this itinerary on this ship, and we enjoyed this one a lot. The only downside was that the political unrest in Nicaragua caused the ship to skip that port and substitute Ensenada, Mexico. We enjoyed all the ports, and that's the main reason we keep taking this itinerary. We love Puerto Quetzal in Guatemala, and San Juan del Sur in Nicaragua. The ship is an ...

Our mini suite was very comfortable and roomy for two ladies. The cabin room service was excellent, fast and the food was very good. Our cabin steward Gerald was always smiling, always available if we needed him. Our cabin was spotless. Dining was excellent our main dining room servers, Galin and Bernard Ombao were charming, comical and excellent servers. Many choices on Port and Shore ...
