Very enjoyable Panama Canal Round Trip

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, ...

Our last Princess cruise

We chose the Panama Canal cruise because it was on our bucket list. The itinerary was great. We felt the cruise was overbooked, understaffed and over priced. Everything on board was pricey - excursions, drinks, ...

A cruise to be remembered!

We picked this cruise to avoid a cross country flight and for more sea days than port days. Then we added on the three day run down from Vancouver to L.A. just for the sea days. So, for us a 22 day cruise, still ...

Awful Island Princess

The ship was a mess. The front desk staff, particularly one man, was combative, argumentative and rude. I asked to buy two stamps on the 3rd day of the cruise and he told me they didn't have any because they had ...

It never ceases to amaze me what global complainers we've become. And some of the occasional flack I've seen aimed at the Island Princess makes me wonder whether I've been on the same ship. Cards on the table! My ...
