Island Princess Cruise Review by gearshift
- Sail Date: March 2012
- Destination: Panama Canal & Central America
- Cabin Type: Balcony
The passing through the canal was nothing short of awesome! Cost Rica was beautiful (we did the tram through the rain-forest.....Princess booking, (overpriced) In Grand Cayman we also did a Princess booking for over $100.00 a piece for two snorkeling stops and one swim with the stingrays. When I got home, the company that took us on this excursion gets $44.00/person.
So......book your excursions on line. Just make sure you get back to the ship on time.
This was our first 10 day cruise and I am convinced that 7 days is not long enough. We had a balcony on RC two years ago and that's the only way to go for the extra money. (unless you can afford a suite)
To wrap it up, the food was OK, main Dining Room menus could have been better. Additionally, the two shows that we saw in the Princess Theater were very good but the entertainment could have been more varied. (They kept repeating shows throughout the cruise)
Port & Shore Excursion Reviews
Dunn's River FallsWe were very happy with this due to the fact that my wife and i were the only ones on this tour climbing the falls. We had our own personal guide. We saw the crows from the princess excursion holding hands trying to get up the falls. They must have had a line of 80 people!View All 183 Dunn's River Falls Reviews
