  3. Island Princess
We had never been to Columbia and this cruise stopped in Cartagena, as well as a half transit of the Panama Canal. The Island Princess is well maintained and our cabin was comfortable. The service and food were good, although I thought the quality of the service in the Horizon Court had slipped somewhat. We had an excellent meal in the Italian specialty restaurant. Entertainment in evening was good with dynamic production shows. At sea days could have used more lectures during the day. There was too much emphasis on selling art as a substitute for entertainment. The ship's tour in Cartagena was interesting, although the guide managed ti loose us, causing a minor panic. Our Canal transit was interesting as the new locks were being constructed and some of it was visible. Since we had been to the other ports before, we just strolled around the ports area and had lunch ashore.
