We boarded the Island Prince on December 20th for a full transit of the Panama Canal. The Island Princess is beautiful ship. She will benefit from her upcoming dry dock in terms of some cosmetics, but the layout is very good. There are lots of open spaces to relax and it never seemed very crowded, no small feat considering our cruise was a "sold out" Christmas cruise. We had a mini-suite on the aft Dolphin Deck. It was spacious and the balcony was excellent. We had four chairs and a table and lots of privacy. When weren't in port we spent most of our time sitting on the balcony enjoying the warm sea air. Our cabin steward was excellent and was eager to please. The dining was excellent. We had the Traditional late seating and thoroughly enjoyed the food, service, and our table mates. We did the Chef's Table which was an outstanding experience. We had an Ultimate Balcony dinner, which was worth every penny. We also ate in the Bayou, but weren't all that impressed with the service. We are a couple in our early 50s and we weren't sure we would like cruising but the Island princess changed our minds. We had a fabulous time!
