  • Destination: the Panama Canal & Central America

My husband and I took this cruise through the Panama Canal to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. It was our 12th cruise, 3rd with Princess. We booked Ezair for the first time as we were flying from Boston to LA on the day of the cruise and it worked perfectly. There were pros and cons with the ship.


Clean ship

Friendly staff

Wash stations at Horizon Court

Silverware at tables at Horizon

Good coffee

Can walk all the way around on Promenade deck

Good Entertainment

Great weather!


Ship older and design confusing.

Doors need to be manually opened going outside instead of opening automatically.

Shower tiny (but good water pressure)

The pools had no shallow end and there were no lifeguards.

Movies under the Stars-movies were shown during the day which took away from relaxing pool time. They were very loud.

The ports were all new to us except Puerta Vallarta where we took a taxi to Malecon. All other ports we booked Princess excursions and enjoyed them. The only complaint was we were not given a bottle of water on the excursions. It was very hot and it should have been included.

The Canal experience was very interesting and you really could feel the boat going up and down in the locks.

We enjoyed the cruise and seeing some new ports of call. There were quite a few sea days which made for a very relaxing vacation.
