Island Princess Cruise Review by Lucy Lucy

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Oct 2019
  • Destination: the Panama Canal & Central America
  • Cabin Type: Balcony

My girlfriend wanted us to go on this cruise with them. I figured it would be a lay back cruise because, face it, young people don’t go to Panama for a grand time. There were a LOT of elderly people on this cruise and only 25 kids out of 1900. The food was so so. The excursions we chose were pretty relaxing, except for the zipline excursion. That one was a disaster with many injuries, but with the waiver signed not much could be done except a refund. Activities on the ship were ok. The entertainment was so so. A comedian, a magician, dancers, and a pianist. Then they repeated them for the next 4 days. Check in and check out were fast. The promotional offers were great. They had milkshakes on the ship, but no straws. Staff was very very nice. Decor was nice also. Nice layout of the ship.

Cabin Review


The room was fine. Bathroom was smaller than I expected. Shower was tiny.

Amber Cove (Puerto Plata)

Did the Amber Cove, serenity VIP resort excursion. Very relaxing. Got a free 10 massage!

Learned to make 4 pieces of jewelry out of sterling silver and rough emeralds. Also had a city tour with explanations. That was very good.

Panama Railway

Thought it would be more interesting than it was. Just a train ride zooming thru the foliage and lakes.

Nice quiet cove with crystal clear water. Book your excursion early before other tour groups arrive and stir up the water.
