Island Princess Cruise Review by joe blow123456789

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

We had good experiences with Princes before, not this time.

What can I say, fire alarm in the cabin going off every time we took a shower, the phone ringing 20 times afterwards telling us, then people at our door. We finally got moved after 5 days of this, but it took the fun out of our cruise already.

The food was mediocre at best, but it seems all cruise lines are just not getting it food wise anymore.

We really didn't't get very good info on some of our excursions and one got part of it cancelled, the best part and only a 50% refund

The shows were really good, the best part of the cruise

Dancing was non existent.

One needs to really check out what you are buying excursion wise before you pay, some are really worthless, Hop on Hop off in Cartengena - don't do it, another took us up a dirty, smelly river for an hour.
