The Panama Cruise was very interesting to us all(three couples), the itinerary was just as expected, varied and very interesting. The embarkation was a breeze, they let us on the ship as soon as we arrived at the port so we could relax, eat and have a drink. Our rooms were ready by 11:30 and we had our luggage waiting for us in the rooms. The disembarkation went just a smoothly, a well oiled machine. The ship being a little smaller was great, never any crowds, the crew and staff very friendly and helpful. Dining room staff in particular were very warm and a pleasure to see and talk to each night. Our room steward Cathy offered to unlock our adjoining balcony doors every day at noon and relocated them around seven pm while we were in the dining room. This enabled us all to share a glass of wine every evening before going to our dining room. We all thought the smaller ship to be an advantage, the service, entertainment and food were hard to beat. She’s a very comfortable ship, you won’t be sorry. We would sail on this beauty again, anytime.

The nightly ship entertainment in the Princess Theatre was just fantastic.

Cabin Review

Balcony
Cabin BA
Very reasonable size, my wife found the clothing storage more than ample, the bathroom was sufficient, very comfortable bed and a reasonable balcony with a triple A view, it was always nicely made up by our steward every time we returned to it, we felt truly spoiled.
