Sail Date: Nov 2019
Cabin: Family Suite with Balcony

We love sailing with Princess and enjoy the traditional atmosphere and older crowd. This cruise was great except for a few issues...

Embarkation was bad from the start due to customs issues and computer problems. But I think it was just a fluke, It took several hours even for priority boarding ...They gave us free drinks on board with a nice apology for the delays.

We were a party of three staying in the family suite on dolphin deck. It was beautiful and very nicely appointed. This cabin has a large balcony at the front of the ship. Great to watch the Panama Canal and sit outside when docked. Couldn’t use it much when we were at sea due to the wind. Our room steward Jose was warm and very friendly and efficient.

Port Reviews

Cartagena (Colombia)

We took a cab at port and did a tour of the city. Very beautiful.

Fuerte Amador (Balboa)

We hired a driver in port and he took us all over the city and was an amazing guide. We walked all over, shopped, had drinks and I fell in love with this beautiful city. It was one of favorites. The history, architecture and friendly people were wonderful. Don’t miss it.

Yoyi Dominguez was our driver and I would highly recommend him. You can find him on Facebook or let me know if you need more information

Huatulco

Wonderful catamaran and Seven Bays snorkeling tour with Shore Excursioner.com. We got a late start with a no show guide, but a new guide was called and we had a great day
