Chose this cruise to see Panama Canal. Had the opportunity to see some South American countries for the first time. Stops at ports were a great experience for the entire family. We will take Princess Cruise again in next two years. Shore excursions were set up in an orderly manner. Easy to get on and off ship unlike Carnival that is a free for all. Free movies to watch plus we watched the news daily. Rooms extremely clean; buffet was excellent; staff service was top notch on entire ship. Checking in luggage and getting to our room was very fast. Only complaint was baggage handlers tore the hell out of one of our check off bags getting off ship. We will carry our own bags on and off ship from now on. Loved the dedicated daily night dancing on 18th deck. Great dj playing music on daily basis. The comic Bengt was worse comedian I had ever heard. He needs to get a new career. The second comedian Scott Weyler was very funny.
Best room ever. Plenty of space; bed very comfortable; room always kept clean. Lots of ice in fridge for my sprained ankle. Chocolate on pillow every night; safe worked correctly; plently of hot water. Big screen tv with lots of free movies and news to watch. Lighting was very good. A/C worked with no problems. Plenty of closet space to spare and many clothes hangers.
