decided to join friends who were already booked on this cruise. Panama Canal was on our bucket list so we thought "why not" There was a technical issue on embarkation which had us feeling very relieved to be Elite status as many passengers waited several hours to get on board. As it was, we did not get our cabin key cards until almost midnight on day 1. We ended getting an excellent price on the cruise by watching the sales and contacting our cruise planner when we came across a better deal. Loved our cabin - odd shape/layout but spacious and nice view. The cruise was very enjoyable, despite the current world situation. We had some very nice shore excursions: Beach getaway; Two bay snorkel; Sabana Safari adventure. Transit through the canal was cool to experience. The new production show "Rock Opera" was one of the best I have ever seen on Princess - loved all the numbers from "The Greatest Showman" All in all, a very good cruise.

Excellent cabin - would definitely look at booking it again. Only issue was the awkward tv placement.
