I chose this cruise because my 87 year old mom wanted to go on a cruise to see the Panama Canal where her uncle had been stationed. This was her first cruise. As a person living with a Gluten Free diet, she did have some concerns about food options. This was quickly alleviated when she found how accommodating the Staff were to her needs. The options in the Main Dining Room were superb and by ordering her food for the next day, she was relieved to know she didn’t have to not get a full dining experience. The room steward made certain she was comfortable, getting her an extra blanket and fixing her bed just the way she liked it. The Spa staff attended to her hair and nail services with such care and understanding. I must say, I have personally travelled with Princess several times and have always found the ship to be in excellent condition and the staff attentive, friendly, and courteous. But seeing how they took my mom and attended to her raised the perception in my eyes. They were committed to making certain that we came back better.
