We really enjoyed the ship and the layout of the ship except for the theater. There were only 2 entrances to the theater and it was necessary to walk down to seats. However, this is probably due to ship being narrower in order to get through the Panama Canal. The size and selections in library was great and the library was well used. It is unfortunate that newer ships seem to be reducing the size and selections in the library. It was nice not to have to walk through the casino to go to other areas of the ship. The entertainment was good but we especially liked the movies under the stars and having an afternoon movie in the theater. The food was good. Our cabin steward was the best we have had on any cruise. It is nice that Princess continues to have church services on Sunday. There was a guest lecturer who gave a history of each port a couple of days before arrival in port and provided informative information as we were going through the Panama Canal. This was very much a plus in learning about the countries and ports we were visiting.

Geat cruise. Loved the ship

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

    Costa Rica's Favorites with Lunch was an outstanding excersion. The boat ride and rain forest gondola ride were absolutely great and we had fantastic guides. The traditional Costa Rican lunch was excellent. This is an excersion we would definitely do again. The Britt tin of cocoa makes fabulous hot chocolate and is well worth the purchase price in Costa Rica. Costa Rican coffee is very good and much less expensive than Jamaican coffee.
