If you want to go back in time to the days of relaxation and finding yourself this is the ship. Now the staff never called me by name. BUT, they knew who we were. Always greeting us with smiles. The staff was super friendly and always ... Read more

A relatively small ship cruise with room to roam on ship; it has less fun multi-deck water slides, surfboards and similar, but more in every other way. Crew was fantastic, always present if you needed something, never in the way if you ... Read more

Island Princess Ship Review A mixed review; our 15 Day Panama Canal cruise (with Panama overnight) cruise was great and we really enjoyed ourselves, except for the disaster of a cabin we had. More about the cabin later. The cruise is ... Read more

This was our fourth cruise overall and the second with Princess. The full Canal Transit was our main reason for going, which left few options in our choice of ship. Complaints have been made here about the Island Princess, but on the whole ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary, in particular, the full transit of the Panama Canal, as well as the other stops. By far, the Panama Canal transit was the highlight of the trip. Make sure you get up real early and are in ... Read more

I loved the size of this ship. Yes, it's a little older, but the minor issues were not enough to make a difference. One of the issues was not with the ship, but with Princess. Anytime dining, is not really "anytime dining" ... Read more

Chose this cruise to revisit the Panama Canal. Itinerary was okay beyond that - too short a stay at a favorite island - Aruba - 7:30 am - noon. Not even enough time to go to one of my favorite beaches - Eagle Beach. Now about the ... Read more
