Island Princess

December 2014 - Island Princess to Panama Canal, Central America

Cruising aboard the Island Princess

This was our first time aboard a Princess cruiseline ship.  We have traveled extensively with other cruiselines, with one in particular.  We were very impressed with Princess from the time we got on board to the day the cruise ended and we disembarked.  Everything was run very orderly and in record time.  The ship itself was lovely and beautifully decorated for Christmas. There were plenty of activities if you cared to take advantage of them.  We enjoy dancing and the two Lounges that we frequented were perfect for us.  The shows/entertainment were first class, fresh and updated.  The waitstaff in the dining rooms were very attentive to your needs and very personable and professional.  They didn't entertain you as on other cruiselines.  All and all, we will definitely cruise with Princess again in the future.

Naples189's Tips

Oranjestad, Aruba - Love Aruba, hired a taxi to take us to our favorite eating place to dine and have fun, Senior' Frogs. Unfortunately, it was the day after Christmas and a lot of the local venues were closed so no Senor' Frogs, instead we wound up eating in town at Iguana Joe's, which had good food/drink and a short walking distance to the ship.
Puerto Limon, Costa Rica - Hired our own Taxi, got a driver who spoke very good English and received a wonderful tour of the island.
Cartagena, Colombia - Made the mistake of hiring our own taxi to take us around. The driver could hardly speak English let alone understand. Made sure that he stopped at his local shops. The people are very pushy. Will make sure not part of another cruise itinerary and if it is, will stay onboard.
Colon, Panama - Nothing to see here, just got picked up by the ship after out Panama City tour.
Island Princess Island Princess - We opted for Anytime Dining. When we got to our assigned dining room the first night, we were asked if we had a reservation, answered no and received a gizzmo that lights up when it's time to be seated. Did not realize you had to make reservations for a certain time. Will opt for late dining!
