Island Princess

January 2019 - 10 Night Panama Canal With Costa Rica & Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip) Cruise on Island Princess

All in All, A Wonderful Cruise

All in all, a wonderful cruise. My biggest frustration lay with the timing of dining in conjunction with evening activities. Great one time activities were scheduled during the 7:30 dining times (which were sluggish) and the activities weren’t repeated so all could participate. Reportedly “Anytime Dining” was a disaster for guests. Calling to reserve a table at 8:00 each morning for dinner was allowed for “Anytime Dining” but at 8:05 slots were filled, leaving guests with the only option of going to the buffet. Yuck! Definitely pick a dining time. Accept that you’ll miss some things and then kick back and enjoy the experience.

Cruise tips

Cartagena, Colombia

FABULOUS excursion, “Cartagena City Tour” booked through Ship Mate. (Often see Benny’s name as a guide) Also available through Trip Advisor. Saw lots of things. Guide very knowledgeable, and we felt very safe in her company. Only 6 of us on the tour. Great price for that kind of service.

Puerto Limon, Costa Rica

Took an excursion through Ship Mate, “Jungle Cruise and Zip Line Adventure Combo.” Also had time for a quick stop at a beach and to grab a drink. 59 years old, I’m sold on zip lining!

Ocho Rios, Jamaica

Cloudy and overcast, can’t fault Ocho Rios. Did dampen the day a bit, though! Did Resort Day Pass at Jewels Dunn River Beach. Booked through Ship Mate, as Princess was much more expensive. I fell in love with the floating platform in the water.

Cartagena, Colombia

"Cartegena City Tour" booked through this site was fabulous. Pretty much a private tour, as there were only 6 of us on the tour! We saw all the sites while learning much about the city and feeling safe because of our experienced tour guide. Unconditionally, I would recommend this tour!
