Island Princess

March 2016 - Island Princess to Panama Canal, Central America

Met all of my expectations.

The canal itself is the main attraction and it is an amazing story and engineering feat. grand Cayman had some of the liveliest reefs I have seen anywhere. The ship was new and fresh in nearly everything. I do wish there was a bit more time allowed in ports, but due to travel times, this was not possible. There is enough time for excursions, but not for walking around the ports. However, walking too far off the beaten track in Colon is not recommended anyway.

benck's Tips

Oslo, Norway - No need to sign up for fjord trip. Ship sails into same one on some tours.
Regal Princess Regal Princess - If you want to use stairs, get a room either in bow or stern. No stairs in midship, only elevators. Arrive to show 20 minutes early for best seats. Try the afternoon tea!
Island Princess Island Princess - If selecting anytime dining you can still make reservation by calling shortly after 9am. Do this if you plan to dine at prime times like between 6 and 7:30PM. Sharing a table is good idea if you want to meet people.
