October 2017 - 15 Night Panama Canal - Ocean To Ocean (Ft. Lauderdale To Los Angeles) Cruise on Island Princess
Amazing Panama Cruise
Awesome!!!!! Ship was cool. Love the indoor pool. disappointed where gym was placed - no windows while working out. Met some really great people! Weather was warm but we knew that would be the case. Ships staff was excellent. Entertainment was great. Loved the variety of entertainment.
Oranjestad, Aruba - We booked our own excursion when we got off the ship. Had a great time.
Panama Canal Transit - Awesome! The reason I went on this cruise. This was a bucket list for me. Loved every second.
Cartagena, Colombia - Loved the old part of town. We booked our own excursion and had a great time!
San Juan Del Sur, Nicaragua - We just walked around town and went through a chocolate making class. Very fun. Then had a drink at a beach restaurant. Most of the excursions were like 6-7 hours long and long time in the car or bus. Did not interest us at all.
San Pedro (Los Angeles), California - Great to be home!!!! Easy disembarkation.
Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida - We started our cruise here
Puntarenas, Costa Rica - This was our favorite port of call. We booked our own excursion and fed white monkeys bananas, went on a great river tour and saw some crocodiles super up close. Saw some great views.
Huatulco, Mexico - We went on an adventure at this port with our own taxi driver to a coffee plantation. Our longest time in a car driving over lots of hills and mountains but got to see the local life.
Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - Did our own excursion down at the board walk with some friends we made on the cruise ship. Walked along. Spent about 2 hours off the boat. I've been here before!
Island Princess - Make sure you try to make some good acquaintances.
