March 2016 - Island Princess to Panama Canal, Central America
The Panama Canal was the highlight of the cruise. It is truly a marvel of engineering. The new channel being built for larger ships is also amazing. School books and other stories about the canal do not do it justice.
In Jamaca, we recommend making your excursion plans in advance, either through the ship or BJ's travel agency. There were six ships in port with us and people booking excursions on the dock were not able to not able to do all the things they wanted, and the price at the dock were higher.
We definitely recommend this cruise for all ages.
