Island Princess

January 2018 - 15 Night Panama Canal - Ocean To Ocean (Los Angeles To Ft. Lauderdale) Cruise on Island Princess

Fantastic Experience

We had a great time on this cruise. Always something to do on the ship and was never board. One thing. The Panama Canal cruises are usually full of older people. Not like the Caribbean cruises. I am 62 years old and was in the younger 10 percent onboard.

Regal princess was very nice! Food was excellent everywhere on the ship. We had to visit the onboard doctor. Everyone in the medical unit were very nice and helpful! And the cost wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. Stops on this cruise were okay. Wifi needs to be cheaper!!!!

Emerald Princess

March 2015 - 7 Night Western Caribbean (Houston Roundtrip) Cruise on Emerald Princess

Love Cruising with Princess Great Gluten Free

this trip was the Emerald to the Western Caribbean.  As always, Princess does an excellent job.  Their service is first class and exceptional.  the pros are always fun and interesting, and there is lots to do on the ship on sea days.  They are great with kids, but it is not kid centered.  They are for the calmer passenger, not the party animal that is catered to on one of their sister lines.  The shows are always great.  I tend to be a "problem' child having to be Gluten free due to Celiac's.  I had absolutely no trouble on the Emerald this cruise ( i did one cruise, told them about it and they did a total 180--I was even able to get GF cookies delivered daily to my state room.  It says a lot about the Princess line that they responded to my request for better GF on the Emerald.  I am a Platinum card holder and have never had any problems being GF on the other ships)  The one thing I am not happy about is that they replaced their fine jewelry store, Facet's,  aboard ship with an Effy store.  You no longer get the variety of designers.  I am not a fan of Effy,  and will no longer be purchasing jewelry on the ships that do not have Facets.  We purchased several very nice items in the passed.  Now you have to go ashore to purchase Marilago, Kabana etc. :(  I actually got better deals on board.

shell43's Tips

Panama Canal Transit - Great experience. If you want to get off and do an excursion, do the partial transit that starts in FL. My husband and I did that one last year and he really enjoyed getting off the ship and doing the museum and train ride. He learned a lot more than just staying on ship and going thru the lochs
Huatulco, Mexico - Very pretty and very concerned about the safety of guests and residents alike. Unfortunately our excursion was cancelled because of extreme currents in the ocean. The harbor master would not let any boats leave the harbor for pleasure of excursions the day we were in port. It was for our safety
Oranjestad, Aruba - Aruba is Awesome. My glasses like it so much that they decided to stay. Do the snorkeling adventure
San Juan Del Sur, Nicaragua - This is a very financially poor port. all the excursions were all day excursions. There is a mile Long Beach in San Juan Del Sur and we thought we would hang on the beach—didn’t want to go 4 hours into Nicaragua. The beach is so-so. We walked along it, but did not swim
Island Princess Island Princess - It will take some getting used to if you are used to the larger ships. This one is specifically made to go thru the canal and is longer and skinnier than the others. There are 4 floors in the piazza which relocates things. Also all food is located in the front of the ship.
Crown Princess Crown Princess - Always take the steps and book a cabin in the middle floors. That way you work off more calories and can indulge in more of what you like to eat. By doing this, I never gain weight on cruises.
Coral Princess Coral Princess - Study the map if you are used to ruby, emerald, crown, regal or royal. This ship has 4 levels in the piazza/atrium area and things are set up differently
