10 Night Roundtrip Panama Canal (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
Sail Date: March 09, 2007
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple

The ship was very comfortable - - My personal choice would be to have a smoke free environment in the "lounges"..not a non-smoking section on the opposite side of the room - you could still smell the smoke.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
I would NOT do the Anytime Dining option again.. we had to make reservations every night in order to secure our "dining time" or we would have to wait on a very long line for a table to become available. This was not a good experience... The buffet line food selection lacked variety... we optioned for the Grill (hot dogs, hamburgers) or had pizza to vary our "lunch selection"

Entertainment

3 out of 5
Some of the shows did not meet our expectations. Two of the "review shows" were EXCELLENT but the magician and the juggler were just O.K. The pianist who played in the Theatre Lounge (Universal Theatre) was amazing...he should have been one of the "acts" featured as one of the main shows... Royal Caribbean and Celebrity outshines Princess in the area.

Dunn's River Falls were AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL and not to be missed... There were no restaurants available on this off ship excursion AND we were NOT provided with a box lunch from the ship...
Don't Miss: Dunn's River Falls

The Playa Mia Beach was NOT GOOD... it was crowded, there were NO water toys available due to the amount of people on the beach AND the buffet lunch was poor... We could have stayed a couple of hours and been fine...FOUR HOURS WAS ENTIRELY TOO LONG for us...
