Review summary

This cruise was absolutely wonderful. Princess handled everything with efficiency, professionalism, and grace. We were very impressed with the entertainment, food, service, attendants, steward, decorations, staff, and crew. We went to Aruba, Columbia, Panama, (the Canal of course), Costa Rica and Jamaica, with the start and finish in Ft. Lauderdale. I recommend this cruise very highly.

We were upgraded to a cabin with a window and a partially obstructed view. We had sunlight and a wee view..... the cabin was roomy and nice with plenty of storage... closets and shelving.

Ship tip

Great soft ice cream cones at the Ice Cream shop. Loved the dance lessons on "at sea" days. The Christmas decorations in the Atrium were perfect. The entertainment was so good..... the Band, Ray Coussins at the piano, Turbin, the Dancers, The pianist (can't remember his name), the comedians...
