Great if you have kids or are a huge Disney fan

Room Type: Oceanview

We wanted to do a full transit of the Panama Canal and Disney was the only choice.  The entertainment was frequently Disney music (the Golden Mickey's, Toy Story, the Musical, Dreams) which is really well done but a little repetitive for me.  Kids had lots to choose from.  The trivia games for the adults were often Disney related and even their version of wheel of fortune was all related to Disney.  The Captain that did all. The lectures on the ship about the canal, land, people, ect of Panama was excellent.  The service was outstanding, food was good but Princess is better. We didn't like the assigned dining rooms and times but loved the servers and how much they spoiled us.  The room was very nice with the split bathroom and cute little bathtub.  



Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Pizza was gross but there were other options.
Cabin / Stateroom
Service and Staff
I was told that many acts cancelled the day of the cruise and they had to work hard to get replacement acts. Some of them were not top tier, others were really good.
Children's Programs No kids with us
Onboard Activities
Many choices, too many related to Disney, but that is what most people wanted.
Destinations and Excursions
Not anyone's fault but 2 ports were skipped because of hurricanes.
San Diego, California
