Loved it! Would sail on it again!

Pros: Ship was great, Ports were great, Panama Canal was unforgettable!

Cons: Half day in Aruba - I would have liked a whole day there

Recommends Island Princess? Yes!

Cartagena, Colombia
It was very, very hot and we joined another couple in taking a cab to the old city. Very interesting but we might have been better off taking a ship's tour. It was very hot and we really didn't know what to see. Many street people selling aggressively!
Cristobal, Panama

Don't Miss: Take the optional transit of the Canal into the Pacific - experience of a lifetime!
Oranjestad, Aruba
I went to the beach - it was great! But I would have liked a whole day there, not just a morning.
Don't Miss: the beach!
Ocho Rios, Jamaica
We had a fabulous day at Sandals, on the beach and in the pool - all food and drink included. A great last day in port before leaving for Florida.
Don't Miss: Sandals
Puerto Limon, Costa Rica
We took the bus tour to San Jose, which was fascinating in itself but also took us out of the rain forest into the sun and we had lunch at a very lovely restaurant
