10 Night Roundtrip Panama Canal (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
Sail Date: January 19, 2011
Ship: Island Princess
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 7 years ago

Generally the ship is well appointed and very clean. It's a bit smaller than the giants, being of the "Panamax" class which is actually nice. Things are run in a very organized and competent fashion.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Excellent food and variety in the dining rooms. The buffet is very good as well, but still a buffet. Excellent breakfasts.

On board crew entertainers are quite good. Hypnotist show was below par. Don't miss the crew talent show where you'll see some of your waiters, etc. display their talents.

Service and Staff

Limon is very dumpy, but the tour through the rain forest and banana plantation was great.

Take the boat tour that brings you through the entire canal to the Pacific. The best.
Don't Miss: Entire canal tour.

Pros: Caliber of the personnel. Extremely competent, corteous , and friendly

Cons: Transfers to and from the ship are slow and disorganized. Take taxis, they are cheaper.
