10 Night Roundtrip Panama Canal (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
Sail Date: November 09, 2011
Ship: Island Princess
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 6 years ago
The Panama Canal excursion was unfortunate. You're not allowed off the ship unless you take their trip. The price was too high for a bus ride thru a rainforest. The food promised turned out to be one muffin. Worst of all, it took forever to let passengers back on the boat.

The Health club was adequately equipped, but completely unattended (staff were in another room, conducting classes). They also need to provide charts to keep track of exercises.

3 of the numbers ("Superstition," Liberace review and staff's "If I Could Not Go to Sea") were brilliant.
