10 Night Roundtrip Panama Canal (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
Sail Date: April 05, 2013
Ship: Island Princess
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 5 years ago

very enjoyable except the average age was very high (70's). It would have been nice to know that before I booked. The ship was very quiet after 9pm. It would have been much more fun to have a younger group who stayed up past 9pm and danced or did Karaoke. Also the pool deck was very boring, only a couple of activities in 10 days and the band only played for a short time each afternoon. The rest of the time they had video of nature or wildlife with spa type relaxation music. That was way to sedate and boring for my taste.
