11 Night Panama Canal Partial Transit (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
Sail Date: January 20, 2014
Ship: Island Princess
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: A215
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 4 years ago

We thought the ship was well maintained although old.  The food was delicious and the service great except for the passenger service desk.  The on-shore excursions from Princess left a great deal to be desired and the prices were too high.  We got a better deal on excursions through our travel agent.  Of the 4 excursions we had only one where the guide was knowledgeable about the area.  That wasan excursion from Greenway in Costa Rica.

Ship Tip

Get to the auditorium early if you want to see a show.
Book your excursion through a travel agent before the cruise. Better excursions at a better price.
