15 Night Panama Canal - Ocean To Ocean (Ft. Lauderdale To Los Angeles)
Sail Date: January 20, 2015
Ship: Island Princess
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: B706
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 3 years ago

I have cruised  on the Island Princess before.  It was very obvious how greedy the cruise business is getting.  The food selection at the buffet was  minimal.  I had told the Sartins , who traveled with us,  not to bring Q-tips and cotton balls. Got to our cabin and  had neither of either.  Will not take this ship, and seriously will think twice about Princess Cruises.

Robert was good at the room. Ceaser was to keep us warm. Even gave us table cloths to keep us warm.. The dining room is always too cold.
