The Island Princess, staff, entertainment, food, everything was wonderful. Had a great time. Aruba was very nice. We were impressed by Cartagena, Columbia. It was much more modern that we realized. The Panama Canal (Partial transit) was great - with a historian speaking about it as we went. The only minor issues were that since the Island Princess has to be small enough to fix through the Panama Canal locks, the largest theater was a bit small to hold half the guests at one time, and there was a wait for the 'any time' dining. But we planned ahead, got in line early, so we were able to eat and see the shows when we wanted. The showers are tiny.   The Stateroom was great, bed was very comfortable. It was nice having a mini refrigerator in our room.  We did not go on an excurion in Costa Rica, but walked around the wonderful Tourist/craft center in the cruise ship port area. They do have nice stuff at good prices.
