This 10  day Island Princess cruise was fantastic!, Excellent Food and Service.

Great entertainment. Very relaxing. Took our cruise Jan 24, only one child on board. We like children but not so much we don't have our grand children cruising with us.

One of the best if not best cruise we have taken to date. We have been about 15 to date. Happy Cruising!

Cabin / Stateroom The room was ok, shower a little small. But our cabin and bathroom was kept by the best cabin steward on the cruise!

Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida
Oranjestad, Aruba
great place to go diving
Cartagena, Colombia
Great place to shop for emaralds, do your homework in advance and negotiate!
Panama Canal (Cruise Into Canal)
This is a great place to take an excursion. The Panama Canal is the big draw here. A trip to the old town of Panama and view of Panama City(modern) is a good choice here unless you want to tour the canal in great detail.
Colon, Panama
Puerto Limon, Costa Rica
What can I say paradise found! Banana and Coffee plantations, monkees, sloths and the coastline!
George Town, Grand Cayman


We had a great time on the Island Princess, Entertainment was great, food excellent no matter where we ate! Great ports to visit, Aruba, Grand Cayman Costa Rica, Panama and Cartegna! We had the open dining and the only issue we had was we had to wait 30 min 5 times and once an hour.
