15 Night Panama Canal - Ocean To Ocean (Ft. Lauderdale To Los Angeles)
Sail Date: March 24, 2016
Ship: Island Princess
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: A628
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 2 years ago

Princess misses the mark on this cruise!  They are only in Aruba for a few hours and in Nicaragua for an entire day.  Cartegena's Hop On Hop Off was the best bang for the buck but it was really hot and the bus is not air conditioned.  The canal was great and Chris Roberts, cruise port expert, was excellent as he talked us through the entire canal.  I wish we had had another port in the Caribbean and not so many sea days on the Pacific side.

The bed in A628 was super comfy but the chairs showed worn spots and the veranda was not very clean.
