15 Night Panama Canal - Ocean To Ocean (Ft. Lauderdale To Los Angeles)
Sail Date: March 24, 2016
Ship: Island Princess
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Cabin Number: P515
Traveled As: Couple

Great cruise.  Would have rated excellent if the food in the dining room had been better.  Since Princess engaged Curtis Stone as their top chef, the menu selection and the preparation has not been up to the past.  We enjoy the dining room and prefer not to eat in the Horizon Court for dinner; however, sometimes, we were forced to do so.  The service in the dining room was outstanding.


We were disappointed that this itinerary did not include Panama City as a port of call.

The service in our stateroom was outstanding. Our steward was efficient, friendly, and very helpful.

Ship Tip

Don't expect too much from the quality and preparation of the food for dinner in the dining room.

We have been Aruba many times; however, would have enjoyed more time there than the four hour-stop.
