Island Princess Cruise Review to Panama Canal, Central America
Overall it was a nice cruise. This was our first on Princess. Although I thought Princess was nice, I like RC better. Much older crowd on Princess. Could be due to this being a 15 day cruise. Ports were ok, Canal was awesome. We had a Junior Suite and it was very nice. Large Tub with Shower is a must. Service in Dinning Room and Horizon Buffet was lacking. Dinner's were stretched out for 2.5 hours and trying to get someone to give you a drink or silverware in buffet was always a problem. Some days they ran out of clean dishes which caused long back ups. Bar service was very good, especially around the pools. I liked the free ship WIFI that allowed you to message anyone aboard and provided a schedule of activities as well as ship board expenses right on your phone. On board activities were somewhat lacking and this could be because of the age group. Lots of wheel chairs which caused long lines on excursions. No offense, but they really need to separate the excursions into two groups, those that have mobility and those that do not.
