Took a full ship tour for the $150 price, absolutely worth it. All staff were marvelous, every one. Shore excursions excellent, well worth the $ Panama Canal itself was a wonder to behold and experience. Bill Fall, the lecturer was terrific. Food very good

Worst ship I have ever been on! by eileenforrest

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group

Staff at passenger services was not helpful at all. Constantly had to go back to get issues resolved. Paid for room decorations in advance. They were not delivered and after multiple discussions with them, they were finally set up. No card was attached so recipient never knew who they came from. Specialty dinner was messed up and our complementary bottle of wine (set up by Princess) was not even a wine the ship carried. Offered a different brand at no charge and then was charged. A lot of cruisers had their bills messed up. A Nightmare.

Amazing to see the Panama Canal by pcocozza

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

This cruise was amazing. Sole purpose of cruise was to see the Panama Canal. However, most of the passengers were much older (65+). Alot of walkers and scooters and cranky old people. Entertainment staff was amazing, however, the activities were very short. Nothing for more than 1/2 hour, regardless if the crowd was having fun and enjoying themselves. They would have a full room of dancing and partying only to stop and change gears to the next scheduled thing which was usually a quieter activity.

Good but not great by gpmilleson

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

This was our fifth cruise on Princess. We were very disappointed with their service particularly in the dining room. When boarding I was told I could buy the premium beverage package on the first or second day. When I went to purchase it on the second day, I was told the employee told me incorrectly and they refused to sell it to me. I tallied my expenditures for beverages and It cost me an extra $150 over the cost of the package. All they could say is "we are sorry". They should have made the exception since I was mislead.

Panama Canal Cruise by 2baldwins

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Overall a good cruise. Very relaxing and we really enjoyed the food in the buffet. Food in the dining rooms Provence and Bordeaux was good but the service was slow and took almost 2 hours to complete a meal. Entertainment was good but the bed was too soft and the pillows too large.

enjoyable first cruise ever! by kathybrichards

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Very much enjoyed our first cruise on Island Princess from LA to Ft Lauderdale. We were surprised by the variety of activities offered. Most enjoyable: night entertainment in the Princess Theatre (very professional), lectures on Canal history and other topics, our accessible stateroom which very nicely accommodated my husband's needs.

Our Voyage of the Glaciers Cruise in early September was AWESOME!! Saw lots of wildlife & weather was sunny & dry. Bald eagles, Brown bears, Alaskan mountain goats, Sea Otters, Seals, Beluga Whales. If you want to see lots of glaciers as well, go on this cruise. You won't be disappointed!! ;-)

The Weather was awesome despite the horror stories shared from others, they spoke of bugs and other insects that would be intolerable. I found nothing like that to be true. We enjoyed the Cruise immensely from day 1 until the day we had to leave. by edwardtjackson

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The idea of traveling to Alaska was foreign to us for many reasons, the myths surrounding cold unbearable weather, rain, insects and a host of other insane comments over the years from folks....that was phony baloney . I was amazed at how affordable the vacation package was and the list of excursions that was being offered. We didn't do everything, but boy we did had a blast, the Helicopter ride to Mendenhall Glacier, Dog sledding, Ziplining and the unforgettable Bear hiking through the forest was funny yet extremely entertaining. Thanks Island Princess

Amazing Glaciers by jilweidman

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Overall a nice trip. The food was not the quality of other cruise ships we have been on. We had to send back a few meals. Also we got cold food that was supposed to be hot. The staff in the sit down dinning was not friendly some actually seemed angry or unhappy. The man that attended our room was excellent.
