FIRST NIGHT WAS VERY DIFFICULT, THEN SMOOTH SAILING by lindagardn

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Island Princess / Destination: Panama Canal, Central America

the first night at 2 am we discovered the cabin was flooded, very frightening. My brother's cabin was next door, also impacted by the flood, also moved. We were moved twice which took an evening and the entire morning the next day. We were offered a small sum for compensation. We had another major problem on a Holland America cruise last year. Both lines under the same parent company. The Princess cruise improved after 1 1/2 days. All in all, I think I will consider another cruise company next trip. I travel on cruises 20+ days per year.

A Great Trip to the Panama Canal by dad70

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Island Princess / Destination: Panama Canal, Central America

Overall, this was a great cruise. We enjoyed many of the activities on the ship, especially the entertainment, and we enjoyed our three excursions. We would hesitate to recommend this trip to others.

Great Panama Canal Cruise by Guinness

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Island Princess / Destination: Panama Canal, Central America

It was a great cruise where the places visited stood out. The ship was nice as was the food. Just not particularly memorable. Crew could've been more friendly...

engineering marvel by nekrum68

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Island Princess / Destination: Panama Canal, Central America

Ship has been revamped and it seems to favor the people with suites and high end cabins. Public address system is not very good, hard to understand. We miss the happy hour at Crooners.

Could have been better by rclarkfl

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Island Princess / Destination: Panama Canal, Central America

Given the issues with no chairs in the stateroom, the small showers, and the generally slow dining room service, I doubt that we will book this ship again

Once-in-a-lifetime cruise through the Panama Canal by jnscons

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Island Princess / Destination: Panama Canal, Central America

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

Terrible Cruise by LadyJerry

Ship: Island Princess / Destination: Panama Canal, Central America

One of the worst cruises I have taken. The noise in the bathroom, the awful smell, the tiny bathroom. I have take many better cruises.

Just ok. by jjnewmex3443

Sail date: / Traveled as: Large Group
Ship: Island Princess / Destination: Panama Canal, Central America

The staffing was phenomenal. My cabin steward, Ephraim, was very attentive and professional and friendly. Horizon restaurant staff were extremely attentive and pleasant. A Ms. Bazana (from Serbia) was always a welcome site in the mornings when I went in for breakfast.

Worst ship I have ever been on! by eileenforrest

Sail date: / Traveled as: Large Group
Ship: Island Princess / Destination: Panama Canal, Central America

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

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Island Princess / Destination: Panama Canal, Central America

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

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Island Princess / Destination: Panama Canal, Central America

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

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Island Princess / Destination: Panama Canal, Central America

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.
