My husband and I have been talking about going to see the Panama Canal since our first cruise to Alaska in 2006. We have finally retired and decided on the Christmas Cruise to the Eastern Carribean and Panama Canal on Island Princess. She is the sister ship of our Alaskan cruise ship Coral Princess so she was familiar in layout. We stayed in a local hotel the night before the cruise and ...

We just returned from the 4 day cruise on Island 12-16/20. Shortest cruise we have ever been on. Island is a beautiful ship and the last of Princess's great mid size ships. FIRST - we walked all around deck 6 aft (which was empty of passengers) and there is NO VIBRATION! Finally it has been fixed. We did not expect a whole lot of the trip, but they put on two of the most amazing production ...

We wanted the experience of the Panama Canal and also the longer cruise time. We were not disappointed at all. I had read some reviews of this ship that were far from favorable so I was pleasantly surprised by how much we enjoyed this ship. It is cozy and I loved the enclosed pool area with it's relaxing padded loungers and "Zen" type quiet music. Perfect for reading and napping. The pool ...

I was a little nervous about this cruise - especially the ship - because of all the crap reviews I had read on cruise critic about it being beat up, old, blah blah blah. Fake news! I actually really liked this cruise. The Island is not brand new but it’s in decent shape. And it also has character, lots of places to escape with a good book, nooks and crannies etc. It did not seem crowded at ...

Have been on Princess before (same ship actually) and liked them and the itinerary was exactly what we were looking for. Considering we were traveling out of country, emabarkation and disembarkation was as well organized and efficient as could be expected. We chose anytime dining and food in the dining room was generally good, as was the buffet for other meals. Steward was excellent and all ...

We wanted to experience the Panama Canal, but didn't want to go through the ENTIRE lock system. We've been through 68 locks in Europe on our Viking Amsterdam to Budapest River Cruise in June of 2016. That was our BEST VACATION EVER also! This cruise was for our 54th Anniversary and my wife's 74th Birthday and we wanted to just relax and enjoy life. As usual all of the excursions were ...

We chose this cruise to celebrate our 27th anniversary and my wife wanted to see the Panama Canal. One of the ports took us to Cartagena and it was a beautiful experience. This was our first trip to Columbia and to South America. We also got a round trip ticket to the place called Hell in the Cayman Islands. LOL. No one-way ticket there for me. This was our 9th cruise and I can tell you that ...

Island Princess is the perfect ship

At somewhere around 90K gross tons, but only as many passengers as some of the smaller ships, we never felt crowded. It was an itinerary focused on the older crowd and younger cruisers and families should take note that this may not be the right fit for their late night desires in activities. It’s less about high intensity onboard activity than other Cruise lines and more about the destination. ...

We boarded the Island Princess in Vancouver. The Vancouver port is beautiful, but the embarkation process is spread out throughout the terminal. You went from one end to another end and back which didn't seem very efficient. It was very organized just not efficient. In my opinion, the ship itself was the perfect size for an Alaska cruise, small and intimate. We had an aft balcony suite ...

This cruise was chosen because the Inside Passage cruise has been a bucket list item for many years. It totally exceeded our expectations. The Island Princess was extremely accommodating with great passenger to staff ratio. The staff and crew were fantastic, and were genuinely happy to attend to our needs. The balcony cabin was excellent, and maintained extremely well. Each Port entry was handled ...
