Default Island Princess' Canal Transit, Nov '15

The Island Princess was built in '03, refitted in '10, and in for another refit next year, but still a beautiful ship. We have sailed with many cruise lines and this was the first time with Princess, and we were pleasantly surprised with "pretty-ness" factor of the ship. And the dining was first class, as the entertainment, and level of service. Some of the "wow's" were the LED outside movie screen, main atrium, and lounges... all very well done. Shore excursions were a cut above in service, and getting the details right, and the ship's staff always had a smile and greeting ready.

I can honestly say that the cruise was one of the smoothest and most pleasant voyages through the Canal in many years. And the proof: I?m Back? from the Canal | Dr. Dave (Roberts)... Destination / Special Interest Speaker

Glad you enjoyed! We sailed Island's sister ship Coral Princess this summer in Alaska. Beautiful ship. A full canal transit is on my to do list.
