Island Princess, from Princess Cruises, was custom built to sail through the Panama Canal, however the cruise ship also takes passengers throughout the Caribbean and the Pacific Coast. Catering to 2,200 guests, it features 16 decks, 987 guest cabins and 900 crew members, and was recently refurbished in May 2015.
Itineraries range from 7-night voyages throughout the Pacific Coast to 22-night journeys of the Panama Canal and more. Popular ports of call include Puerto Vallarta, San Francisco, Vancouver, Grand Cayman and Astoria. Shore excursions offer everything from relaxed walking tours to adventures, such as experiencing an Atlantis Submarine in Grand Cayman and a suspension bridge tour in Vancouver.
