We were a group of eight cruise age people, meaning seniors, ranging from 72 to 75, one in wheelchair and one mobility challenged using a walker. The draw of this cruise was the itinerary, which turned out to be more challenging than ... Read more

My age 61, travelling with my 62 year old partner, my 90 year old Dad and my 33 year old son, who has learning difficulties. This was our 16th cruise, but first with Princess, so I was excited to experience a different cruise line, and was ... Read more

We set sail from Venice on 14th October. We were at the rear of the ship in cabin C716, I agree with other contributors about the vibration particularly at night, more of a nuisance when it occurred, especially at night. Our steward was ... Read more

We originally booked one of the new stern cabins, but after reading some of the early reviews decided to move. We booked B615 on Baha deck and had no trouble with the engine vibration(s). Embarkation: went smoothly - until we received ... Read more

The ports of call on this cruise were great. Our experience on the ship was just ok. This was the first cruise for my husband and me, so perhaps our expectations were too high, but we both thought some things could have been so much ... Read more

We did the 12 day Mediterranean Cruise on the Island Princess which sailed from Barcelona on Oct. 1st and ended in Venice. The itinerary was great with only 2 port days. Since this was our first time in Europe, we booked everything ... Read more

We spent a delightful three nights in Venice before our cruise. We stayed at the Hotel Olimpa. Good location near water taxis. Great breakfast and nice canal side location. The ship was older but recently redone and nice enough. We ... Read more

Princess changed our port days and times, which in Istanbul, turkey on their highest holy day of the year. Naturally, this found business closed and limited available shore excursions. No explanations given to passengers on why this was ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the itinerary. It was our first cruise so had nothing to compare it to and no idea what to expect from Princess. Overall, we were impressed and will definitely cruise again. Majority of the passengers were Brits ... Read more

Would do this cruise again in a heart beat. The ports for this itinerary is exactly what we were looking for and the reason for booking this cruise. Venice over night, Athens, Istanbul, Mykonos, Naples, Rome, Florence, Toulon, ... Read more

This was a port-intensive, wonderful cruise. The selection of ports, although we had been to most a few times before, was perfect. We especially enjoyed Istanbul. We booked a couple of our own excursions but used the Princess shore ... Read more

September 2015 proved to be the ideal time to cruise the Med on the Island Princess, as the ship had been refurbished in April 2015 and the weather was perfect. Having travelled on eight of the other Princess ships, we would now rate this ... Read more

Sailed from Seattle for a 7 night Cruise to Alaska. Overall enjoyed our cruise. Weather could have been a little kinder. Nice destinations, Skagway being my favourite, Ketchikan a close second. It would have got my first vote, but only ... Read more

We really enjoyed this cruise especially the sail out of Venice. I have sailed into and out of Venice with Princess before and it's a real delight - do it while you can, it may not always be an option with the potential sinking of Venice! ... Read more

This was my fourth cruise with Princess and fifth cruise overall. We are an active couple, ages 46 and 55. I was a bit worried about sailing on the Island Princess after the refit, but the overall changes were not something that really ... Read more

We originally looked at taking a bus tour through Europe, but if you only have a short time and want to see a lot of places, a port intensive cruise is the way to do it! Get waited on hand and foot, go to bed in the same room every night, ... Read more

I have just returned from a pleasant cruise aboard Island Princess, Aug 2-14. The voyage was excellent, but exhausting what with visits ashore on 9 days. On the whole the staff was accommodating and cheerful. Special mention should be ... Read more
