Ship Facts: Island Princess Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Island Princess Deck Plans
Poor Princess
We have traveled with Princess enough to be considered platnum members of the Captain's Circle. Had this cruise been our first with Princess, it would have been our last. The experience was disappointing to say the least.

In particular the food was the worst I have ever tasted on a cruise. The food was particularly bad in the Horizon buffet, and only marginally better in the dining room. Generally the offerings were overly salted, meats were tough and tasteless (hence the need for salt), bland and boring. As a result we found ourselves eating in the speciality restaurants for a number of our dinners.

The entertainment was so-so. Rather short production numbers, lip-syncing singers, and shows that seemed to be cobbled together at the last minute.

Our cabin was fine, as well as our Cabin Steward. We had a mini-suite, mid ship on Dolphin Deck. Easy access to the elevators and stairs.

The general feeling that I got from the cruise was that I was a captive consumer, and that the cruise line was determined to sell me something. Teeth whitening, acupuncture, the newest thing in a semi-precious stone that I never heard of (zultanite,kryptonite,dynamite,whatever.

Princess what have they done to you?
