Ship Facts: Island Princess Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Island Princess Deck Plans
Alaskan Cruise

I've read numerous reviews regarding the Island Princess, its appearance, its staff, the quality and variety of food available; both in the dining rooms and at the Horizon Court Buffet.

I wonder if the less than positive comments have come from people who have sailed on a different ship than I did.

For 14 days from Labor Day through September 16, 2013 our family was pampered and spoiled by the most incredible staff of professionals anyone could hope to come across. We did not find the "rust" or dated appearances that others seem to notice. We were on a ship that while not brand new was certainly not old by any sense of the word. Nor was it nothing but a huge floating resort with 20 swimming pools and too many specialty restaurants to describe that moved from port to port during the night. It was as accurately described a beautiful cruise ship.

The meals were expertly prepared from morning until night. The quality of everything was unsurpassed. Even though the menu was repeated during the second week of our cruise there was enough variety that no one had to enjoy the same meal twice if they did not wish to do so. Fruits and vegetables were expertly prepared and the pastries would rival any French bakery.

Meats and fish were tender and fresh. Every dish was beautifully presented whether it be the appetizer, soup, or main course. Desserts were creations to be admired for several minutes before devouring them.

It would be difficult to improve upon what we all felt was perfection to begin with from our first meal to our last
