Good, but Improvement Needed

|

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 ...

Would have been a 5 star cruise if we could have slept in our beautiful suite

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 ...

25th Anniversary Cruise

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 ...

Great Cruise from Barcelona to Venice

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, ...

Great way to travel

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 ...

Not the Best By a Long Way

Let me start with the good bits: Most of the waiting/serving staff were excellent, friendly and very efficient. The general layout of the ship and choice of bars and restaurants was also very good. Transfers to and ...

Can't wait to book another

This was our 1st cruise so did not really know what to expect. When we arrived in Barcelona we were met by our driver who drove us to the port. Embarking was well organised, staff friendly and helpful. Our cabin was ...

On our 3rd cruise with Princess (and first to the Mediterranean) we had a wonderful time that surpassed what we were expecting. From the start in Barcelona, we were blessed with excellent weather at every port but ...

Would Do It All Again

The service on there was really good nothing too much trouble but be careful with reception as some of them do not speak good English or understand. The best person to speak with is Bernard who comes from Canada. We ...

Don't panic; Island Princess is lovely.

I read the forum relating to what the Island Princess would be like after her re-fit with some amusement as everyone seemed to be worrying so much! Anyway, despite having not been on this ship before we have been ...
