Our last Princess cruise

We chose the Panama Canal cruise because it was on our bucket list. The itinerary was great. We felt the cruise was overbooked, understaffed and over priced. Everything on board was pricey - excursions, drinks, ...

Disappointed with Princess

Disappointed to an extent

We were excited to take a 19 day cruise - it had a great itinerary! Unluckily for us - our first port was changed from Puerto Chiapas to Puerto Vallarta. The entrance to the harbor was too shallow due to the ...

First Look at the Butchered Island Princess

We have been on many cruises with 10 different lines, with about half on Princess (30+). I'll admit this review is biased. Having plenty of advance warning about the "wonderful" changes Princess had done to the ...

Disappointed in Princess

We live in Georgia. We booked this cruise for a halfway meeting point with friends from Hawaii who are also frequent cruisers, and to make a port call in Oregon, a state we have never visited before. This is our ...

Nice enough, but we won't likely choose the Island Princess again...

We chose this cruise for having an overall length of one week, including travel to and from our city. This is our first trip on the Island Princess. Other factors were being on a Princess ship and being reasonably ...

Disappointing Island Princess cruise.

The ports were fine. Our room was a joke. Way too small. Had to move both table and chair to get to the balcony. Balcony was fine and used a lot, except, of course, when we went through the Panama Canal. ...

Too many lines

Having been on other bigger Princess boats, this one was too small and not laid out as well. Scheduling for dinner and theater shows was conflicting and problematic. People had to wait in long lines for the 5:15 ...

Great itinerary, mediocre ship

This was our first time on the Island Princess and I think it can best be described as "cozy". While there were many things that I liked about this smaller Princess ship, its lack of space also presented some ...

Great service but overall disappointing

This was a Panama Canal cruise. Early on, their website touted tours of Panama. On board, their Touring channel showed th many splendors of Panama. Yet, once on board, no tours were offered and we wet not allowed ...

Not as good as expected.

I took this cruise as it begins and ends in LA (hence no flights, unlimited luggage). Stops in several countries I've never to before. The description of the excursions is completely bogus. We went on five of ...

Only 2nd cruise and I learned a few things.

I need to start by saying that my husband was sick a majority of this cruise, so my opinion will be a little tainted. We got flu shots prior to trip, but he still got Type A Flu. After he got "well" he must have ...
