Old & Worn-out

|

We truly enjoyed our cruise. That being said, Island Princess is OLD and tired. We do enjoy the smaller ships, but in the future because how Princess manages these smaller ships and offers lesser quality food, ...

This ship needs attention

The cleanliness and quality of furnishings needs serious help. I have cruised with Princess 6 previous times and have never had a ship or staff like this. It was as if no one cared from the company to the staff. I ...

The Island Princess has eliminated public areas and added more cabins!

We choose this ship because we love it’s sister ship, the Coral. This is NOT the same ship as the Coral. The huge two story Universal Lounge was removed, lots of cabins were added instead. The fitness room was ...

Guess I'm the only one, but it was below par

We picked this cruise as we had done one like it on the Coral Princess. This was really disappointing. The food in the Horizon was barely palatable and almost the same every day. The food in the dinning room was ...

Shoulda been better!

We love to cruise – and have always had a great time, but circumstances and events conspired against us on this one. In my mind, Princess really fell down on the job this time around – but it might just be this ...

THERE OUGHT TO BE A LAW

Let's start with the good points: Our cabin steward, our table waiters, the help at the 14th floor buffet, the presentations in the Princess Theater, embarking and disembarking. These things were good. Now let's ...

Not Up to Expectations

Selected the Island Princess because it had recently been in dry dock. They forgot to remove rust and clean up the ship. The dining room staff, Jeffrey and Maria Carmen provided excellent and attentive service and ...

Nice food and service, terrible ship after the renovation. Overcrowded

It was the only Princess ship that spent 2 days in Panama (one day in Fuerte Amador so we could get on land and one day through the Canal). So I booked this ship. The canal experience was great, but I would never ...

Don't Cruise on Island Princess

It sounded like a good cruise but it was not. The ship is tired, front desk is terrible and seemed like half the ship and crew got sick including us. We have taken other Princess Cruises as well as Norwegian ...

Island Princess poor choice for Panama Canal scenic cruising

We have traveled through the Panama Canal three previous times and enjoyed it, but not this time. As a non-balcony passenger and photographer it is important to get unobstructed views from throughout the ship. NOT ...

Poor in Most Areas

Our first time on Princess and our last. Compared to other cruise lines this was a dirty ship. The deck areas were never cleaned until the night. A murky pool and filth in the shower cubicles on deck. We ...

Not so 'Beautiful' Island Princess!

Stay Away

After cruising with Princess for the past many years, 12 cruises in all, this was by far our worst experience. The ship is badly in need of repairs. Toilets kept plugging up, strong sewer odor by the ...

Island Princess - Hawaii

No Hawaiian music aboard the Island Princess, no decor indicating she was called the Island Princess and no Hawaiian food. That should have been our first clue that this was going to be on ordinary cruise. We had ...
