We have completed a Coastal California cruise previously and had such a nice time we wanted to take the cruise again. We loved the Island Princess. It is a smaller ship but great for those cruisers who like to meet people and enjoy a smaller ship experience. Lots of wood used which made it seem warm and inviting. Entertainment was really good with a standing ovation one night for one ...

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 moved from its larger upper deck view of the sea location to a smaller inside the ship lower down deck. It was a joke and people actually paid to use fitness studios in port to workout. The ...

We just got off the Island Princess sailing from Los Angeles to Vancouver. Service overall, with one exception (see below) was fabulous. We were on the Royal Princess in January and are booked for Australia in December with a Cruisetour. If we had not booked Australia prior to this cruise, we would have definitely considered another cruise line. The Royal was such a completely different ...

This was our first time taking a short cruise (4 days), to our surprise, it felt like a 2 week cruise. Perhaps the short time forces us to enjoy every minute of it, and we really did. The short cruise eliminated the formal nights which was great because it had meant less things to pack, less things to change, less time spent getting ready to eat. I've been to many cruises, but this was the ...

I am self employed and booked this trip a couple days before departure, treating it as a working vacation with a change of scenery. Traveling alone, I just wanted to eat, sleep, and work (mostly reading). By all accounts, it was a success. Shows/Events/Bars/Casino/Internet/Pools/Excursions: Didn’t do a single one, so can’t comment. Staff: There was definitely a language barrier for many of ...

Firstly, I agree with the many in they have ruined Island Princess with the recent updates. The additional cabins block off the Promenade deck, the additional plating on the rear makes it look almost ugly and the loss of Vista lounge is a big shame. That said the ship traveled smoothly and rode the waves very well. The crew were particularly good and well organised. Dining was first rate and the ...

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 Island Princess, I was predisposed not to like them. We had cruised several times before on both Island and Coral Princess (sister ship) and they were among our favorite ships. Coral ...

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 30th cruise overall, 25th on Princess. We were successful in our first goal, disappointed in the second. We booked our air travel through Princess EZ Air and flew without incident from ...

We had a wonderful time on the 6-day Pacific Wine Coastal on Island Princess, Los Angeles to Vancouver. I had read the posts on the refurb and it took a little bit to maneuver the ship but I never found it annoying. You just adjust. We did early traditional dining, which was at 5:15 p.m. (we signed up for 5:45 but it ended up being earlier). We normally don’t even get home from work until ...

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 priced. This was a week long getaway, not an annual family vacation. We booked our air travel with EZair, which also includes the transfers from airport to pier. All ticketing and ...
