"At the end of the day, a cruise ship is but a hotel (with poor Wi-Fi and so-so food) that takes you to your destinations and not much more.The Golden Circle tour in Reykjavik was the worse one we've ever had due to poor bus condition (air conditioning didn't work causing a near revolt by the passengers) and a very inattentive tour guide who usually dumped us off the bus with no excursion talks at all...."Read More

Missed two ports due to wind, but cruise was delightful

Review for Island Princess to Arctic

Two of the ports (Haugesund and Lerwick) were missed due to high winds. But our purpose for the cruise was to visit Iceland, and those ports were great! Food was average and service was great. Arriving without luggage from flight was annoying but the ship tried hard to accommodate our situation. The transition from COVID-intensive to normal cruising is happening slowly and still impacts ...

Chose this cruise due to the itinerary and previous experiences sailing on Princess. Unfortunately, this experience was not like the pre-COVID cruises. Pre-cruise, EZ Air was horrible. Although the airlines were having their own issues, flights were cancelled, neither my travel agent nor I could not speak to an agent. After trying to explain that both carrier’s reservation system only had ...

Financial fraud, limited food supply and terrible tours

While the destinations on this cruise were good, this was overall the worst cruise I have ever been on. It got to a point where at times it was uncomfortable and stressful. This continues to weeks after disembarking as they are still currently holding my money hostage. I spent around 250 USD on my stateroom account, which they have charged from my bank. On top of the money they have charged, they ...

Been a Princess Cruise customer for decades but this was the first cruise since Covid. We had lowered our expectations accordingly but apparently not low enough. Our biggest gripes were food and Internet. Princess food was never spectacular but it's downright mediocre now. Heard lots of other people complaining too echoing sentiments to never sail Princess again. At best banquet-quality and ...

We had a wonderful time going to Norway. In the beginning we were a bit disappointed because Spitzbergen had been cancelled - this was a bucket list item for a lot of people on this cruise. The scenery and the two added ports made up for some of it. Would recommend going to Norway to anyone that asks, it's a beautiful place. The ship itself was a little odd - we sailed on her before she was ...

Choose cruise for itinerary. Met expectations. Iceland worth the trip. Baltic was interesting to us. Enjoyed area. Would have liked to have seen more Norwegian fjords . Ship stopped in port every day. Without missing port due to weather we would not have cruised any fjords. Ship did not meet expectations. Far behind on maintenance- automatic doors not working through entire cruise around the ...

This was my sixth cruise on Princess, and my 12th cruise over all. I chose this cruise because of the itinerary, never having been to Norway plus it was very Port intensive which I like. Having done my homework, I knew that island princess had been carved up into a Frankenstein ship to expand passenger capacity, adding 250 extra state rooms (she was the sister ship the coral ...

Review for Island Princess to Transatlantic

Wanted to do another Transatlantic with two couples that have not been. Overall enjoyed the cruise but the experience with COVID onboard with 300-400 coming down with it put a damper on some activities and put the deflector shields up. Embarkation - What a breeze with the medallion in Fort Lauderdale, stayed at next door at the Marina Hilton arriving two days early. Took all of 10 ...
