Cabin:

As a solo traveler, I got a really good deal, which is rare obviously. I just wanted to get away and try and build up my next tier for cruising on Princess. Additionally, I wanted to check out the ship and try and relax and have a good time, which I did. As a previous passenger on the Pacific Princess last month, I really enjoyed the Island Princess even more. It was bigger in scale scale, the service was slightly better, the crowd was a little bit younger, the food was better and the entertainment was absolutely outstanding.

The cabins are laid out much differently than the Pacific. They are smaller in square footage but I like the layout better. For example, there is ample closet space and a bathroom, which is more private and secluded then on the Pacific Princess since you have the closet as a divider! Additionally, the balconies have a glass transparent structure that allow you to look at the ocean with little to no obstruction.

One thing I do not like about most Princess ships is they have balconies that protrude under other balconies. On this particular ship, the forward section of balconies are at level from top to bottom decks on the ship. This means you're not looking down on someone or turning your head and looking up at a sea of balconies looking at you. For the most part, their larger ships really missed the mark on "private balconies" in my opinion! If you want more private on this type of ship, select one in the forward section.

Cabin Review

Calvin was a standard oceanview balcony. I prefer the forward section of this particular ship as the other midships section & F §have balconies that protrude above or below you. The forward section is the only section that has cabins that are exactly at level. Also the balconies are glass so they provide optimal viewing of the ocean imports.
