Island Princess Cruise Review by Profbugs

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: May 2019
  • Destination: Alaska
  • Cabin Type: Balcony

Cabin steward and service throughout ship was good. Cabin well above 70 degrees throughout even though thermostat set on cold. Glad balcony had a door which opened. Food was disappointing- buffet breakfast was a zoo fighting aggressive people for a table. Lunch and dinner selections big on sushi, Indian....stuff I don't eat.

Main dining room more civilized. Food selections inconsistent -ribs tough, muffaletta little meat on a bun. Mixed grill good. Scallops and shrimp 3 miniscule scallops with 3 very small shrimp and a dollop of mashed potatoes.

Outbreak of flu then upper respiratory illness. Theatre New Orleans themed show good. Other entertainment primarily trivia, bingo,karaoke, talent show, food demo, selling jewelry. National Park Service presentation good. Glacier Bay was highlight. Booked tour before cruise. Regimented and rushed. It was a way to cover much ground in little time. Logistics of luggage very smooth- was positively amazed. This was a once in a lifetime bucket list trip. It was a father&son adventure. However, convinced me to not take a prepackaged tour or cruise again. At premium prices. Value for price poor.
