Island Princess Cruise Review by Csyfert

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

Wanted to cruise Glacier Bay so I chose this ship because it is one of the smaller ships. Having cruised numerous times with other vendors this was my first cruise with the Princess line. The quality of the food was sub-par in all the food venues. The best food was the pizza and it was nothing to rave about. Service was good except for the room stewards who were not the friendliest and seemed to disappear when you needed them. The laundromat token machine never worked the entire 7 days after numerous complaints it was obvious that was not a priority. Go to guest services and get your tokens ahead of time. One traveler had to have her room steward banned from her room because he would repeatly put wet towels on top of her clothes and then deny it. The entertainment was also sub-par compared to my previous cruise experiences. I hope my experience was just tied to this ship and not the entire Princess Line of ships. It appears Princess has the market on the Alaska scene since most hotels, gift shops, resorts plus Holland, Carnival are all owned by Princess now
