Island Princess Cruise Review by Butchie B

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

We have been on about 15 cruises, last one 15 years ago. We have been all over the Caribbean, Mexican Rivera a number of times. Been through the Panama Canal, New Zealand and Australia. First cruise I have been on were I was charged for a soda. First cruise I have been on were they wanted to charge me $40 per person per day to look off the stern of the ship. Charged $29 per day service charge for my stateroom and 18% for every drink or soda I ordered. And that was after I paid $4,000 for the cruise. This will be the last Princess Cruise for me. The stateroom was nice, the service was great and the entertainment was good. That embarkation and debarkation was handled great. They did a great job handling luggage on and off the ship. Picked it up at the airport, next time we saw it was in our stateroom. Getting off, put our luggage outside our stateroom and didn’t see it again until we were at the airport. I have to give them a excellent grade on that.

Cabin Review

Cabin BA B730

The stateroom was probably the best one I have had. It was the first time I had a balcony room. When we were younger, the only time we were in the room was to shower, change or sleep. Now that we’re older, the balcony was nice.
