Sail Date: Jan 2020
Cabin: Interior

We chose this cruise since it was 58 days and included sailing around South America. We had previously been to South America but never to all the places were we went to on this cruise. Some of the highlights for me was visiting Easter Island, Falkland Islands and Rio De Janeiro. Embarkation went smoothly, however disembarkation was delayed over one hour for our group versus the published schedule. Island Princess is a smaller ship that needs refurbishing. Dining was good but there was a bit of repetition for the menu. Excursion prices from the ship were high. The staff performed extremely well and always had a smile and positive attitude. I believe that senior management and middle management needs to be looked at by Princess on this ship. They have not been training/supervising their staff. They will not meet with guests when their are problems that need to be addressed. Too many times I heard that, "we do not do it that way on this ship." I would go again on this cruise and hope management will be improved.

Cabin Review

Interior

Cabin was excellent. It is an interior cabin. It was clean and met our needs.

Port Reviews

Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)

Embarkation went well.

Easter Island

Outstanding port! We enjoyed walking around the island and seeing the statutes.

Stanley

We walked around the island and saw the sights. Nice port.

Rio de Janeiro

We walked throughout the city seeing the sights. It was during Carnivale and it was great to see the people who were celebrating!
