We sailed on the Pacific Princess immediately after coming out of dry dock. She looks wonderful. Love this small ship. A few things did not get done or delivered on time by embarkation but that did not take away from a wonderful ... Read more

I loved the cruise, only did the first half. the ship has some limitations such as lack of theater with good sight lines. It was a good ship for those with limited mobility, as not very far to walk to anything. I really prefer the ... Read more

Island Princess Ship Review A mixed review; our 15 Day Panama Canal cruise (with Panama overnight) cruise was great and we really enjoyed ourselves, except for the disaster of a cabin we had. More about the cabin later. The cruise is ... Read more

We enjoy a spring transatlantic and specifically the longer days at sea. Destination, price and timing made this cruise a good choice. However, the larger ship offers some very big negatives: size of the balconies--miniscule; no ... Read more

Long-time Princess cruisers, our first Transatlantic (five days after retiring!). Embarkation at Fort Lauderdale was consistent with other cruises from this, our home port - chaotic, but pretty fast. We settled in for a very relaxing ... Read more

This cruise ship was lacking in some exercise ability features like a steam room and sauna in the locker rooms next to the fitness center. Even though the princess website indicates that there is a steam shower in the locker room I saw an ... Read more

This was our fourth cruise overall and the second with Princess. The full Canal Transit was our main reason for going, which left few options in our choice of ship. Complaints have been made here about the Island Princess, but on the whole ... Read more

The worst food and service we have ever experienced in over 35+ cruises. Simple dinner in a non-crowded dining room took over 1 hour and 45 minutes! Customer service was not present, except possibly our room attendant. I can count on one ... Read more

The embarkation was simple and well done. We had an obstructed balcony but since it wasn't really hot we did not spend a lot of time on the balcony. We did sit out there in port. The obstruction was not horrible because the boat only ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary, in particular, the full transit of the Panama Canal, as well as the other stops. By far, the Panama Canal transit was the highlight of the trip. Make sure you get up real early and are in ... Read more

I loved the size of this ship. Yes, it's a little older, but the minor issues were not enough to make a difference. One of the issues was not with the ship, but with Princess. Anytime dining, is not really "anytime dining" ... Read more
