Transatlantic Island Princess Transatlantic Cruise Reviews

At the end of one of our production shows. These are some talented people and the shows were very well orchestrated. Always got standing ovations.
On the first night, I dined solo in the Bordeaux Dining room. Very classy service, terrific food, and a varied menu.
Using both chairs, I was able to lounge quite comfortably on the patio.
Another look inside the thermal spa.

Ship ok, itinerary fantastic!
"Near mid ship on the port side of my deck on Caribe was a strong mold smell.Despite these issues the ship is one of my favorites because if it’s size and that it has a promenade deck I can walk on unlike the newer, bigger ships that no longer have a promenade deck to walk on and enjoy...."Read More

Ok ship, lots of Covid. Cheap food, mediocre service.

We chose this cruise to get from Florida to Europe. We knew the weather would be lousy and it lived up to expectations. What we didn’t expect was so much Covid on board that the masking rules were reimposed after our second port. As a result we avoided public areas and dining rooms thereafter. The food in the main dining room was ok. The food in the cafeteria was made of extremely cheap ...

Total chaos in dining room every nite. Reservation app didn’t work- reservations changed on us with no notice- total mess! Food mediocre at best. Room service hit & miss on whether you would actually get orders. No safe in room for valuables, broken down bed had to be replaced. New carpet shedded horribly all over clothes ea day. No vacuuming allowed to keep it under control due to hundreds ...

I had never done a transatlantic cruise before. Thought I would love the sea days. Plus side the food was at the usual high standard of Princess. I make it a practice to avoid buffet, too hard to manage my own portion control and good place to get sick. So I mostly ate in dining rooms, for was good. But the timing was. Always off. Using tne medallion to make a reservation was useless. I was. ...

Everything was cut back & the food turned the cruise into a flop

Someone in corporate decided to cut back on the food quality & menu options. The Dining Room menu was changed and striped of the better options, i.e., steak, sea bass., etc., and replaced with pasta & salmon. Dining Room was poor, and we could not hack it even three times, of our 33 days on the ship - all were flops and had to be sent back or a changed order. BOTH specially dinning, steak & ...

Wanted to do another Transatlantic with two couples that have not been. Overall enjoyed the cruise but the experience with COVID onboard with 300-400 coming down with it put a damper on some activities and put the deflector shields up. Embarkation - What a breeze with the medallion in Fort Lauderdale, stayed at next door at the Marina Hilton arriving two days early. Took all of 10 ...

I spent a total of 34 days on this ship. 18 transatlantic to Canada, 3 stops in Iceland, Scotland, and England, then 16 days in Norway. I am an Elite Captain’s Circle Member on Princess with 27 cruises and over 250 days cruising with them. I have sailed on the Island Princess on 3 other occasions. It is old and many decks had mold or sewage smells. I was in a port side extended balcony on ...

Iceland was on my bucket list. I also liked the Ireland (Cork) and Scottish (Shetland) ports as well. We had a rough start with a scorching hot state room ... that would not could down.. I had to be very insistent to finally get someone down to determine that the room was not getting adequate air flow. Our first port was Hallifax, which was nice. A few days at sea... then 3 Icelandic ...

We thought Iceland would be impressive. It was. I wanted to see Cork. It was canceled. Ship was old, service was haphazard, crew didn’t understand or ignored requests. Club Class dining was worth it, but didn’t like condescending attitude of wait staff, their inability to pronounce names, their insincere fawning. I am not “Lady” anyone; don’t call me that. Pepper routine ridiculous, should ...

After spending a few pre-cruise days in Venice, we boarded the Island Princess, our first time with them so we were naturally wondering what we would find! The boarding was quite good, everything ran smoothly; the cabin was ready and our luggage was placed inside shortly after. Cabin E710 is located at the back of the ship so it was quiet as there were not many passengers moving around ...

It was a shame what the corporate office did when they decided to add 200 more rooms on the ship. Apparently they didn't account for the 400 more passengers to eat in the main dining room. We had my time dining and most nights were given beepers to wait for an available table. Never had that happen before. Thought I was waiting at Rec Lobster! On formal night they ran out of beepers and we were ...
