August 2015 - 12 Night Grand Mediterranean (Venice To Barcelona) Cruise on Island Princess
The itinerary ruled on this trip. The ports were great. Almost all the excursions were wonderful with good guides. The food on Princess in the dining rooms was excellent. Anytime diners need to know that after 8 pm you will likely have to wait to be seated (up to 45 minutes) Go earlier if you want to avoid. Balcony room on deck 11 was good. Not so good was the entertainment and the food in the Horizon court buffet, but breakfast was the best. There were signs of plumbing issues (sewer smells at some spots, floods over carpets, etc.) Deck lounge chairs were lacking--they need to get more. Overall, I think the Island Princess is due for a refurbishment next year. I believe this is one of their older ships.
