Island Princess Overview

Island Princess was built to Panamax size - this means she can offer you the exclusive experience of sailing through the Panama Canal! A high percentage of balcony staterooms give passengers the chance to view this feat of engineering up-close, or take in stunning views of spectacular glaciers during cruises to Alaska. Featured on just one other Princess ship, the Bayou Cafe and Steakhouse is a unique dining venue onboard in which to enjoy authentic New Orleans cuisine accompanied by live jazz.

Worst cruise ever taken by UnhappyTravler

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We took this cruise on January 29.2019. Our room (E315) grunted loudly when the boat was in motion. We couldn't sleep. When I told the girl at the service desk she said nothing could be done and there weren't any other rooms available. I had to call every morning at 8 to get dinner reservations. I have severe acid reflux and cannot eat after 7 PM. Every day at 8 AM the girl told me there were no reservations available until 7:30 and I would have to stand in the line. When we stood in the line and waited for a table there were many empty tables in the room, so the girl lied to me. We were told by a waiter that princess added 250 passenger capacity to the boat and the restaurant couldn't handle it. That also explains why we had to get to the theater 45 minutes before the show to get a seat. If we arrived 10-15 minutes before the show it was standing room only. We booked three tours through Princess. The tour of Cartagena was fabulous. The tour of the new Panama Canal locks and Fort San Lorenzo was horrible, dangerous, and should be discontinued. Princess gave us a 40% refund on that tour. They should have refunded the cruise. We were exposed to fighting by locals around our bus, racing the wrong way into traffic by our driver, and an hours-long delay waiting to get back across the canal on a ferry boat. The boat & train ecotour in Costa Rica was safe but bad. We saw no wildlife on the train spent more time going through an industrial area than it spent in the jungle. Except for one sloth, the wildlife we saw on the boat was the same I have in my backyard in Florida.

Great Panama Cruise! by PapaGG

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group

We loved having extra days at sea on this cruise. We relaxed, watched movies, played cards with friends and explored the ship.

If you want to see the shows in Princess Theater, opt for the 1st seating for dinner.

Oct 27, 2014

If you have a chance to meet the guys at the egg station... they will make you a great breakfast.

Feb 18, 2015

Choose the early dinner seating and ask to share table with at least 4 other guests. You will make new friends and spend the dining time sharing experiences. Take a shawl (or dress warmer) when dining. Don't miss any of the shows and get your seat 30 minutes early to be able to get a seat.
