Thought that the Princess Line was suppose to be the upper crust of most other ship companies - wrong! I will definitely be going back to Celebrity or Royal for what they had to offer. I can at least say we tried it.

Pros: The people on the ship (the other passengers).

Cons: Lack of entertainment, lack of pool side activities on sea days, some of the directors unorganized. Lack of amenities on the ship. No midnight buffets of any kind. Several of the ports were in very poor locations whereas you had to travel by bus 2 hours to get to a tourist area.

Recommends Island Princess? No.
