One evening, I was having dinner at one of her restaurants, The Bourdeaux. I finished my dinner and I liked it so much that I hinted to our waiter that I would like "seconds". It was the fastest and convincing "Yes sir" I have ever had the pleasure to receive. A short time later, my second dinner was served.
Her swimming pools and spas were kept in top shape 24/7. The entertaiment shows exceeded my expectaions. I was so pleasantly surprised.
The Island Princess had three dining options; the buffet, assigned seating (traditional cruise dining) and Personnal Choice dining. Everyone was happy with their individual choice.
Our disembarkation was smooth. The crew picked up our luggage the night before and then had it transported to the airport the next day. We retrieved our luggage at the airport with no difficulty.
We have already made our mind up to plan for another cruise with Princess; specifically, Island Princess.
We will STRONGLY recommend Princess Cruises and hope everyone experiences the same good times we had..
Pros: The ship's crew and staff; in my vacation experience (44 y.o.), no one has ever worked harder so that I could relax and have a good vacation.
Cons: Tendering; it cuts time off the port time. Then again, no cruise ship is exempt from having to tender.
