Fabulous trip!

Sail Date: April 01, 2012

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

The ship was beautiful; lots of area to spread out; great crew.

Pros: In addition to the ports of call, we loved Tom Franek in the Crooner's Bar and the servers there.

Cons: The long wait on the bus doing the Panama Canal transit excursion.

Recommends Island Princess? Yes!

Food and Dining
A lot of items in the buffet had multiple ingredients where I would have liked just plain food. We always found something good to eat, but skipped over a lot because of the unknown ingredients. The fresh pineapple was excellent!
Cabin / Stateroom
The stateroom was small and even though we opted for a room with an obstructed view, I thought we would be able to see something out the window. As it turned out, we could see nothing.
Service and Staff
The staff in the Crooner's Bar was the best, and they made our time there very special.
We were disappointed in the amount of stores for shopping; there really was only one affordable one.
