Older ship, newer ships much nicer!

Sail Date: September 19, 2012

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Balcony

The ship's overall size was big enough with the amount of passengers to staff.

Pros: Our room stewart was very nice. Didn't have to wait at anytime dining.

Cons: Poor food selection\, many of staff not very friendly\, didn't handle noro- virus outbreak fast enough.

Recommends Island Princess? No.

Ship Quality
The ship's size was fine and it was kept clean to the eye.
Food and Dining
Did not find enough food selection choices\, many repeats.
Cabin / Stateroom
We had a balcony room which was nice but the bathroom was very small compared to the newer ships and the shower was toooo small.
Service and Staff
Some of the staff was nice and friendly mostly the room staff. The food staff was not very friendly and the last night in the dining room it took us 2 1/2 hours to finish our meal and we missed both shows because of the staff being so slow.
Shows were good but nothing outstanding.
