Beautiful ship, wonderful crew.

Pros: Wonderful personnel on the ship\, all of whom made us feel so special.

Cons: Beds. Beds were awful. We woke up every day with shoulder and back pain.

Recommends Island Princess? Yes!

Didn't find much of interest on this ship. Spent a lot of time napping\, reading and eating. Even the evening shows weren't of particular interest to us. Good selection of movies.
Service and Staff
Almost every crew member we encountered went out of their way to make us happy. There were a couple who looked like they wished they were somewhere else\, but they were the minority.
Cabin / Stateroom
We were on Aloha deck right under a pool area\, and the crew started throwing deck chairs out on deck about 6:30 in the morning. Very disturbing when trying to sleep in. Otherwise room was very comfortable.
Food and Dining
Food was generally good\, but I wouldn't call it great. Best we had was in the Bayou Cafe. Afternoon tea was disappointing. Only one kind of tea\, and the food was too big and hearty. Should be small and delicate so more variety can be had (just my personal opinion!)
