Beautiful ship, wonderful crew.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
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!)


3 out of 5
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

5 out of 5
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.

Ship Quality

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
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.

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!
