Recommends Island Princess? Yes!

Cruise Ships Past and Present lecture was terrific. Productions were very good. Some variety in addition to guest singers would be good. Ships band\, orchestra and Rhapsody Trio were superb. Galley tour was much appreciated. Would have liked to have a port visit in Panama in addition to the other visits.
Service and Staff
Great crew. All the waiting staff was exceptional. Embarkation and disembarkation processes were the best we have experienced in many cruises.
Cabin / Stateroom
Was exactly as expected.
Food and Dining
Loved the anytime dining\, grill\, ice cream and pizza stations and movie pop corn. Appreciated availability of two person tables.
Ship Quality
Would like to see upper deck observation windows washed before the cruise. Understand they get salt splattered but they were salty from the start. Layout was a little more choppy than on other ships but did not distract from our experience. Love the purell stations -- could use more of them.
