I really enjoyed cruising with Princess. The Island Princess was beautiful and sooo clean ( they even let us tour the galley, and it was spotless!!). The Food was excellent with so much variety that I am sure any preference could be satisfied. The staff/crew were always helpful and considerate! The only thing that held me back from giving a five star rating was the entertainment; I thought there would be more "shows". Additionally, the "destination lectures", although informative, felt more like sales pitches for the excursions. I often felt like the whole cruise was targeted to selling something or the other; jewelry, art, excursions, future cruises....instead of focusing on providing an unforgettable experience on the current cruise! That being said, I will definitely cruise with Princess again!

You will probably need a map to get around your first couple of days; all the elevators don't go to all the floors, and it takes a while to learn "fore" and "aft" !
