Please see the comments below. We had a mixed experience with Princess. This was our first Princess experience, and will probably be our last. The outstanding feature on the Island Princess was the Sanctuary, which we used quite a bit.
Food and Dining
The Spa seemed to be intent on selling products. Aggressively so. Even the acupuncturist - supposedly a medical professional - charged a 15% tip. Unbelievably unprofessional.
After winning a $50 credit at the Spa, I got several different answers from different attendants regarding the use of the credit. I finally realized that my winnings only applied to the most expensive treatments - and only on port days. I never used the credit. Princess Cruises are too hungry for my taste.
Service and Staff
Cabin / Stateroom
The ship was freezing. We were unprepared for "cold weather", with little or no protection. Consequently we stayed in our stateroom more than we have on other cruises. This was our first Princess cruise. It may be the last.
