Great cruise - they booked us an unbelievable cabin - location wise.  All arrangements were handled very professionally.  Island Princess was a good ship - very clean, good food and a lot of opportunities to make new friends.  Couldn't ask for a better experience.  We took advantage of the shore excursion

Not enough time and not very interesting

Just relax and enjoy yourself. We chose the anytime dining which I would recommend. It gives you a chance to enjoy the early shows and eat later. Also enjoyed first run movies with the "movies under the stars" program - usually started at 7 and were over by 9 so you could dine later.
