Voyage of the Glaciers (North Bound)
Sail Date: August 31, 2016
Ship: Island Princess
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Cabin Number: F720
Traveled As: Large Group
Reviewed: 1 year ago

We booked an OV (obstructed view) room and got upgraded to a regular full ocean view room! I visited my friend's balcony cabin and our bathroom is larger than theirs! Our room is at the tail end of the ship so I think it's a remodeled room.

Pros: Close to fitness room and Explorer bar and far from the restaurants (which helps with exercises after voracious eating).

Cons: Since we are at the aft of the ship, engine and anchor noises are more noticeable. At night is no problem since we're usually dead tired. But if you want to have some quiet time during the day, you may not like the noises.

 

The restaurants are all excellent. We chose anytime eating since the excursion stops vary a lot. We travelled with a large group of 20 and sometimes they cannot accommodate us.

Ship Tip

If you choose to do a wine tasting, go only with other wine tasters. They told us I can bring a guest. But the guests are "quarantined" to another table. Very embarassing for all. We managed to convince the "captain" to sit us together.
