Island Princess Cruise Review to Alaska - Gulf of Alaska
Review summaryIf the food in the dining room had been better, this would have been a much better trip. The burgers and dogs at the grill topside, were better than the food in the dining room and that shouldn't be the case! Was really looking forward to fresh local seafood (salmon, crab legs, prawns, scallops, hallibut etc.) but was disappointed. My suggestion would be, if you can't provide fresh, well prepared, local seafood, don't put it on the menu. I would expect the quality of seafood we were served in the midwest, but not aboard a ship. Also, dishes that are supposed to be spicy, should be. i.e. jambalya Another thing that bothered us was that there were no food options available after 10PM or in the bars....with dinner being over at 6:30ish and folks drinking for a few hours listening to music, dancing, etc., a snack would have been nice....something more than a few peanuts. Suggestions: chips and salsa or queso, popcorn, assorted cheeses and crackers, soft pretzels, desserts, etc. doesn't have to be fancy, just needs to be available.
Food and Dining
great music from the 30's to the 60's, comfortable seating, swing dancing, salsa dancing, tango, and jitterbug.
Really good coffee drinks (lattes). Service staff was nice.,
Loud and busy. good dance music.
Crooners Martini Bar
Service here was awesome and entertaining. The entertainment was top notch and not so loud that you couldn't carry on a conversation. The seating is comfy. Perfect place to relax and catch up.
nice selection of slots even though it's a small casino...it is about average size for a cruise ship tho. little hard to get used to not getting a 'cash out' ticket, but rather any winnings are loaded to your "account"..
Had a wonderful couples massage! Highly recommend.
