The Island Princess

This was our third time cruising. Each one has been a different line. As always I research the heck out of it before going.

The island is a smaller ship (small is all relative). It only can have about 1,900 passengers. Mega ships nowadays can have up to 4,000. It was easy to navigate. We had a balcony room in the aft (back) of the ship starboard (right) side. It was a really nice location.

There are two pools. One indoors and one outside. We didn't use either but with the sunny weather the outside one did get some use.

The demographics of this cruise were very different from our past ones. Not a lot of children and definitely skewed to the retired crowd. We felt really young. One benefit of this was it didn't seem like there were all the waiters walking around trying to sell you drinks. We walked the stairs almost exclusively which was probably good given all the food they have on the ship.

They have an ice carver and several vegetable carvers. Look ehat they can do.

Yes that's all edible.

They also make incredible looking desserts.

So that's a small tour of the ship.


  1. Looks like a great vacation. That food is amazing.

  2. Wow!!!!! The food alone made me want to go! :)

  3. The desserts look too good to eat!
