Island Princess is 92,822 tons and 964 feet with a passenger capacity of 2,200, making it one of the smaller cruise ships in service. We found this ship ideal for an extended cruise, and the design and features had everything we wanted. We had a mini-suite cabin on deck 12 with extra living space, more storage, and a bathroom with a tub, much like a small apartment with a balcony. As expected on Princes, our dining experience was excellent. The Princess Theatre was grand, and all performances were well done and included various types of entertainment. There were a lot of bars and lounges to dance to good music. The casino was smaller but was never crowded and included professional and friendly staff. Probably best of all, it was easy to find quiet places to read, do laptop work, or relax during the sea days.
