Island Princess

Island Princess was built to the maximum size that can sail through the Panama Canal - meaning she cruises through it in style. She can even get up close to glaciers on Alaskan cruises for some truly magnificent views. As one of only two ships in the Princess Cruises fleet which offers authentic New Orleans cuisine and live jazz, you're in for a real treat.

About Island Princess

Perfectly sized to take her guests on cruises such as Voyage of the Glaciers and through the Panama Canal – Island Princess promises the most spectacular scenery. Her onboard facilities and activities help to ensure her cruisers have a thoroughly comfortable and enjoyable sailing experience.

She offers cosy, well-appointed staterooms – a high percentage of which include a balcony where you can look out at leisure, take photos and videos, and relax in comfort. Get a close look at the engineering of the Panama Canal, or marvel at the natural giants of glaciers.

Onboard activities are plentiful to keep you entertained – try out the menus at the signature Bayou Cafe and the Steakhouse, which offers tasty authentic New Orleans cuisine. Then sit back, enjoy your meal and lose yourself in the complex, fascinating rhythms of some live jazz.

You’ll also find a wide selection of onboard facilities – including tennis, the Ocean View Gymnasium and the Princess Theatre, featuring a full schedule of live shows. There’s even an art gallery, numerous bars and a casino! For those who want to take to the water, there are several pools and spas to choose from, as well as hot tubs. And if you find that you’re in need of a snack in the small hours – then the 24-hour Buffet Bistro is the place to go.
