Island Princess is our very favorite ship! As another poster mentioned, there are decks at the stern that have wonderful views along with the "normal" places.
The Island Princess is the perfect size for us. Not too small, but also not too large to get around. The ship doesn't have all the "bells and whistles", but we love her !
We're booked next year on another Island Princess Alaska cruise .
