We have booked to go on the Island Princess to Hawaii in November. We have cruised many times before but not with Princess. My only worry is the cabin we have booked! It's our silver wedding anniversary this year so we wanted it to be a little bit special. Coming from the UK and as mentioned before, not sailed with Princess before, we don't know what exactly to expect with regards the cabins. We have booked Cabin C639 on Caribe Deck. We were offered several choices of cabins on lower decks but not knowing this ship at all we eventually chose C639 as we were told it was slightly larger than the lower decks. Does anyone have any info they can give me on this type of cabin and have we chosen the right position.......just to put our minds at rest & any info would be much appreciated.
Location: Wisconsin....about 100 miles south of the Frozen Tundra and 70 miles east of Camp Randall
Re: Island Princess Cabins???
Check out this link.....deck plan for Caribe deck on the Island Princess. your cabin is right next to the suites on the second "bump out" on the ship - very close to the stairs and elevators. You are between two passenger decks. I think you have a cabin in a great location!
We have cruised twice on the Island Princess and love the ship. We were on your floor both times and very happy with our cabins. We did Alaska last summer and just returned from the Panama Canal cruise. I hope to do your cruise next.
Hi there, we just got off the Island Princess. You look to be in a good location... so I don't think you've got an issue there, but check the prices. The Caribe Deck is expensive and if I were going to spend some extra money, I'd go for a Mini Suite. Hawaii is a long cruise. We had Mini Suite D331 on the Dolphin Deck and loved it. The balcony isn't that much smaller than the Caribe Deck... still quite large in my opinion, but you get all the extra living space in the cabin. The Mini Suites have a large couch, a tub in the bathroom... it made all the difference in our cruise. Check the price difference, and if it's not much, go for the Mini Suite !
Good Afternoon Pringle----we are booked on the November 5th sailing out of LA-----we have sailed on the Coral which is the sister ship to the Island-----we loved the ship!!! I think you have a great location---we are booked in the same cat. but just one deck above and forward on the ship----according to the brochure I think you have a larger balcony than our cabin------happy sailing and maybe see you on board!!!!!!
We are in acc. cabin C633 on the Island, and it is right next to C637. Does the balcony on C637 go "around the corner" and look down into 633? Is there a wide wall there, going into the bump?
Thanks for any information on this. Wondering if we should change to C631 instead..............does anyone know? TIA
