We booked this cruise tour in June 2016 because the promotions , i.e. free gratuities, $150/person on board credit and $50/person specialty dining, was very attractive. Furthermore, my travel agency gives free travel insurance. What ... Read more

The Star Princess seems to be geared to shorter cruises - around 7 days. We were upgraded from deck 5 to deck 11, which was a lovely surprise. The Horizon Buffet section is very limited compared to the Dawn Princess which we did a 26 ... Read more

Not only did the 7 nights on this ship which were fantastic, but did the 5 day land tour from Anchorage to Denali and returned to the ship in Whittier by train. Everything was perfectly organized, and Princess took care of our every ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the dates/location. We had a group of 18 and a great time was had by all. It had the friendliest captain I've ever seen! The staff was also just as friendly! It made for a great trip. Also, we have been ... Read more

My husband and I chose the Star Princess for our cruise to Alaska. After reviewing other lines we decided that the itinerary was the best on Princess. We have sailed Princess before and had a very positive experience. While the Star ... Read more

We chose to take this cruise because we were going to Fairbanks, AK to visit our nephew. It was a pleasant, relaxing way to travel. The food was good, as usual and we found a waiter, Robert, from Romania, who made our mealtimes enjoyable. ... Read more

1.We enjoyed our meals in the Horizon Grill (buffet). Service was good and the view out of the large floor to ceiling windows was fantastic. Salad and fruits were very fresh – impressive considering that we were on the Alaska cruise. ... Read more

Here's a review for people who don't consider themselves "cruise people." We are quite well-traveled, never on organized tours, but thought this was the best way to see Alaska without having to kill myself planning. Did a RC ... Read more

First time on Princess. Went because they can go in Glacier Bay National Park. Overall the cruise portion was very nice. The food in the buffet was horrible and we avoided it. The food in the main dining room was better but it was the ... Read more

Star Princess was a worthy ship. Basically when choosing between the different itineraries, I was looking for Anchorage to Vancouver. I was very happy with the itinerary, stopping at Hubbard Glacier, Glacier Bay, Skagway, Juneau and ... Read more

Alaska is a beautiful, must see destination. Seeing it from a cruise ship is not the most ideal, but it is convenient and fun. The first day and a half is spent at sea with nothing to really see. Ketchikan is not the best port and we ... Read more

Princess cruises has the worst customer service of any business I have experienced in the travel industry. We had a group of 20 including 10 kids and they were awful at managing the group at the kids. Once they have your money with the ... Read more

We have always wanted to a Denali Cruisetour so we decided to do Alaska again. Love the convenience of getting on board so close to home and only having to fly back one way. The cruise itself was uneventful, the weather wasn't the ... Read more
