Because we wanted to see the Canadian Rockies as well as inland Alaska, we booked this 20 Day cruise tour through Princess. We were fortunate to book in July through a "flash sale" and received a super price. We arrived in ... Read more

I thoroughly enjoyed the Cruise itself. There was ample time available to do your own thing or complete a pre booked land tour in each of the 3 towns visited. Ketchikan (my personal favourite) is a 1/2 day visit. Juneau is a full day and ... Read more

We were pleased with the embarkation for Princess. That went very smoothly, and we were very pleased with our itinerary and excursions. We also felt that there was adequate storage in the cabin to put all of our belongings away. We ... Read more

This was our seventh Alaska cruise, sixth on Princess and fifth cruisetour. Needless to say we love Alaska, which is why we keep coming back. This time we chose to repeat our 2012 cruisetour that took us to Kenai, so that our friends could ... Read more

Disclaimer up front - this was not just a cruise but a cruisetour. We had 12 days (5 land, 7 sea) with Princess, with the land portion first. We chose to sail with Princess solely because they had such an extensive network of land lodges, ... Read more

This was our third cruise with Princess and first to Alaska. Neither disappointed. The Star is similar in size and layout to many of the other Princess ships. It is by no means a luxury ship, but the ship is not the star here. This ... Read more

We did our land tour FIRST and then trained from Denali to Whittier for the inside passage cruise. I recommend doing it this way; after the land tour we needed some time to relax, and the first couple days at sea provided that. As to the ... Read more

Do NOT take a cruise that ends in Vancouver, BC. DO NOT!, The airport is a virtual cattle call. We stood in 6 lines to check in, check package, go through security AND through US customs. The security folks took apart my backpack ... Read more
