I chose this cruise to explore Alaska. The ship itself was great but the embarkation was absolutely terrible. Huge lines in customs and even that we had booked a penthouse suite, we were all in a very long line. The Cabin was very ... Read more

I was on the Star Princess's last Alaska Cruise in September with my children and son-in-laws. I came down with the flu the first night out and was sick the entire cruise. Saw nothing to speak of and stayed in my interior cabin. ... Read more

This was our first cruise with Princess, and our first to Alaska. We did a four day land tour before the cruise, all with Princess. We were a group of 12, some family, some friends. We were not very impressed with the land portion. ... Read more

The cruise to Alaska was outstanding....College Fiord was simply breathtaking. We were fortunate to have sunshine and warmer temperatures (50-65 degrees F for the most part). The ship itself was fine. The cruise was sold out but it did ... Read more

This is a review of a combined cruise and land tour of Alaska. Overall, the cruise was very nice. We chose a suite level accommodation and would recommend it highly. The suite was beautiful, large deck, nice beds, spotlessly clean, ... Read more

I wanted a quick getaway from SoCal to the Northwest, and this was perfect. The ship is in great condition, the food was very good and the stateroom (veranda on Lido deck 14) was fine. Seas were smooth and weather was good. Too cold and ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary. We wanted to transit the Panama Canal. The canal experience was wonderful and very worthwhile. The ship itself is dated and needs some work. The port of Aruba was a very short visit, ... Read more

The Panama Canal cruise had been on my husband's bucket list for years and we finally got the chance to do it. The transit started on the Pacific side and enabled us to see the approach to the new, not yet opened, canal. It was a lovely ... Read more
