As a very loyal X cruiser we chose this cruise as it was the only one where we did not have to disembark the day after our wedding anniversary and it allowed us to visit both Hubbard and Glacier Bay. X is not licensed to sail in GB. We ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it included Alaskan waterways and land cruise. Departure city of Vancouver was a plus, so we arrived a day early to tour and that was not enough. Disembarkation went fast and smooth because we chose a city tour ... Read more

I have always cruised on Celebrity or Royal Caribbean but on my trip to Alaska I thought Princess was the way to go. My review is on the ship only, not the itinerary portion (which was fabulous). Embarking and disembarking was ... Read more

This trip was on our bucket list. My husband had just finished treatment from prostate cancer and we were celebrating his cancer free status. The timing was right and we wanted to do the land portion before the cruise. We has a great time ... Read more

This cruise was very enjoyable because of its amazing service, beautiful sights, and wide selection of food! The staff was always very kind, saying good morning, and remembering our names. Our two favorite waiters were Arnel and Erickson ... Read more

What a great cruise. We did the land portion of the cruise/tour first and we are glad we did. Starting with 2 days in Fairbanks, followed by 2 days at the Denali Lodge and then on to the ship, was much better than doing it the other way. ... Read more

We have taken a number of cruises but never one to Alaska and had never been on Princess Cruise Lines. Did our research and booked it based on the ports and land excursions available and the reputation of Princess Cruises. There were highs ... Read more

We have always wanted to cruise through the Panama Canal. When the time and opportunity came up, we booked it. Going through the canal was spectacular...a once in a lifetime experience. To think that this was built over 100 years ago ... Read more

We had glorious weather on our Alaskan cruise with temps between 18 and 22 celsius (68 - 72 Fahrenheit). so that makes a big difference in how one enjoys any travel experience. Besides the effect of the weather, overall, our trip was ... Read more

This was our first cruise and we had looked on cruise critic to see what our experience might be like. This seems like the kind of thing that is on everyone's bucket list and talking with other passenger's confirmed this. Overall, we are ... Read more

Princess Cruise is rated the best for Alaska. We did a 7-day cruise with an 8-day land tour. The cruise was very good. The only negatives were that some of the wait staff at dinner weren't as well trained as they should be and one never ... Read more
