This is long, but I tried to subtitle each section to be helpful. This was our third Alaskan cruise in 5 years. We absolutely love the peacefulness and beauty of the mountains and forests that surround every passage of this cruise. We ... 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

We sailed on the Island Princess 6/22-29 out of Vancouver and we were very happy with our trip. I've read all of the reviews, and I was a little nervous, but some people complain about everything! First of all the staff is fabulous! ... Read more

This was our first cruise. We chose Princess cruise lines because they included Glacier Bay National Park on all their itineraries. We chose a 12 day Cruisetour which included 7 days northbound cruise followed by 5 day land tour with 1 ... 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

Picked this cruise for the destinations rather than the ship.. but... the ship was marvelous! The ports, Ketchikan, Juneau and Skagway are terrific. Cruising Glacier Bay National Park and College Fjords was majestic. Scenery was ... Read more

My wife and I are " Elite" Princess cruisers. We've been on many Princess ships and a couple of non-Princess ships. We have not cruised for about 4 years due to other trips/vacation destinations. We are just retired (65ish); this ... Read more

Greatly enjoyed this cruise, which was admittedly aided by great weather (generally sunny with temperatures in the mid-60's to 70's). The cabin and cabin service were both excellent, and the views of the Alaska coastline from the balcony ... Read more

This was our third Alaska cruise, but the first one that we opted for the Denali Tour afterwards. We had enjoyed the inside passage and decided to "conquer" more of the Alaskan wilderness. Embarkation was fairly smooth, but ... Read more

This was my first cruise. I chose Princess because I was told they are the best for Alaska cruises. Everyone I spoke to extolled how wonderful Princess cruises are. Well, I was really disappointed. So the good stuff first: the ... Read more

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

This cruise aboard the Island Princess was a "bucket list" cruise for us. We chose the cruise date because the sailing dates coincided with flights we could arrange using our air miles. We flew into Anchorage 4 days before ... 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

MY 60th Birthday treat. My bucket list was to do an Alaska Cruise and we had been recommended by friends to do this with Princess Cruises. The bar service was apalling, the most part the entertainment was poor. We count not find activities ... 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
