I have to admit this was not my choice to cruise the Panama Canal, it was my husband's, but I'm so happy we went. The Island Princess is a smaller ship & the previous dry-dock made it even smaller with the removal of one of the lounges ... Read more

We have traveled through the Panama Canal three previous times and enjoyed it, but not this time. As a non-balcony passenger and photographer it is important to get unobstructed views from throughout the ship. NOT available on the Island ... Read more

This cruise marked a milestone birthday for my wife, as well as her retirement (you should be able to figure out the birthday!) after almost five decades as a Nurse, the last 25 of those as a Nursing Professor. We thought the full ... Read more

My husband and I booked this cruise last minute and had a wonderful time. The 2 day canal experience was great and informative. I was disappointed that we changed stops from Aruba to Grand Cayman.....but it was understandable with the ... Read more

We went with a group of friends and did not choose the ship. We had been on the Island Princess before cruising the Mediterranean in 2015. We remembered the ship as being a bit larger and having a few more amenities. We missed having ... Read more

Panama Canal was on my "Bucket List" and having one that departed just public transit distance from my home is my first choice. I have traveled a lot on Princess and am always happy with my Princess Cruises (Souffle!!!) The ... Read more

We choose this cruise because going through the Panama Canal had always been something we'd wanted to do. Although this is listed as a 15 day cruise we actually got on in Vancouver which made it 18 days. Vancouver is a great city to ... Read more

This re-positioning cruise was perfect for us, as we only had to fly one way. We boarded in Vancouver, having taken the ferry over from Victoria. We had a lovely mini-suite (as we did previously on our cruise to Hawaii) and our cabin ... Read more

Chose this cruise because we wanted to see the Panama Canal and it embarked from our home city of Vancouver. Embarkation went smoothly but dis-embarkation took a while to get rolling but went smoothly once it started. Ship organized ... Read more

Over pleased with all aspects of the cruise which we boarded in Vancouver Canada and through the Panama Canal and ended up at Ft. Lauderdale. Food was very good, even though we did eat mostly in the cafeteria. Entertainment was quite good ... Read more

The Island was repositioning from Vancouver to Ft. Lauderdale and offered a three day segment from Vancouver to San Francisco. Since I live in the SF Bay Area my friend and I thought it would be a fun getaway. We splurged on a Suite ... Read more

This was the third Princess cruise for my husband & I. We travelled to the embarkation port (Vancouver, BC) by Amtrak, staying in Seattle, WA and Vancouver prior to embarkation. The island Princess is looking a little worn in ... Read more

We have always wanted to see Alaska, especially the glaciers, so this seemed the perfect opportunity. Our embarkation went smoothie and we found our stateroom easily and we were thrilled with what we found. Unpacking was easy and there ... Read more

We actually went on the 13 day excursion, spending the first 6 nights on land. We arrived in Fairbanks and were happy we did land then sea. The rooms and lodge was nice with a shuttle into Fairbanks. We did the included Riverboat and ... Read more

We previously did a similar cruise on the Golden Princess in 2011, a round trip to Glacier Bay from Seattle. As previously - we enjoyed the ship, the entertainment, the food, the organisation, the itinerary and the specialist naturalists ... Read more

I've always dreamed of a cruise to Alaska. I booked the Pan Pacific in Vancouver to make this an easy trip. The ship was a pretty perfect layout for weather, lots of room on deck 7 outside but away from the weather. Balcony cabin in the ... Read more

Our travel agent told us Princess did Alaska the best, so we chose a 3 day land tour and 7 day cruise. We had no problem boarding the ship; check-in was done while we were on the rail car from Denali. We had our cruise cards in hand as ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it came highly recommended by friends and family over the years. We opted to have the cruise company book our air, as we were traveling a fair distance and wanted to make sure we made the sailing time. ... Read more

Do yourself a favor and spend 2-3 days before cruise in Vancouver! Such a beautiful city with very friendly people. Embarkation was interesting. A long journey through the Convention Center. We were told to get there later due to ... Read more

My wife retired earlier this year, and she wanted either to go to Alaska or to go on a cruise...so we did both. We opted to leave from Vancouver so we'd have less time on the open ocean than if we'd sailed from San Francisco. The ship ... Read more

This was my second Alaskan cruisetour with Princess. This summer I brought my 10-year old nephew and we had a wonderful time. We began with a 6-night land tour. Our tour director, Greg, was great. He took care of everything (including ... Read more

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
