We enjoyed a cruisetour to Anchorage, Denali, and the inside passage on the Coral Princess in 2013. This time, we chose a cruisetour to Fairbanks, Denali, and the inside passage on the Island Princess. We enjoyed the tour. Princess does ... 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 was on a 12 day Land/cruise with Princess. They did an awesome job of shuffling us and our luggage around.There was a representative that picked us up at the airport and got us all organized. I would suggest to do the land portion first ... 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 left Atlanta airport on July 6, 2016 for a cruise tour vacation on the Island Princess. We flew in to Vancouver, where we boarded our ship. Everything from the airport to getting on the ship went pretty smoothly. We had an early ... Read more

Princess Cruises was an excellent choice for our Alaskan vacation! We stayed on the cruise ship for 7 nights and then had 6 nights in Princess Lodges in Mt. McKinley, Denali and Fairbanks. We had a balcony which we loved and especially on ... 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

Northbound Voyage of the Glaciers cruise then 2 days Denali, 2 days Mckinley, and back to Anchorage. Uneventful boarding process. We walked on board just a few minutes after noon and were pleasantly surprised to find that the cabins were ... 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

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
