The grandparents offered to watch the kids so my husband and I could go on a vacation this summer. We've been on several cruises, and my husband has never been to Alaska, so we figured it was time. We flew into the Anchorage airport the ... Read more

So this was my third cruise, with a previous cruise on Carnival (Caribbean) and Norwegian (Greek Islands). The biggest negative of this cruise was right at the start. Embarkation was a nightmare. First we had to sit in chairs in ... Read more

This was our second cruise on Princess and last year we sailed with Celebrity. Pros: Embarkation went smoothly at Vancouver except for US Customs. Disembarkation at each port & the final stop at Whittier was excellent; certainly ... Read more

This was our first cruise so we didn't really know what to expect so there are pros and cons and some of each come from what your expectations of your cruise vacation is. The food was wonderful and the staff in all the dinning venues were ... Read more

We booked a tour of Alaska for four. We wanted a "Nothing to Worry about" trip and pretty much that is what we got. I have not traveled outside the US since the boarder changes and that was an eye opener. The Princess Cruise ... Read more

My parents have enjoyed several cruises in their retirement, but they have not enjoyed any cruise more than a 2013 Princess cruise to Alaska. So, they decided to take our entire family--13 people all together--on a once-in-a-lifetime ... Read more

We flew into Vancouver a day early and stayed at the Westin Bayshore Hotel. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and want to come back to the area again. The Westin is located right on the Sea Wall, which is a wonderful place to walk or ride ... Read more

We just returned from a 2 week Land/Cruise Tour, arranged by Princess Cruises, to Alaska on the Grand Princess. Although we are experienced cruisers, this was our first time travelling with Princess. I must say our disappointment began ... Read more

I did the pre-cruise land tour to McKinley and Denali Lodges. Wonderful. No complaints there. Then we rode the train down to Whittier and boarded the ship. I loved the Grand. Everyone was super nice. I had no problems at all anywhere ... Read more

Overall, the ship was beautiful, I read a lot of reviews before leaving and found the ship to be in much better shape than some of the reviews had suggested. There were no leaking buckets, no sewage smell, and no flooded carpets. The ... Read more

This cruise was just stunning. We were early in the season and had amazing weather, as everyone kept telling us; cruise staff, drivers, rangers etc. In fact, it was so perfect, I doubt I would ever do it again, knowing how hard it would ... Read more

Overall we enjoyed our cruise on the Grand Princess. It was not a perfect trip, but in our opinion the positives definitely outweighed all negatives. Embarkation was ok. We arrived later and missed the largest crowd. The ... Read more

We are seniors, and this was our 17th cruise, so I feel we can give some relevant feedback. The Grand Princess is an older ship, but it is kept in very good condition. The staff is fantastic; they are always positive and ready to ... Read more
