We cruised on Golden Princess on Jun 23rd voyage to Glacier Bay. Alaska was absolutely stunning and definitely worth going back again in future. We found cruising Alaska was so enjoyable and convenient. Cabin: We had inside cabin but the room was spacious and clean. We especially liked the closet space outside the bathroom, which made the room seemed bigger. Food: The food on Golden Princess was disappointing. The food in Horizon Court (buffet) was so limited. Dining room had a good variety but we often find the food dry or lukewarm. We tried Crown Grill for one night - the steaks were juicy and good. However, when we wanted to order an extra order of main dish, the waiter discouraged us and told us to wait till we finished our steaks first. We thought that was very unusual. Highlight: The highlight for us on this cruise was Michael Modzelewski. We thoroughly enjoyed all four of his lectures and his commentaries on the ship. He was also very friendly and spend a lot of time chatting with us about Alaska. He truly had a passion for nature and Alaska. We loved him!

Port and Shore Excursions

Whale Watching
We had a smaller boat of about 35 people with Captain Larry. The journey was nice and saw many humpback whales from a distant.
Port
We took a local bus to Totem Bight State Park. We wish we had more time in this port.

White Pass Scenic Railway
Amazing scenery. We had to book through Princess because other independent tours were fully booked. Thought our bus driver and guide was really good & funny. But didn't like having a huge bus load of people everywhere we went.
Port
Victoria was beautiful. We just walked to downtown since we had visited this place many times before.
