Overall Member Rating
4th Time Sailing to Alaska
Embarkation: San Francisco
After a short wait in the waiting room, we were able to board and go to our cabin to drop off luggage before going to lunch. My cabin was AFT just beyond the elevator and stairs. Very convenient location to the launderette on decks 9 and 11, MDR on deck 6. I didn't feel a lot of rocking during rough weather.
Hector Bernal was our cabin steward. He did an excellent job!
Food was good. Coffee was bad. Service was excellent.
I wish we had more time in Victoria. Shops didn't open until 10 am and we had to be onboard at 1:30 pm. We took the local bus #30 OR #31 More from/to the ship to downtown. $2.50 CDN one way or $5.00 CDN daypass. You cannot get daypass on the bus. Must be purchases at one of their local authorized stores like 7-11.
We also took the local bus "Blue Line" ($2.00 daypass)in Ketchikan to Totem Bight Park. It stopped at the local WALMART along the way to the park.
Good trip on the GRAND PRINCESS. Less
Cabin review: BDC641 Balcony
C641 near crews storage area. Larger balcony than those on decks 9,11,12. Half of balcony covered. People on balconies above could look down on us and we could look down on those below us.We could hear gears grinding as they were lowering the lifeboats used for tendering.Read All Balcony (BD) Reviews >>
