Not so Golden Princess
On a positive note, our cabin stewardess was wonderful and the head waiter in the dining room had gone out of his way to help us stay gluten free. Our room was fabulous. Having the balcony absolutely made this trip. To be hanging out there in Glacier Bay was the best experience ever! Standing there and listening to the ice cracking and then watching while it was calving was totally awesome! Then, as we were leaving the bay, watching the whales was a great experience too. Too bad the best photo appears to be a whales tail, but I have the vision in my head of watching two humpback whales breach in front of the ship. Wow.
This trip was a contrast in extremes. The absolute beauty of Alaska mixed with frustration and exhaustion caused by Princess mixed again with the warm service people they have working for them. Less
