Crown Princess Alaska cruise May 17, 2014
That afternoon, the ship visited the Hubbard Glacier and there was a Naturalist who was describing the sights of the Glacier. However, for anyone trying to watch the view from the Web Cam on their television sets, they were out of luck as the Webcam was covered with water and ice droplets and was totally useless.
For many late risers breakfast was a journey to the Horizon food buffet. The food selection was good, but the seating inadequate. Princess had an adjoin buffet area called Caribe, but would let anyone sit there after getting their food from the Horizon buffet. Less
Cabin was typical balcony configuration. Enough storage space . Shower Curtain not long enough for the shower, about 1 & 1/2 inches to short. So after every shower, we had to wipe up the water with other floor mats we requested or towels.
Port and Shore Excursions
White Pass Scenic Railway
Not as promised. This excursion was a supposed to be a Motor coach tour to the Klondike Summit, and the White Pass Railroad back to port. First of all, after exiting the ship we asked a Princess person where to meet the tour bus. She pointed us to the direction to the beginning of the pier and told us to go there. Well, we walked back and fourth twice before, we asked another Tour operator for help. He pointed us to a lady who was holding a Tour numbered sign against her chest, instead of holding it high overhead, where everyone could see it. She told the group who gathered around her to wait in a covered area for the contracted ride. What was advertised as a Motor coach with restroom facilities, turned out to be two oversized shuttle busses with no bathrooms. They overloaded the first shuttle bus with 25 people and insufficient seating and the other shuttle bus only had 14 people on it.
