Great cruise but....
We did a four day land package. We left the ship at Whittier and boarded Princesses' train to Denali. Some of your luggage (dress clothes and other cruise-wear) not needed for your land portion is forwarded to your last destination and your other luggage joins you that night. Train ride was great but a little long - almost ten hours. Beautiful scenery. Food aboard the train was good but expensive.
The Denali Princess could you a little re-freshening. Food was very expensive - a 6 oz Yoplait yogurt is $3. A $20 pizza - well lets just say I've had better frozen pizza. A breakfast burrito (terrible), a ham & cheese couscent (sp), 2 coffees and 2 bran muffins was over $22 and the line was LONG!!!!!
Great tour of Denali and it was off to the McKinley Princess Lodge. Much better accommodations but food was just as expensive but much better. The Captain Cook Hotel in Anchorage was nice. Less
Cabin review: C302
We were upgraded from an ocean view to a handicapped room (we're not handicapped). Appreciated the extra room and the over-sized balcony.
