We chose this cruise because we had never been to Alaska. Well, now we have and probably wont return. It was very pretty, and the glaciers were amazing, and some of the excursions we took were fun, but overall, Alaska just wasn't our cup ... Read more

We had never been to Alaska and the timing worked out well for us. Also, we had never been on a large ship in the past so this was a first for us. Our suite was lovely and the ship in general was extremely well maintained. All of the ... Read more

We have always wanted to see Alaska, especially the glaciers, so this seemed the perfect opportunity. Our embarkation went smoothie and we found our stateroom easily and we were thrilled with what we found. Unpacking was easy and there ... Read more

We couldn't have been more disappointed. The cabin was okay and that was about it. The room was a reasonable size and had bath but the bottom of the shower curtain was mouldy. We have previously sailed with Norwegian and there is no ... Read more

My sister and I decided to take this cruise as a birthday celebration for a big milestone birthday. We started out in Anchorage for a few days before starting the land portion of our trip to Mt McKinley and Denali. The McKinley Princess ... Read more

Not only did the 7 nights on this ship which were fantastic, but did the 5 day land tour from Anchorage to Denali and returned to the ship in Whittier by train. Everything was perfectly organized, and Princess took care of our every ... Read more

I always do a lot of research before any vacation. I found that Princess (Crown) goes through Glacier Bay - which many do not. It was our first cruise, and I had read many not-so-positive reviews about the wear and tear of the Crown, the ... Read more

We are long time Princess cruisers, with Platinum Captain's Circle status. This is going to sound like a negative review, and I don't mean for it to. If I were brand new to cruising, I would have had only glowing things to say about our ... Read more

I've always dreamed of a cruise to Alaska. I booked the Pan Pacific in Vancouver to make this an easy trip. The ship was a pretty perfect layout for weather, lots of room on deck 7 outside but away from the weather. Balcony cabin in the ... Read more

This was our 50th Wedding Anniversary cruise. This was our 3rd cruise to Alaska and it was the best. The weather was just great. Our first port was Juneau and again the weather was nice. No rain and no coats required for us. The shopping ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we are loyal Princess travelers, having completed 15+ cruises with the line, we had never been to Alaska, and we live in the Bay Area - what could be easier than sailing out of San Francisco? We have ... Read more

We chose this Alaskan cruise because of the natural beauty reported by others and the convenience of sailing from San Francisco and returning to the same port with several days at sea on the way out and back providing time to relax either ... Read more

We very much enjoyed our trip to Alaska on the Ruby Princess. It really did not feel like there were so many people, except when we had a limited time in port and then EVERYONE wanted to get off at the same time. Plenty of things to do, ... Read more

People who say the food is good on this ship have very low standards! I went on this cruise expecting some really special dining and was SO disappointed. The coffee is colored water. I bought a coffee card due to this. Even then, I had to ... Read more

This was our first time on the Crown Princess. Our destination was Alaska - the Inside Passage. We flew into Seattle on embarkation day and utilized the transfer from the airport to the ship. It was somewhat chaotic with all the buses ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the dates/location. We had a group of 18 and a great time was had by all. It had the friendliest captain I've ever seen! The staff was also just as friendly! It made for a great trip. Also, we have been ... Read more

I choose this particular cruise line based on reviews. My destination was to Alaska, regardless of which boat to take. However, after having sailed on Norwegian and Carnival, I opted to go with Princess based on the grander scale everyone ... Read more

My husband and I chose the Star Princess for our cruise to Alaska. After reviewing other lines we decided that the itinerary was the best on Princess. We have sailed Princess before and had a very positive experience. While the Star ... Read more

Why did we take this cruise? 1. Window cabin was only about $40 more than the cheapest interior. 2. Wanted to see the glaciers, 3. Needed to burn some leave, and 4. Crown was a decent ship the last time we sailed on her. Boarding and ... Read more

We chose Princess after reading good reviews, and because they are known for their Alaska cruises. Unfortunately we won't be travelling with Princess again. We were very disappointed in the level of service. We have travelled with ... Read more

I have cruised 4 times with Princess. Twice on the Grand, once on the Dawn and now the Coral. Although I've never been unhappy with any of the experiences aboard a Princess ship I must say the Coral experience was most certainly the best. ... Read more

We chose to take this cruise because we were going to Fairbanks, AK to visit our nephew. It was a pleasant, relaxing way to travel. The food was good, as usual and we found a waiter, Robert, from Romania, who made our mealtimes enjoyable. ... Read more

Our travel agent told us Princess did Alaska the best, so we chose a 3 day land tour and 7 day cruise. We had no problem boarding the ship; check-in was done while we were on the rail car from Denali. We had our cruise cards in hand as ... Read more
