I chose this cruise to explore Alaska. The ship itself was great but the embarkation was absolutely terrible. Huge lines in customs and even that we had booked a penthouse suite, we were all in a very long line. The Cabin was very ... Read more

My wife and I had an awesome time on the Ruby Princess. We were celebrating our 30th anniversary and splurged on a balcony cabin. The weather was unbelievable. Calm seas, warm temperatures, and cloudless skies every day but one. No ... Read more

We chose this cruise for price and supposed value. This was my fifth cruise so I have something to compare it to. The ship itself was ok, and the balcony view was worth it. The crew was mostly curt. The Drink deal they try to sell you for ... Read more

We had made flight arrangements through Princess with their EZ flight program, out of Denver. This was the first concern. We tried to ascertain our seats but couldn't because this was not the policy. We had to check in with Delta 24 hours ... Read more

We chose this cruise as it suited us for the dates available and for the destinations in ports of call. Quite honestly felt that the standards had slipped considerably in the sanitising department. We had just come off another cruise ... Read more

I was on the Star Princess's last Alaska Cruise in September with my children and son-in-laws. I came down with the flu the first night out and was sick the entire cruise. Saw nothing to speak of and stayed in my interior cabin. ... Read more

This was our second Princess cruise and it met our expectations. The ship was great and our minisuite suited us perfectly. Would point out to be careful if you desire privacy as the balconies are often open rather than covered but this ... Read more

Leaving out of San Francisco is very convenient for us as we can drive to the pier in less than an hour. Grand Princess is a little too large for me, but that is a personal preference. It is however a beautiful and well maintained ship. ... Read more

So...my husband hadn't taken a vacation in six years and had never been on a cruise, so it was important that this cruise was exceptional. We flew into Seattle, spent a day there exploring (Pike's Place and EMP museum), had a seafood feast ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the land tour that we could take in conjunction with it. The land tour was very good: well run, nice facilities. We had been on a Princess cruise about 30 years ago and were disappointed. We thought we ... Read more
