First time with Princess (the Emerald Princess). Cruised Alaska June 4, 2017. The ship was fine and the food and bars were great, but the entertainment was a bit lacking; focusing too much on passenger participation, like game shows and ... Read more

Land portion was great - except for placing your suitcase in the hallway of the Lodges about 6 am. Nice accommodations at three Princess lodges, pricey food in dining rooms, excellent included tour packages. (By the way, nobody ... Read more

My husband and I chose this cruise as we had always wanted to see Alaska and the glaciers there and we were not disappointed with the scenery and beauty we saw. For this cruise we chose the mini suite option for our cabin and were ... Read more

I liked the idea of a one way cruise, rather than a round-trip journey. Very smooth embarkation process. The scenery couldn't have been more stunning, and we were favored with good weather 6 out of 7 days; I've been told that's a rare ... Read more

Loved the cruise however this ship has seen better days. There are maintenance issues with sewer smells in the stairwells, tattered furniture in public areas and bathrooms that have holes in the doors, with lots of rust all around. Our ... Read more

My husband and I just returned from a 10 day cruise to Alaska. This was our 5th cruise on the Grand Princess and yes, she is getting old, that being said the ship is only as good as her crew. We had a great crew. No complaints. ... Read more

The Grand Princess is aging gracefully, don't waste your time looking for faults. Pier 27 in San Francisco makes the check in process painless. Such a vast improvement over the former Pier 35. The food was wonderful outside of a rib eye ... Read more

The trip to Alaska is so beautiful. This one didn't disappoint us. The weather was perfect while in Alaska, very little rain and mild weather throughout. We couldn't get into Tracy Arm Fjord, and had to settle for Endicott instead. ... Read more

This was our 9th cruise with Princess, and second on the Emerald, and 4th Inside Passage to Alaska. I was more disappointed in this cruise than in the past. Because of the "Club Class" they would not allow you to eat lunch in ... Read more

This was a "bucket list" trip for my husband and me. We added a 7-day land tour to get as much of the Alaska experience as possible. The ship, crew, excursions and glacier views were awesome. Our Star Princess Aloha deck balcony ... Read more

This ship wasn't our choice. It was part of a scenic trip. The ship itself is lovely but it does need refurbishing. Our cabin was on deck 11 Baja 709. Good place on ship. Dining was great. Was not rapped in the restaurant. The Amalfi - It ... Read more

I wish I could say something good about the food but in all honesty I have to say food was prepared long before it was served, not a good thing. The desserts looked very nice but really had little to no "taste". Service in ... Read more

First, this was not an average cruise but I could not get this to change at the top of the page. This was a 5 star cruise and maybe even a 6 star if I could. We choose this cruise many months ago because it is easy to get to San ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the convenience of leaving from San Francisco and being able to easily drive from the east bay and park near the port. The embarkation went smooth enough but time consuming with long lines. Some people ... Read more

This was the first Alaska Cruise for both of us and we chose it particularly because it was round trip from San Francisco so no flying was involved. Embarkation was great and as Elite Members of the Captain's Circle we got onboard quickly ... Read more

Even though the ship is 19 years old it is still a very nice ship. You can see that Princess has done an excellent job in keeping the ship in good shape. Sure there are some rust spots on the outside but you have to remember this ship ... Read more
