I'm not sure where to begin... the food or the constant Sewer smell? My husband and I have cruised to Alaska 2 years ago with Celebrity Solstice and being on this ship was hell compared to our last trip. I don't typically write reviews ... Read more

This was my 6th cruise. But 1st cruise with Princess. We went on this cruise with 23 family members. It was to celebrate my dad's birthday. The trip itself was great. So fun to be with family and the fact that we had 3 of our cabins all ... Read more

Had a good deal that included gratuities and one speciality dining. Also toured Glacier Bay. Had a mini suite on Dolphin deck mid ship which was great. Plenty of room. There were laundreymats on board. $3..00 each for washing and drying ... Read more

This was a disappointing cruise. While there were some highlights, most were not due to Princess or the vessel itself. The boarding was wonderful. The staggered boarding couldn't have gone better. We arrived at out appointment today ... Read more

We went with a group of friends on the Inside Passage Cruise on the Crown Princess. The itinerary was good. I'd always heard that Princess was the "cream of the crop", thus we didn't mind paying a little more. But we did not ... Read more

This was our third time on a Princess Cruise ship and our 21st cruise so far. The Coral Princess was a bit disappointing because of its “tired” look and feel in about 60% of the ship. The only reason we choose Princess for ... Read more

This was our 21st cruise and our 3rd on Princess. I wish you could give 1/2 stars because I would have rated the cruise 3.5 but it did not deserve 4 stars. Remember that average or average plus is not the same as bad. Pros: The public ... Read more

Princess cruises has the worst customer service of any business I have experienced in the travel industry. We had a group of 20 including 10 kids and they were awful at managing the group at the kids. Once they have your money with the ... Read more

This was overall the best vacation I ever took. As the date became closer, I did become more nervous after reading some reviews of the ship and dining services. I could not believe how surprised I was that the ship and food both lived up ... Read more

This was our first cruise and we had looked on cruise critic to see what our experience might be like. This seems like the kind of thing that is on everyone's bucket list and talking with other passenger's confirmed this. Overall, we are ... Read more

Splurged on suite, both for extra room and perks web site advised we would receive - so we paid more than double high end cabin rates. Loved our room steward and restaurant maitre d, waiter and assistant waiter. Most employees unaware of ... Read more

We planned a family trip for 10 people and 4 more family members joined us. We selected the Alaska destination because most of us had never been to Alaska and the trip was planned for June. We were a diverse group ranging in age from ... Read more

Alaska was the draw, it is a great destination. Did the land portion after the cruise and enjoyed it as well. Princess is changing and not for the better. This is our third Princess cruise and next time I think we will try another company. ... Read more

We booked with Princess to Alaska as it was our 20th Wedding Anniversary, and our Cabin was decorated to celebrate this, the extra personal touches made us feel extra special. This is our second cruise with Princess. Princess Ruby was ... Read more

The Voyage of The Glaciers cruise itself was a great experience, and I heartily recommend it! Our only dissatisfaction with the cruise had to do with the before embarkation and after embarkation experiences. We chose to spend the night ... Read more

Choose Princess as recommendation from our travel agent. Boarding and exiting ship was well organized. The ship is large and while they give you a map it took several days to get around comfortably. We had a mini suite and it was very ... Read more

Just did an Alaskan cruise with Princess. The itinerary was great and Princess does pretty well entertaining during days at sea. Their technology is excellent - for example, their "Voice of the Ocean" competition featured real ... Read more

Our friends who had never cruised before selected this cruise line and ship because their bank card gave them additional shipboard credits for using. Very disappointed for my friends who had never been on one and picked out the cruise and ... Read more

My wife and I planned for an Alaskan cruise back in 2015. We selected Princess in that we both have sailed with Princess in the past and have appreciated the level of service that they provided. This cruise was one that showed me that ... Read more

This was our first cruise. We chose Princess cruise lines because they included Glacier Bay National Park on all their itineraries. We chose a 12 day Cruisetour which included 7 days northbound cruise followed by 5 day land tour with 1 ... Read more

Princess Cruise is rated the best for Alaska. We did a 7-day cruise with an 8-day land tour. The cruise was very good. The only negatives were that some of the wait staff at dinner weren't as well trained as they should be and one never ... Read more

Picked this cruise for the destinations rather than the ship.. but... the ship was marvelous! The ports, Ketchikan, Juneau and Skagway are terrific. Cruising Glacier Bay National Park and College Fjords was majestic. Scenery was ... Read more

My wife and I are " Elite" Princess cruisers. We've been on many Princess ships and a couple of non-Princess ships. We have not cruised for about 4 years due to other trips/vacation destinations. We are just retired (65ish); this ... Read more

This was not our first cruise to Alaska, nor will it be our last. This was our first time sailing with princess. We went with the traditional dining and we loved our waiters, they had our drinks on the table waiting for us and knew what we ... Read more

We sailed as a family of 9 to Alaska. We had a one year old grandchild, our 5 kids (mid 20's to 30), my husband and I (50's), plus my elderly mother (80). I was worried before we left that our wide range of interests and ages would leave ... Read more
