There were 5 in our party (yes, one was a single and had to pay double) and we're in our 60s. We have cruised on NCL, RCCL, and CCL before. For cleanliness, style, service, and FOOD this was by far the best cruise we have ever taken. ... Read more

First time on Star Princess, second cruise with Princess, probably the last. The ship is fast heading toward being in poor condition. We found buckets positioned around catching water leaks throughout the ship. Wish they had a bucket ... Read more

Wife and I were traveling with our friends and both couples have cruised many times. We flew or waited to fly all day from Boston to MSP and then to Fairbanks. No problems just a very long day, perhaps I would spend a day in between next ... Read more

I had a wonderful two week vacation in Alaska. Reading some of the reviews, I did feel some trepidation, but it was unfounded. I think some people aren’t happy if they don’t have something to complain about. It's a ... Read more

Fantastic cruise! The entertainment was top notch - piano entertainer Oliver Holland (and his fan club) in the Promenade lounge was amazing and really made this trip fun and memorable. The shows were much better than those I've seen on ... Read more

My sister decided to get married on a cruise. Cool! We had a bad experience with princess before and I was hesitant to give them a second shot, but we did. The online check-in was easy. We got to the port, and security was pretty fast. ... Read more

Sailed from Seattle for a 7 night Cruise to Alaska. Overall enjoyed our cruise. Weather could have been a little kinder. Nice destinations, Skagway being my favourite, Ketchikan a close second. It would have got my first vote, but only ... Read more

I thoroughly enjoyed the Cruise itself. There was ample time available to do your own thing or complete a pre booked land tour in each of the 3 towns visited. Ketchikan (my personal favourite) is a 1/2 day visit. Juneau is a full day and ... Read more

The food ruined the cruise for me. I had difficulty finding anything edible. The fish was undercooked, the chicken was like leather. The lobster was so tough it almost broke my teeth. The smell of bad fish was present on the floor of ... Read more
