This was our 10th Princess cruise, having also cruised with RCCL, MSC, Carnival and HAL. We have been on the Island 3 times and was a little worried with more people from the added cabins, less upper deck space and a sold out ship for ... Read more

MY 60th Birthday treat. My bucket list was to do an Alaska Cruise and we had been recommended by friends to do this with Princess Cruises. The bar service was apalling, the most part the entertainment was poor. We count not find activities ... Read more

This was my second Princess cruise, and my first Alaska itinerary. While the itinerary was excellent, as was the food and staff, that is where the positives end. I was tremendously disappointed with Princess, and will not cruise them ... Read more

The destination (Alaska) was fantastic. The stunning scenery was enhanced by near perfect weather for the entire cruise. The ship (Crown Princess), was clean and we saw no evidence of it being in anything other than good order throughout ... Read more

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

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

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
