I choice this cruise because of Princess history in Alaska and their price in comparison to Disney. We have cruised with Disney many times and have come to expect a certain level of service, food, entertainment, etc. Princess is not ... Read more

Overall Princess standards although still high have fallen. This was a relocatoipn criuise so that maybe the reason. We found that most staff seem to go through the motions,so except for your cabin steward don't expect them to go mout ... Read more

We have long wanted to see Alaska and this was a convenient Drop-and-Go opportunity. Unfortunately, things were pretty disorganized, starting with a completely chaotic embarkation process in Vancouver. To make things worse, one of us uses ... Read more

Emphatically recommended by a friend and cruise travel agent who's been on 35 cruises. This was definitely a challenge for someone with a bad back who sometimes needs a cane. The embarcation in Seattle was probably the worst experience - a ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of it's location and destination. It was an Anniversary/Birthday event. We also thought that it was a reputable cruise line. The steward was the only real bright spot. 30 % crew was nice 40 % marking time ... Read more

Embarkation in Vancouver was a gong show. It took almost 3 1/2 hours to get on the ship due to the border security being overwhelmed by the number of ships in port. Ship did not sail until after 7 PM (originally scheduled for 4:30 ... Read more

The Ruby Princess is very clean ship that we found to be pampering yet exciting. There was always a lot to do and the cruise staff kept it fun. As soon as we boarded in Seattle the cruise director and his staff had us dancing up on deck to ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we wanted to take a Princess cruise. We had enough miles on SW to fly round trip from Seattle. The price was reasonable. We wanted a cruise with less children on board. We enjoyed the entertainment and the ... Read more

We had a wonderful time sailing with Princess Cruises. Embarkation and disembarkation went very smoothly and efficiently. We had an inside cabin (A319), which was simple but met all our needs. We loved that our stateroom was one floor ... Read more

A very good trip. Food is not quite as good as some I have sailed on but good for most part. Cabin steward GERARDO is awesome! Can not say enough about him. Dining room service was a bit lacking , our dining staff during assigned ... Read more

We have traveled on both the Allure and Oasis of the Seas with RCI and Solstice and Millennium with Celebrity. Compared to them Princess is unfortunately a way way distant last. First and foremost the quality of the cooking in the main ... Read more

The cabin was fine and the beds were comfortable. The closet was large but it did not have enough hangers. Glad I took foldable plastic ones. They came in really handy. We had ordered kosher meals but they were not served with plastic ... Read more

Alaska is a spectacular place. By land, sea or air, it is unbelievable. This review does not reflect Alaska whatsoever. This review is strictly about the Island Princess ship I went to Alaska the year before on Royal Caribbean. What a ... Read more

This was out 11th cruise to Alaska. Most have been on Princess, several on the Grand. She had a recent face lift and had the new beds installed, which freshened her up quite a bit. The scenery in Alaska is breath-taking. Food on the ... Read more

We always enjoy a cruise to Alaska. This was no exception and the ship is well kept and comfortable. The Captain kept us right on schedule and for an early in the year cruise the weather was pretty good. Glacier Bay was beautiful. ... Read more

There were a few hiccups on this cruise which made it rather sub par. The biggest issue I had with Star Princess is the near total lack of catering for vegans. There were absolutely no Vegans meals on any menu. Luckily I had ... Read more

We have sailed on four different Princess ships and can’t fault the food, entertainment and service on any of their ships. That includes our recent trip on the Coral Princess. This sailing was part of a Princess Land/Cruise tour that ... Read more

We have cruised Princess several times before and were happy with their product. However, this time things were definitely different. First, Vancouver was total unprepared for the start of the cruise season (not Princesses fault). They ... Read more

I chose this cruise because Princess was supposedly rated the number one cruise line to Alaska 10 years straight, apparently, no one else was rated or the bar is set very low. This was my third cruise on Princess, second on Ruby, however, ... Read more

4 hours to board in Vancouver was terrible , 3 cruise ships all loading at the same time I would avoid this at all costs . When you get on board you get a letter warning you of the Zika virus , there are handwashing stations at every ... Read more
