Just finished a week long Alaska cruise with mixed results. Food was great. Live entertainment was a disappointment. Major issue was an excursion booked thru Princess, to see the butchart gardens in Victoria. Layover in Victoria was 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

We were pleased with the embarkation for Princess. That went very smoothly, and we were very pleased with our itinerary and excursions. We also felt that there was adequate storage in the cabin to put all of our belongings away. We ... Read more

Having been on Princess before I expected more! The dining room food was okay. We ate most of our meals in the dining room, had one dinner in the Crown Grill, which was nice! Did not eat the buffet except on the first day. We traveled ... Read more

We went on a seven day cruise to Alaska that departed from Seattle on the Ruby Princess. I just thought I would share my thoughts both good and bad on the experience. • Embarkation/Disembarkation procedures – I have to ... Read more

Pacific Princess was amazing. Clean, friendly ship with very, very good food. We took a "mini suite" because it was us and 2 kids - the bathroom was spacious by cruise standards and the shower pressure amazing! We enjoyed the ... Read more

Our Alaska cruise was perfect, other than a bit of sickness heading to Juneau due to choppy seas. The weather was beautiful and the scenery spectacular. We received great customer service from the Excursion Manager and others during the ... Read more

Most of us waited nearly two hours in line or holding areas to board. This was our 7th cruise and the 4th on Princess. Very disappointing. If you enjoy casino food, you'll like the buffet. However, the buffet personnel were friendly ... Read more

We sailed with Princess on the Golden out of San Francisco for 10 days. As we live in California this just made sense. We did very little traveling off the boat (it clocked around three thousand miles in ten days, wow) This was our ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it left from and returned to our home city. It was a nice cruise but nothing really stood out. The food in the main dining room ranged from mediocre to bad. So much cost cutting has resulted in poor ... Read more

We were a family of 5 in 3 generations traveling in two penthouse suites on the aft of the ship. We're experienced cruisers, but this was our first time on Princess. It was my mother (late 60s), me and my husband (mid 40s), and our two ... Read more

The one thing that comes to mind on this ship was "long lines". This was my first cruise on a ship of 3,000 + passengers and I expected there to be more people. I have been on 9 other cruises and never has the buffet line ... Read more

This was our 2nd cruise on the Pacific Princess (Black Sea two years ago) and our second Alaska cruise (NCL about 15 years ago). So, we knew what to expect on both counts. The Pacific Princess is our preferred size of ship; at 600+ ... Read more

Getting to Seattle from NZ is a big deal. This was our first real overseas experience, so we were very excited. This was our 3rd cruise and one of the tips we had picked up, was if only ever do one more cruise in your life, make it ... Read more
