People who say the food is good on this ship have very low standards! I went on this cruise expecting some really special dining and was SO disappointed. The coffee is colored water. I bought a coffee card due to this. Even then, I had to ... Read more

This was our first time on the Crown Princess. Our destination was Alaska - the Inside Passage. We flew into Seattle on embarkation day and utilized the transfer from the airport to the ship. It was somewhat chaotic with all the buses ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the dates/location. We had a group of 18 and a great time was had by all. It had the friendliest captain I've ever seen! The staff was also just as friendly! It made for a great trip. Also, we have been ... Read more

Sixth cruise with Princess. Did the Southbound Voyage of the Glaciers from Whittier to Vancouver. Top two cruises with Princess. Coral Princess could use a face lift but overall a nice ship with the usual nice shopping areas and ... Read more

I choose this particular cruise line based on reviews. My destination was to Alaska, regardless of which boat to take. However, after having sailed on Norwegian and Carnival, I opted to go with Princess based on the grander scale everyone ... Read more

My husband and I chose the Star Princess for our cruise to Alaska. After reviewing other lines we decided that the itinerary was the best on Princess. We have sailed Princess before and had a very positive experience. While the Star ... Read more

Why did we take this cruise? 1. Window cabin was only about $40 more than the cheapest interior. 2. Wanted to see the glaciers, 3. Needed to burn some leave, and 4. Crown was a decent ship the last time we sailed on her. Boarding and ... Read more

We chose Princess after reading good reviews, and because they are known for their Alaska cruises. Unfortunately we won't be travelling with Princess again. We were very disappointed in the level of service. We have travelled with ... Read more

I have cruised 4 times with Princess. Twice on the Grand, once on the Dawn and now the Coral. Although I've never been unhappy with any of the experiences aboard a Princess ship I must say the Coral experience was most certainly the best. ... Read more

We chose to take this cruise because we were going to Fairbanks, AK to visit our nephew. It was a pleasant, relaxing way to travel. The food was good, as usual and we found a waiter, Robert, from Romania, who made our mealtimes enjoyable. ... Read more

Our travel agent told us Princess did Alaska the best, so we chose a 3 day land tour and 7 day cruise. We had no problem boarding the ship; check-in was done while we were on the rail car from Denali. We had our cruise cards in hand as ... Read more

Ship and towns (Ketchikan, Juneau and Skagway) are a giant vacuum cleaner for your last cent. Consider the cruise either as transport to additional pay-for tours, or a temporary hold on mundane concerns. There is little to see from the ... Read more

We went with a group from our local senior center. We had not sailed with Princess before and looked forward to the experience. We were impressed with how fast the boarding procedure went - fast and no long lines! The service on the ship ... Read more

Buffet food was almost uneatable. Breakfast was by fare the worst. Food in main dinning was not much better. In fact the soups were cold, bread was hard and general taste of the main course just not what you would expect.. The coffee was ... Read more

We thoroughly enjoyed our cruise - a little pricey but this was Alaska. Stayed in a mini suite allowing us more room with a full size tub. Our Steward [Ricky] was excellent and attentive. The food in the main dining room was excellent ... Read more

This was our first cruise and I suggest to all to travel to Alaska on whichever cruise line fits your taste. Alaska was breath taking and surreal in August. We were wearing jackets off of the boat on the excursions. We flew into Vancouver ... Read more

1.We enjoyed our meals in the Horizon Grill (buffet). Service was good and the view out of the large floor to ceiling windows was fantastic. Salad and fruits were very fresh – impressive considering that we were on the Alaska cruise. ... Read more

We love Princess and have never traveled on any other cruise line but it is time to update the Grand. The crew and staff were wonderful and I would give them 5 stars. A lot of buckets all around the boat. The food in the dining room ... Read more
