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

For an Alaska cruise, there are a lot of wonderful reasons to go, but a big reason for the trip is to see and hear the glaciers. I was really looking forward to this, having been to the Hubbard glacier with Holland America, which was a ... Read more

We've been on seven cruises, including this cruise - five Carnival and one Celebrity. I expected much more from Princess - they're supposed to be top of the line. The food selection was poor. If you don't like fish, you options are ... 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

My husband and I have cruised 8 times now, (only 2 not on Princess) and truly love, love, love Alaska so we decided we'd go this year and leave out of San Francisco a port we had not been to. We went a day early and stayed at the stately ... 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

My wife retired earlier this year, and she wanted either to go to Alaska or to go on a cruise...so we did both. We opted to leave from Vancouver so we'd have less time on the open ocean than if we'd sailed from San Francisco. The ship ... Read more

I wished to travel to Alaska, so after a couple of years of thinking of it I chose an organized trip that offered this possibility… a very pleasant cruise that would take me to Alaska. For me the time spent offshore was too ... Read more
