This was my 6th cruise. But 1st cruise with Princess. We went on this cruise with 23 family members. It was to celebrate my dad's birthday. The trip itself was great. So fun to be with family and the fact that we had 3 of our cabins all ... Read more

We left Atlanta airport on July 6, 2016 for a cruise tour vacation on the Island Princess. We flew in to Vancouver, where we boarded our ship. Everything from the airport to getting on the ship went pretty smoothly. We had an early ... Read more

Princess Cruises was an excellent choice for our Alaskan vacation! We stayed on the cruise ship for 7 nights and then had 6 nights in Princess Lodges in Mt. McKinley, Denali and Fairbanks. We had a balcony which we loved and especially on ... Read more

We had glorious weather on our Alaskan cruise with temps between 18 and 22 celsius (68 - 72 Fahrenheit). so that makes a big difference in how one enjoys any travel experience. Besides the effect of the weather, overall, our trip was ... Read more

We did the Southbound Denali Explorer Cruise tour. Princess did a fantastic job every step of the way. Logistics were handled explained clearly and handled smoothly. Our luggage appeared every day when promised if not earlier. Service ... Read more

Had a good deal that included gratuities and one speciality dining. Also toured Glacier Bay. Had a mini suite on Dolphin deck mid ship which was great. Plenty of room. There were laundreymats on board. $3..00 each for washing and drying ... Read more

This was a disappointing cruise. While there were some highlights, most were not due to Princess or the vessel itself. The boarding was wonderful. The staggered boarding couldn't have gone better. We arrived at out appointment today ... Read more

This was our first cruse, and we decided on Princess at the recommendation of a friend, and the available dates we wanted to travel. We were skeptical first time cruisers. We thought we would be bored, that there would't really be much ... Read more

I would give this cruise 5 anchors or the top rating despite a re-occurring problem in our cabin bathroom. The toilet would not flush about 4 out of the 7 days until it was fixed from below. We were on the Lido deck in an outside cabin and ... Read more

Alaska is a beautiful, must see destination. Seeing it from a cruise ship is not the most ideal, but it is convenient and fun. The first day and a half is spent at sea with nothing to really see. Ketchikan is not the best port and we ... Read more

We went with a group of friends on the Inside Passage Cruise on the Crown Princess. The itinerary was good. I'd always heard that Princess was the "cream of the crop", thus we didn't mind paying a little more. But we did not ... Read more

This was our third time on a Princess Cruise ship and our 21st cruise so far. The Coral Princess was a bit disappointing because of its “tired” look and feel in about 60% of the ship. The only reason we choose Princess for ... Read more

This was our 21st cruise and our 3rd on Princess. I wish you could give 1/2 stars because I would have rated the cruise 3.5 but it did not deserve 4 stars. Remember that average or average plus is not the same as bad. Pros: The public ... Read more

Princess cruises has the worst customer service of any business I have experienced in the travel industry. We had a group of 20 including 10 kids and they were awful at managing the group at the kids. Once they have your money with the ... Read more

This was overall the best vacation I ever took. As the date became closer, I did become more nervous after reading some reviews of the ship and dining services. I could not believe how surprised I was that the ship and food both lived up ... Read more

This is our third cruise from San Francisco to Alaska. We are from Sacramento, CA and our travel agency provided free bus transportation to S.F. and return. We loaded our baggage onto the bus in Sacramento and it was delivery to our ... Read more

This was our first cruise and we had looked on cruise critic to see what our experience might be like. This seems like the kind of thing that is on everyone's bucket list and talking with other passenger's confirmed this. Overall, we are ... Read more

Intro: it was just myself and my husband traveling on this cruise; we are in our mid-50s and live in Texas. While we wanted to see Alaska, we also enjoy the "onboard experience" that a cruise provides and the Ruby had ... Read more

Splurged on suite, both for extra room and perks web site advised we would receive - so we paid more than double high end cabin rates. Loved our room steward and restaurant maitre d, waiter and assistant waiter. Most employees unaware of ... Read more

We planned a family trip for 10 people and 4 more family members joined us. We selected the Alaska destination because most of us had never been to Alaska and the trip was planned for June. We were a diverse group ranging in age from ... Read more

Alaska was the draw, it is a great destination. Did the land portion after the cruise and enjoyed it as well. Princess is changing and not for the better. This is our third Princess cruise and next time I think we will try another company. ... Read more

We booked with Princess to Alaska as it was our 20th Wedding Anniversary, and our Cabin was decorated to celebrate this, the extra personal touches made us feel extra special. This is our second cruise with Princess. Princess Ruby was ... Read more

The Voyage of The Glaciers cruise itself was a great experience, and I heartily recommend it! Our only dissatisfaction with the cruise had to do with the before embarkation and after embarkation experiences. We chose to spend the night ... Read more

Choose Princess as recommendation from our travel agent. Boarding and exiting ship was well organized. The ship is large and while they give you a map it took several days to get around comfortably. We had a mini suite and it was very ... Read more

Just did an Alaskan cruise with Princess. The itinerary was great and Princess does pretty well entertaining during days at sea. Their technology is excellent - for example, their "Voice of the Ocean" competition featured real ... Read more
