We choose this because of the itinerary; we had been in Alaska 20 years ago and wanted to visit the same spots again. Our favorite line, Oceania does not go where we wanted to go, so we choose Princess. Not a good decision. Boarding was ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we like the at sea days as much as the port visit. glacier Bay was awesome, and the Park Rangers who boarded the ship were excellent. Sadly our weather was not great but we made the most of it. The Grand could ... Read more

We choose this cruise at the last minute, well only 6 weeks prior to cruising. We were on the Crown Princess because there were 2 cabins, a balcony and an interior across the hall from each other which was a requirement since we were ... Read more

My mom and I just got back from the northbound Voyage of the Glaciers cruise. We absolutely loved it! There is literally something for everyone. We departed from Vancouver and did an excursion in each of the ports: Ketchikan - ... Read more

This was my "test drive" cruise to decide if I want to cruise back2back for the next 20 years. I cruised in the distant past, but not for 15 years or so. I was looking for a clean, classy, calm ship, and the Crown fit this ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it was one of a few that went north from Vancouver to Anchorage and we wanted a midsize ship with a balcony rooms that left on a specific date. After reading the reviews on Princess, we felt it was the right ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it included Alaskan waterways and land cruise. Departure city of Vancouver was a plus, so we arrived a day early to tour and that was not enough. Disembarkation went fast and smooth because we chose a city tour ... Read more

I have always cruised on Celebrity or Royal Caribbean but on my trip to Alaska I thought Princess was the way to go. My review is on the ship only, not the itinerary portion (which was fabulous). Embarking and disembarking was ... Read more

This was my third Princess Cruise and 2nd time to Alaska. I chose this cruise ONLY because it left from San Francisco and the price was fair. My family and I enjoyed the cruise, but Princess service, food quality, food presentation and ... Read more

We selected this cruise simply because we did not want to fly to catch a cruise. We are seasoned cruisers (this was our 51 cruise) and this was our second time on the Grand Princess. I do not care for the layout of this ship. A number ... Read more
