My wife and I had an awesome time on the Ruby Princess. We were celebrating our 30th anniversary and splurged on a balcony cabin. The weather was unbelievable. Calm seas, warm temperatures, and cloudless skies every day but one. No ... Read more

We have always wanted to a Denali Cruisetour so we decided to do Alaska again. Love the convenience of getting on board so close to home and only having to fly back one way. The cruise itself was uneventful, the weather wasn't the ... Read more

This was our first cruise with Princess. I booked a cruise tour because of their experience in Alaska. I arranged for the trip as a north bound cruise from Vancouver followed by the land tour. I would not suggest this as the optimum ... Read more

One week on land, one on the ship to fulfill a dream of seeing Alaska. The land portion was excellent. Nice accommodations and got to see so much! The ship seemed much more about Botox and art auctions than Alaska. The naturalist was ... Read more

Embarkation at Seattle: Easy. Line always kept moving. Room was ready when we got there. Service: Exceptional. I’m not one who usually goes for being “pampered,” but I felt like a king (or a prince since this is ... Read more

After reading 4 bad reviews in a row right before our cruise I was not expecting much. We've been on 4 cruises in the last 5 years. Two on NCL in Europe and this was our second princess cruise in Alaska. This time was a family reunion ... Read more

Cruise was ok but there are major opportunities for improvement. Regular rooms are average. Shower is so small you can't raise your arms to wash your hair without hitting walls and shower curtain. Room attendant was very good and ... Read more

This cruise aboard the Island Princess was a "bucket list" cruise for us. We chose the cruise date because the sailing dates coincided with flights we could arrange using our air miles. We flew into Anchorage 4 days before ... Read more

We chose this cruise for price and supposed value. This was my fifth cruise so I have something to compare it to. The ship itself was ok, and the balcony view was worth it. The crew was mostly curt. The Drink deal they try to sell you for ... Read more

We had made flight arrangements through Princess with their EZ flight program, out of Denver. This was the first concern. We tried to ascertain our seats but couldn't because this was not the policy. We had to check in with Delta 24 hours ... Read more
