Anytime dining DOES NOT mean "anytime dining". It means you cannot enter Donatello's until AFTER 7:45pm. Bernini, the traditional dining room is the ONLY anytime dining along with the Lido's Horizon Buffet. We received a ... Read more

Nothing special about Princess Cruises. First time sailing with them; far below expectations. Pre-cruise land tour operator did not show up on the very first evening of our vacation. Apparently it wasn't just our tour operator no-showed, 2 ... Read more

Everyone must visit Alaska atleast once in their lifetime! The views, cities, sights, mountains, and glaciers are all breathtaking. Being a young couple, we were prepared for the stereotypes heard of 'a lot of older people go on cruises' ... Read more

We chose a land sea tour of Alaska with the land portion first. Princess handled the land portion well in terms of organization of buses, and trains. Getting us our travel material for each hotel and providing a number of interesting ... Read more

Alaska was incredible beyond words and pictures. We traveled with my brother and his two teenage children (their first cruise). They were in adjoining mini suite D715. Our room steward opened the balcony between us and gave us freedom ... Read more

If I could give twenty stars for the perfect thing to do with our family I would! I only gave it four because we have cruised quite a bit and, in all honesty, depending on what you are looking for, the Golden is an older ship and some ... Read more

This was our second trip to Alaska in 10 years with Princess, and we wanted to venture out from the usual cruise ship tours on crowded coaches and swarms of people. We hired a gentleman named David Freeman in Ketchikan (Ketchikan Taxi ... Read more

Disclaimer up front - this was not just a cruise but a cruisetour. We had 12 days (5 land, 7 sea) with Princess, with the land portion first. We chose to sail with Princess solely because they had such an extensive network of land lodges, ... Read more

We just got back from our cruise from Seattle to Ketchikan, Juneau, Skagway Alaska, over 7 days on the Ruby Princess. Overall, we were very happy with the Cruise. Embarkation and debarkation was the easiest we had experienced. The ship ... Read more

This was my fourth cruise to Alaska, third on a Princess ship, and most likely our last cruise on Princess. The Golden, like so many ships in the Princess fleet, is an older ship. Even though it was recently refurbished it still needs a ... Read more
