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

I took this cruise with two family members. For two of us this was our 2nd cruise (first on Princess) and the third person it was their first cruise ever. We all had been wanting to do an Alaskan cruise and Princess was chosen for price ... 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

We chose this cruise because it came highly recommended by friends and family over the years. We opted to have the cruise company book our air, as we were traveling a fair distance and wanted to make sure we made the sailing time. ... Read more

Do yourself a favor and spend 2-3 days before cruise in Vancouver! Such a beautiful city with very friendly people. Embarkation was interesting. A long journey through the Convention Center. We were told to get there later due to ... 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

Worst trip of my life and it had to be my honeymoon. The worst part is Princess NEVER did a single thing to smooth over the situation. If any one of the following items has occurred singularly, I probably would have survived. However, it ... Read more

Great cruise, my third on this line, and first on this ship. Princess does a great job on the Voyage of the Glaciers itinerary. Dining was excellent. We had reserved dining at the early seating and really enjoyed meeting our ... Read more

We took our 7-yr-old granddaughter on her first cruise. She loved it and we loved it through her eyes! (This was my 4th trip to Alaska.) She loved the Pelican Group activities. Michael, the naturalist was great. It was an enjoyable ... Read more

Here's a review for people who don't consider themselves "cruise people." We are quite well-traveled, never on organized tours, but thought this was the best way to see Alaska without having to kill myself planning. Did a RC ... Read more

The cruise ships was fine but two things let it down, poor food and pushy sales tactics. The food in the buffet restaurants looked good and had a good variety of choice but was pretty tasteless. The breakfast toast and bagels were kept ... Read more
