We chose this cruise because of the land tour that we could take in conjunction with it. The land tour was very good: well run, nice facilities. We had been on a Princess cruise about 30 years ago and were disappointed. We thought we ... Read more

7th cruise with Princess, 4th to Alaska – Princess is just the right amount of nice and value. The Grand used to be #1 in the industry and now it’s criticized as old. There’s some rust spots and sagging furniture but ... Read more

I have been on about 50-60 cruises, so I would think that I am a seasoned traveler and know what to expect for my money. To say that the cruise staff is poorly managed would be an understatement. This is a beautiful and stately ship. ... Read more

Let's start with what we liked because it's the shorter list. The dining room food and service were great. We would have been pleased to have found the Michelangelo as a local restaurant. The excursions were fantastic. I can't really ... Read more

We really wanted to do the Alaska Inside Passage Cruise. We booked Princess as they seem to fit our needs the best. We booked a mini-suite, as we preferred a certain side. If you are considering an Alaska cruise, a balcony is a must, as ... Read more

This was our first cruise with Princess, and our first to Alaska. We did a four day land tour before the cruise, all with Princess. We were a group of 12, some family, some friends. We were not very impressed with the land portion. ... Read more
