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

This trip was on our bucket list. My husband had just finished treatment from prostate cancer and we were celebrating his cancer free status. The timing was right and we wanted to do the land portion before the cruise. We has a great time ... Read more

What a great cruise. We did the land portion of the cruise/tour first and we are glad we did. Starting with 2 days in Fairbanks, followed by 2 days at the Denali Lodge and then on to the ship, was much better than doing it the other way. ... Read more

Our experience on the Coral Princess was top notch from embarkation to debarkation. Embarkation was fast, organized, and smooth. Cabins were ready immediately unlike our previous experiences on Norwegian. The ship was up to date, ... Read more

Alaska is beautiful. Had a great time. It was only my second cruise, but already I'm turning into a more discriminating cruise-o-phile! Had traveled previously on the Celebrity Solstice last year to NZ. This was our first trip to Alaska ... Read more

This was my second Princess Cruise to Alaska within a year's time. The first was last August on the Ruby. This year, my friend and I went on the Northbound Voyage of the Glaciers on the Island Princess. Immediately, I felt like the ship ... Read more

We have taken a number of cruises but never one to Alaska and had never been on Princess Cruise Lines. Did our research and booked it based on the ports and land excursions available and the reputation of Princess Cruises. There were highs ... Read more

This was my first cruise, and was taken as a family vacation. We were a party of seven and ages ranged from 30-60, which seemed about par for the ship. Apparently our sailing had more children than usual and the announcements during ... Read more

Unable to see anything of Anchorage as we had to board a bus by 11 a.m. to take us to the ship, which departed at 8.50 p.m.. Embarkation was handled very well. Our cabin was adequate, but the shower was very small and with a curtain that ... Read more

This was our 50th anniversary cruise. We had very bad service at dinner! The assistant waiter was missing most of the time, leaving the waiter to buss tables and wait on over 16 people at two tables by himself. The breakfast and lunch ... Read more

We was on a 12 day Land/cruise with Princess. They did an awesome job of shuffling us and our luggage around.There was a representative that picked us up at the airport and got us all organized. I would suggest to do the land portion first ... Read more

This was our first trip to the West Coast. The embarkation was very easy. They told us to arrive at 2:30 PM but it was no problem to get on board in time for lunch. We chose a window suite that does not have a balcony. We have had this ... Read more
