How can you say anything bad about sailing to Alaska. Fortunately the glaciers we visited were spectacular but the ship left much to be desired. We were on Deck 11 and right by an elevator so it should have been easy to go up to Deck 14 ... Read more

Us We are working on our bucket list and Alaska was on there. We researched over a long period and were torn between this and some of the “elite-class” cruises as we tend to like a higher end experience. We have only been on ... Read more

Generally a poor cruising experience, thank goodness Alaska is gorgeous. First, why they got 2 stars: 1) Staff was very friendly, the person taking care of our room was great. 2) One very good meal at one of the ship's premium ... Read more

I have the most amazing experience with the Grand Princess. As we arrived at the port, there were long lines but that is to be expected. We had no issues getting onboard the ship and maybe an hour after, we got on our luggage was already ... Read more

The service was horrible (some just plain rude), food was mediocre, smallest bathroom of any cruise ship I have been on (we had a balcony room), and the activities were all geared towards older folks and those who want to spend money on ... Read more

This was my first Alaska cruise and while the scenery was great, there were a few sea days that were too cold on deck to go out and enjoy the outdoors. Unfortunately about 75% of the indoor sea day activities revolved around selling stuff ... Read more

The ship overall was very nice, some what dated but clean and very large. I did not even feel like I was on a ship. I took a lot of medication just in case because I can get car sick but did not need it one time. The service was awesome, ... Read more

This was our third cruise with Princess and first to Alaska. Neither disappointed. The Star is similar in size and layout to many of the other Princess ships. It is by no means a luxury ship, but the ship is not the star here. This ... Read more

Overall it was wonderful. The Crown Grill top notch, and the staff was great. Well worth the extra dollars. Buffet is just that a buffet, nothing to write home about. Anytime dining we learned is not for us. It is lengthy and ... Read more
