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

This was my second Alaskan cruisetour with Princess. This summer I brought my 10-year old nephew and we had a wonderful time. We began with a 6-night land tour. Our tour director, Greg, was great. He took care of everything (including ... Read more

As a very loyal X cruiser we chose this cruise as it was the only one where we did not have to disembark the day after our wedding anniversary and it allowed us to visit both Hubbard and Glacier Bay. X is not licensed to sail in GB. We ... Read more

We choose this because of the itinerary; we had been in Alaska 20 years ago and wanted to visit the same spots again. Our favorite line, Oceania does not go where we wanted to go, so we choose Princess. Not a good decision. Boarding was ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we like the at sea days as much as the port visit. glacier Bay was awesome, and the Park Rangers who boarded the ship were excellent. Sadly our weather was not great but we made the most of it. The Grand could ... Read more

We choose this cruise at the last minute, well only 6 weeks prior to cruising. We were on the Crown Princess because there were 2 cabins, a balcony and an interior across the hall from each other which was a requirement since we were ... Read more

My mom and I just got back from the northbound Voyage of the Glaciers cruise. We absolutely loved it! There is literally something for everyone. We departed from Vancouver and did an excursion in each of the ports: Ketchikan - ... Read more

This was my "test drive" cruise to decide if I want to cruise back2back for the next 20 years. I cruised in the distant past, but not for 15 years or so. I was looking for a clean, classy, calm ship, and the Crown fit this ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it was one of a few that went north from Vancouver to Anchorage and we wanted a midsize ship with a balcony rooms that left on a specific date. After reading the reviews on Princess, we felt it was the right ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it included Alaskan waterways and land cruise. Departure city of Vancouver was a plus, so we arrived a day early to tour and that was not enough. Disembarkation went fast and smooth because we chose a city tour ... Read more

I have always cruised on Celebrity or Royal Caribbean but on my trip to Alaska I thought Princess was the way to go. My review is on the ship only, not the itinerary portion (which was fabulous). Embarking and disembarking was ... Read more
