Choose Princess as recommendation from our travel agent. Boarding and exiting ship was well organized. The ship is large and while they give you a map it took several days to get around comfortably. We had a mini suite and it was very ... Read more

Just did an Alaskan cruise with Princess. The itinerary was great and Princess does pretty well entertaining during days at sea. Their technology is excellent - for example, their "Voice of the Ocean" competition featured real ... Read more

Our friends who had never cruised before selected this cruise line and ship because their bank card gave them additional shipboard credits for using. Very disappointed for my friends who had never been on one and picked out the cruise and ... Read more

My wife and I planned for an Alaskan cruise back in 2015. We selected Princess in that we both have sailed with Princess in the past and have appreciated the level of service that they provided. This cruise was one that showed me that ... Read more

Northbound Voyage of the Glaciers cruise then 2 days Denali, 2 days Mckinley, and back to Anchorage. Uneventful boarding process. We walked on board just a few minutes after noon and were pleasantly surprised to find that the cabins were ... Read more

We sailed on the Island Princess 6/22-29 out of Vancouver and we were very happy with our trip. I've read all of the reviews, and I was a little nervous, but some people complain about everything! First of all the staff is fabulous! ... Read more

This was our first cruise. We chose Princess cruise lines because they included Glacier Bay National Park on all their itineraries. We chose a 12 day Cruisetour which included 7 days northbound cruise followed by 5 day land tour with 1 ... Read more

Princess Cruise is rated the best for Alaska. We did a 7-day cruise with an 8-day land tour. The cruise was very good. The only negatives were that some of the wait staff at dinner weren't as well trained as they should be and one never ... Read more

Picked this cruise for the destinations rather than the ship.. but... the ship was marvelous! The ports, Ketchikan, Juneau and Skagway are terrific. Cruising Glacier Bay National Park and College Fjords was majestic. Scenery was ... Read more

My wife and I are " Elite" Princess cruisers. We've been on many Princess ships and a couple of non-Princess ships. We have not cruised for about 4 years due to other trips/vacation destinations. We are just retired (65ish); this ... Read more

This was not our first cruise to Alaska, nor will it be our last. This was our first time sailing with princess. We went with the traditional dining and we loved our waiters, they had our drinks on the table waiting for us and knew what we ... Read more

We sailed as a family of 9 to Alaska. We had a one year old grandchild, our 5 kids (mid 20's to 30), my husband and I (50's), plus my elderly mother (80). I was worried before we left that our wide range of interests and ages would leave ... Read more

My husband & I traveled with 10 other family members. This was my 3rd time with Princess but my 19th cruise. Yes I am very blessed :-) We were in balcony cabin A501 on Deck 12. The cabin itself was very roomy with plenty of storage. ... Read more

Beautiful cruise ship. Cabin R503 was very roomy and very well kept on a daily basis. The entertainment was good but the number of shows was limited. Excursions were fun and well organized. The food was below par. The Horizon buffet ... Read more

Getting on the ship - We flew into Seattle early Saturday and took Princess shuttle to port. Shuttle was easy to find, lots of Princess employees to take bags and give directions. Waited about 1 hour at port before we were able to board, ... Read more

Greatly enjoyed this cruise, which was admittedly aided by great weather (generally sunny with temperatures in the mid-60's to 70's). The cabin and cabin service were both excellent, and the views of the Alaska coastline from the balcony ... Read more

Our first time cruising. We were on Deck 11, Baja, and the room was great with the balcony. Our steward was very accommodating and helpful. Always called us by our last name respectfully. Our only glitch was at the Victoria, BC, ... Read more

We considered only Princess & HA since only they have access to Glacier Bay; Princess seemed to be a bit cheaper than HA; Princess had excellent schedules & prices for airfare arrangements. We received free gratuities for ... Read more

Our travel agent told us Princess was the best cruise line for a trip to Alaska. The ship was nice, but there were a few problems that will likely cause us to go with a different cruise line next time. Our first cruise to the Caribbean ... Read more

Food - The food on Anytime Dining was far from fine dining. The Ribeye that my husband had ordered was ok & another night he had Fillet Mignon which was not tender at all. 1st night I had Cod with lentils which was dry. Another night ... Read more

Alaska was always on the bucket list, but travelling from the UK we wanted to make the flights worthwhile so chose to leave from San Francisco rather then Vancouver or Seattle. We didn't have time to explore San Fransico before sailing but ... Read more

Sailed on Crown Princess. The ship was okay. It has seen better days. There was rust where the metal meets the wood and in many spots. Our cabin was a mini-suite. The toilet kept braking didn't flush at least once a day had to call to ... Read more

Our family group of 16 just got off the Grand Princess after ten wonderful days in Alaska and Victoria. This was my second time to Alaska and it was just as fun as the first. This time we went to the newer port, Icy Strait Point, and ... Read more

This was our third Alaska cruise, but the first one that we opted for the Denali Tour afterwards. We had enjoyed the inside passage and decided to "conquer" more of the Alaskan wilderness. Embarkation was fairly smooth, but ... Read more
