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

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

This was our 3rd cruise as a couple, and our second cruise as a family with 2 children (aged 7 and 5). Our two previous cruises were with Royal Caribbean to Alaska and the Baltics respectively. We chose Norway and the Fjords for 3 main ... Read more

The Royal Princess is a great ship. The cinema under the stars was a marvellous moment to spend with the family every evening. All the staff was helpful, efficient, answered all our questions and made us feel at home. All the ... Read more

Our main point in the cruise was to see more of Japan than just Tokyo. There were some really good parts of the cruise--the festival at Amori was impressive. There were also great events that Princess never bothered to put in the Patter ... Read more

This cruise was titled "The Festivals of Japan" and it only happens once per year. If you have a chance to sail on this ship at the appropriate festival time, grab it!!! Four of the ports of call visit coastal communities during ... Read more

Just back today, August 7 from inside passage, Seattle, Ketchikan, Tracy Arm, Juneau, Skagway. Embarkation and surprisingly Disembarkation were both very smooth. The "cruise" in and of itself was great. Staff was 99% ... Read more

This was our third cruise and first on Princess. We had a good vacation, but felt the cruise portion of it was a bit lacking. I was very surprised about the lack of amenities for a ship this size. Personally, I think they will be ... Read more

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

Cabin A437. Far too small for two adults and one child; 3rd bed is lowered by steward each evening and is immediately over the main bed. It is unsettling for the sleepers who may as well be in a small bunk bed! Balcony was in need of ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary with our entire family (19 of us) on 7/27/16 & we wanted to be on the ship on that day. We also chose it as we felt there would be more for the kids to do. ... Read more
