Hello, this morning we disembarked from the Ruby Princess after a one-day re-positioning from Seattle to Vancouver. Our cabin was C409, we paid about $140 each for a balcony, but we had started out booking an inside room. About a month ... Read more

I had never been on Princess before-may not again. Id rather they increased the price of the cruise a $100 and stop trying to sell me things all week! Was disappointing to say the least-not much to do on the ship unless you wanted to shop ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we wanted to cruise Alaska again and also visit family in Seattle. This was the last cruise of the year to Alaska for Ruby Princess and the price was very good. The ship itself was very nice and clean. However ... Read more

Let me start off the conversation by saying that this is about our 10th cruise and our second one with Princess. We did the Voyage of the Glaciers in 2013 (June- Island Princess) and had a great time. So we thought we would try Princess ... Read more

A good cruise; not a great cruise. Ship - This particular ship had really bad vibrations. I was in the Navy so I know the difference between motion due to the sea and the unusual. This was unusual. It was so bad we couldn't sit at the ... Read more

Background My spouse booked this cruise in celebration of our 45th anniversary. We have cruised with Princess before and our last time was in 2011 on the Diamond Princess, also to Alaska. This was my 4th and my spouse’s 3rd cruise ... Read more

I always do a lot of research before any vacation. I found that Princess (Crown) goes through Glacier Bay - which many do not. It was our first cruise, and I had read many not-so-positive reviews about the wear and tear of the Crown, the ... Read more

We are long time Princess cruisers, with Platinum Captain's Circle status. This is going to sound like a negative review, and I don't mean for it to. If I were brand new to cruising, I would have had only glowing things to say about our ... Read more

Alaska was the destination of choice...so cruising seemed the best way to do it. We live near the port and found arrangements to be very easy. I had no idea we were going to love rising the way we do now. The cabin was much roomier ... Read more

We very much enjoyed our trip to Alaska on the Ruby Princess. It really did not feel like there were so many people, except when we had a limited time in port and then EVERYONE wanted to get off at the same time. Plenty of things to do, ... Read more

People who say the food is good on this ship have very low standards! I went on this cruise expecting some really special dining and was SO disappointed. The coffee is colored water. I bought a coffee card due to this. Even then, I had to ... Read more

This was our first time on the Crown Princess. Our destination was Alaska - the Inside Passage. We flew into Seattle on embarkation day and utilized the transfer from the airport to the ship. It was somewhat chaotic with all the buses ... Read more

I choose this particular cruise line based on reviews. My destination was to Alaska, regardless of which boat to take. However, after having sailed on Norwegian and Carnival, I opted to go with Princess based on the grander scale everyone ... Read more

Why did we take this cruise? 1. Window cabin was only about $40 more than the cheapest interior. 2. Wanted to see the glaciers, 3. Needed to burn some leave, and 4. Crown was a decent ship the last time we sailed on her. Boarding and ... Read more

We chose Princess after reading good reviews, and because they are known for their Alaska cruises. Unfortunately we won't be travelling with Princess again. We were very disappointed in the level of service. We have travelled with ... Read more

We've been on seven cruises, including this cruise - five Carnival and one Celebrity. I expected much more from Princess - they're supposed to be top of the line. The food selection was poor. If you don't like fish, you options are ... Read more

Ship and towns (Ketchikan, Juneau and Skagway) are a giant vacuum cleaner for your last cent. Consider the cruise either as transport to additional pay-for tours, or a temporary hold on mundane concerns. There is little to see from the ... Read more

We went with a group from our local senior center. We had not sailed with Princess before and looked forward to the experience. We were impressed with how fast the boarding procedure went - fast and no long lines! The service on the ship ... Read more

Buffet food was almost uneatable. Breakfast was by fare the worst. Food in main dinning was not much better. In fact the soups were cold, bread was hard and general taste of the main course just not what you would expect.. The coffee was ... Read more

We thoroughly enjoyed our cruise - a little pricey but this was Alaska. Stayed in a mini suite allowing us more room with a full size tub. Our Steward [Ricky] was excellent and attentive. The food in the main dining room was excellent ... Read more
