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

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

While the non-specialty coffee is below par our party of 4 found the food to be excellent. As in most cruise ships the buffet area is noisy, hetic and crowded the Provence dining room for breakfast, lunch and diner was excellent. Every ... 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

Our experience on the Coral Princess was top notch from embarkation to debarkation. Embarkation was fast, organized, and smooth. Cabins were ready immediately unlike our previous experiences on Norwegian. The ship was up to date, ... Read more

This was my second Princess Cruise to Alaska within a year's time. The first was last August on the Ruby. This year, my friend and I went on the Northbound Voyage of the Glaciers on the Island Princess. Immediately, I felt like the ship ... Read more

We have taken a number of cruises but never one to Alaska and had never been on Princess Cruise Lines. Did our research and booked it based on the ports and land excursions available and the reputation of Princess Cruises. There were highs ... Read more

We left Atlanta airport on July 6, 2016 for a cruise tour vacation on the Island Princess. We flew in to Vancouver, where we boarded our ship. Everything from the airport to getting on the ship went pretty smoothly. We had an early ... Read more

Princess Cruises was an excellent choice for our Alaskan vacation! We stayed on the cruise ship for 7 nights and then had 6 nights in Princess Lodges in Mt. McKinley, Denali and Fairbanks. We had a balcony which we loved and especially on ... Read more

We had glorious weather on our Alaskan cruise with temps between 18 and 22 celsius (68 - 72 Fahrenheit). so that makes a big difference in how one enjoys any travel experience. Besides the effect of the weather, overall, our trip was ... Read more

This was our first cruse, and we decided on Princess at the recommendation of a friend, and the available dates we wanted to travel. We were skeptical first time cruisers. We thought we would be bored, that there would't really be much ... Read more

Alaska is a beautiful, must see destination. Seeing it from a cruise ship is not the most ideal, but it is convenient and fun. The first day and a half is spent at sea with nothing to really see. Ketchikan is not the best port and we ... Read more

Princess cruises has the worst customer service of any business I have experienced in the travel industry. We had a group of 20 including 10 kids and they were awful at managing the group at the kids. Once they have your money with the ... Read more

This was our first cruise and we had looked on cruise critic to see what our experience might be like. This seems like the kind of thing that is on everyone's bucket list and talking with other passenger's confirmed this. Overall, we are ... Read more

We planned a family trip for 10 people and 4 more family members joined us. We selected the Alaska destination because most of us had never been to Alaska and the trip was planned for June. We were a diverse group ranging in age from ... Read more

Alaska was the draw, it is a great destination. Did the land portion after the cruise and enjoyed it as well. Princess is changing and not for the better. This is our third Princess cruise and next time I think we will try another company. ... Read more

The Voyage of The Glaciers cruise itself was a great experience, and I heartily recommend it! Our only dissatisfaction with the cruise had to do with the before embarkation and after embarkation experiences. We chose to spend the night ... 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
