I chose this cruise to explore Alaska. The ship itself was great but the embarkation was absolutely terrible. Huge lines in customs and even that we had booked a penthouse suite, we were all in a very long line. The Cabin was very ... Read more

We are elite Captain's Circle passengers. Had a problem with the spa on Royal Princess and went to RCCL and Celebrity for a few cruises. Thought Princess would do a good job on Alaska. Stayed at the Hyatt Regency in Vancouver for 1 night ... Read more

I have been on approx. 15 cruises before and this was my first Princess cruise. I was looking forward to it since I hadn't done one before. To get right to the punch line, my wife and I had a great time. This was our second trip to ... Read more

This was our second Princess cruise and it met our expectations. The ship was great and our minisuite suited us perfectly. Would point out to be careful if you desire privacy as the balconies are often open rather than covered but this ... Read more

Cruise was part of an Evergreen Canada and Alaska tour. First time on Princess line and was very impressed. Embarkation in Vancouver was a bit long and drawn out with US immigration but no problems,just a long wait. We had a balcony ... Read more

So...my husband hadn't taken a vacation in six years and had never been on a cruise, so it was important that this cruise was exceptional. We flew into Seattle, spent a day there exploring (Pike's Place and EMP museum), had a seafood feast ... Read more

Quick one day repositioning cruise to Seattle from Vancouver on the May long weekend for Canadians. Embarkation took an hour although I heard it took later arrivals a few hours, the key is to know what kind of traffic the port will be ... Read more

We really wanted to do the Alaska Inside Passage Cruise. We booked Princess as they seem to fit our needs the best. We booked a mini-suite, as we preferred a certain side. If you are considering an Alaska cruise, a balcony is a must, as ... Read more

This was our 7th Princess Cruise and first time to Alaska. Second time on the Crown. We flew into Vancouver the same day and had ordered the Princess transfers to the ship. This was convenient, because they take your luggage to the ... Read more

The cruise to Alaska was outstanding....College Fiord was simply breathtaking. We were fortunate to have sunshine and warmer temperatures (50-65 degrees F for the most part). The ship itself was fine. The cruise was sold out but it did ... Read more

This is a review of a combined cruise and land tour of Alaska. Overall, the cruise was very nice. We chose a suite level accommodation and would recommend it highly. The suite was beautiful, large deck, nice beds, spotlessly clean, ... Read more

MY 60th Birthday treat. My bucket list was to do an Alaska Cruise and we had been recommended by friends to do this with Princess Cruises. The bar service was apalling, the most part the entertainment was poor. We count not find activities ... Read more

We are one of the crazy ones who keep doing these one days. We arrived at the port "Canada Place" and were through security, immigration and ticketing and on the ship before noon. We were traveling with our adult son, daughter ... Read more

This was my second Princess cruise, and my first Alaska itinerary. While the itinerary was excellent, as was the food and staff, that is where the positives end. I was tremendously disappointed with Princess, and will not cruise them ... Read more

The destination (Alaska) was fantastic. The stunning scenery was enhanced by near perfect weather for the entire cruise. The ship (Crown Princess), was clean and we saw no evidence of it being in anything other than good order throughout ... Read more

This review will be long, and I won't be covering the ports of call as I think there is more pertinent information readers need to know, The 'pros' for this ship is the dining room food was quite good. The service was hit and miss, but ... Read more

We have been on 12 cruises before this, half of them on Princess, but we had never been on a cruise with so many sea days before (10) and were a little worried we'd get bored. We were never bored, but we were relaxed and enriched. We ... Read more

We wanted a cruise both to and from Vancouver, so in spite of a previously forgettable experience on the Star, we decided to give it another chance. Embarkation was about normal except for me being demoted from Platinum to being a ... Read more

My husband and I booked a Vista Suite (C751) facing the aft. We had moments of enjoyment on the ship, but I will never cruise with Princess again and would advise others to do the same. About 3 days prior to embarkation, we pre-paid for ... Read more
