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

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

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

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

The head waiter and our dinner staff was fantastic, making sure that my dietary needs were meet. The entertainment was also fantastic. Other than that, the cruise was not the best. According to what I have read on Cruise ... 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

“Land Ho!” came the cry from the veranda of our mini suite on Dolphin deck on board the Princess Star. Normally you would think that would be your words after a 5 day ocean crossing Vancouver BC to Hilo, Hawaii. You'd be ... Read more

Our 6th cruise-- 1st time w/ Princess. I always read these reviews and wonder (and chuckle) about how anyone could somehow complain about ANYTHING while cruising. Now I know. OK- here we go The Star, while we liked the layout ... Read more

Chose this cruise because the timing was perfect and it involved no flights. I was impressed with the way the crew responded to a Noro outbreak, and the control achieved. I was not impressed with all of the line ups, for everything. ... Read more

The Star Princess is a wonderful ship. We love Skywalkers and the views from the 18th deck! We enjoyed a traditional dining time, the Crown Grill (fabulous steaks) and Sabatini's, too. The food quality, presentation and service ... Read more

After many cruises on many different lines, I feel that I am able to offer a pretty good opinion of our cruise with Princess. We knew that this was a "trial" - cruising a little early in the year for Hawaii (not to mention ... Read more

I will start my review with this: A cruise was not my first choice. I was convinced by my husband whose dream it was to take a trans-ocean cruise. He talked me into this 15 day cruise from Vancouver to Hawaii by getting me to think ... Read more
