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

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

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

This was our first cruise. We chose Princess cruise lines because they included Glacier Bay National Park on all their itineraries. We chose a 12 day Cruisetour which included 7 days northbound cruise followed by 5 day land tour with 1 ... Read more

Princess Cruise is rated the best for Alaska. We did a 7-day cruise with an 8-day land tour. The cruise was very good. The only negatives were that some of the wait staff at dinner weren't as well trained as they should be and one never ... Read more

Picked this cruise for the destinations rather than the ship.. but... the ship was marvelous! The ports, Ketchikan, Juneau and Skagway are terrific. Cruising Glacier Bay National Park and College Fjords was majestic. Scenery was ... Read more

My wife and I are " Elite" Princess cruisers. We've been on many Princess ships and a couple of non-Princess ships. We have not cruised for about 4 years due to other trips/vacation destinations. We are just retired (65ish); this ... Read more

This was our third Alaska cruise, but the first one that we opted for the Denali Tour afterwards. We had enjoyed the inside passage and decided to "conquer" more of the Alaskan wilderness. Embarkation was fairly smooth, but ... Read more

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 have always wanted to a Denali Cruisetour so we decided to do Alaska again. Love the convenience of getting on board so close to home and only having to fly back one way. The cruise itself was uneventful, the weather wasn't the ... Read more

This was our first cruise with Princess. I booked a cruise tour because of their experience in Alaska. I arranged for the trip as a north bound cruise from Vancouver followed by the land tour. I would not suggest this as the optimum ... Read more

This was actually a cruise and cruise tour and it was our 3rd cruise and cruise tour. The other 2 tours were exceptional and 5 starts. The only reason for 3 stars is you just cannot beat the scenery of Alaska and its beauty in May and ... Read more
