This was the third Princess cruise for my husband & I. We travelled to the embarkation port (Vancouver, BC) by Amtrak, staying in Seattle, WA and Vancouver prior to embarkation. The island Princess is looking a little worn in ... Read more

We couldn't have been more disappointed. The cabin was okay and that was about it. The room was a reasonable size and had bath but the bottom of the shower curtain was mouldy. We have previously sailed with Norwegian and there is no ... Read more

I've always dreamed of a cruise to Alaska. I booked the Pan Pacific in Vancouver to make this an easy trip. The ship was a pretty perfect layout for weather, lots of room on deck 7 outside but away from the weather. Balcony cabin in the ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the dates/location. We had a group of 18 and a great time was had by all. It had the friendliest captain I've ever seen! The staff was also just as friendly! It made for a great trip. Also, we have been ... Read more

My husband and I chose the Star Princess for our cruise to Alaska. After reviewing other lines we decided that the itinerary was the best on Princess. We have sailed Princess before and had a very positive experience. While the Star ... Read more

We chose to take this cruise because we were going to Fairbanks, AK to visit our nephew. It was a pleasant, relaxing way to travel. The food was good, as usual and we found a waiter, Robert, from Romania, who made our mealtimes enjoyable. ... Read more

This was our first cruise and I suggest to all to travel to Alaska on whichever cruise line fits your taste. Alaska was breath taking and surreal in August. We were wearing jackets off of the boat on the excursions. We flew into Vancouver ... Read more

Thanks to cruise critic reviewers advice, our group of four adults had an enjoyable vacation in Alaska. We did a connoisseur package, 7 night cruise north from Vancouver then did the land portion for 5 nights. Two nights at Denali ... Read more

Do yourself a favor and spend 2-3 days before cruise in Vancouver! Such a beautiful city with very friendly people. Embarkation was interesting. A long journey through the Convention Center. We were told to get there later due to ... Read more

My wife retired earlier this year, and she wanted either to go to Alaska or to go on a cruise...so we did both. We opted to leave from Vancouver so we'd have less time on the open ocean than if we'd sailed from San Francisco. The ship ... Read more

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 was one of a few that went north from Vancouver to Anchorage and we wanted a midsize ship with a balcony rooms that left on a specific date. After reading the reviews on Princess, we felt it was the right ... 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

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 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
