I was on the Star Princess's last Alaska Cruise in September with my children and son-in-laws. I came down with the flu the first night out and was sick the entire cruise. Saw nothing to speak of and stayed in my interior cabin. ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the land tour that we could take in conjunction with it. The land tour was very good: well run, nice facilities. We had been on a Princess cruise about 30 years ago and were disappointed. We thought we ... Read more

I had a wonderful two week vacation in Alaska. Reading some of the reviews, I did feel some trepidation, but it was unfounded. I think some people aren’t happy if they don’t have something to complain about. It's a ... Read more

Disclaimer up front - this was not just a cruise but a cruisetour. We had 12 days (5 land, 7 sea) with Princess, with the land portion first. We chose to sail with Princess solely because they had such an extensive network of land lodges, ... Read more
