My DH and I chose the Star Princess because of the timing of the cruise. This was our first cruise and we wanted a very special one. We were going to renew our vows while in Alaska and splurged all the way, The Star Pro: The Star is ... Read more

We did the pre tour of Alaska first and joined the ship in Whittier. Princess were well organised on the tour and handled our luggage well. The embarkation process was smooth and quick. Luggage waiting on board and we went straight ... Read more

We chose to go on the Coral Princess as the ports were what we wanted and the prices better than the other ships leaving the same time. This was our first Princess cruise and with the exception of another (Ruby Princess that followed) ... Read more

We have always wanted to see Alaska, especially the glaciers, so this seemed the perfect opportunity. Our embarkation went smoothie and we found our stateroom easily and we were thrilled with what we found. Unpacking was easy and there ... Read more

Sixth cruise with Princess. Did the Southbound Voyage of the Glaciers from Whittier to Vancouver. Top two cruises with Princess. Coral Princess could use a face lift but overall a nice ship with the usual nice shopping areas and ... Read more

I have cruised 4 times with Princess. Twice on the Grand, once on the Dawn and now the Coral. Although I've never been unhappy with any of the experiences aboard a Princess ship I must say the Coral experience was most certainly the best. ... Read more

Our travel agent told us Princess did Alaska the best, so we chose a 3 day land tour and 7 day cruise. We had no problem boarding the ship; check-in was done while we were on the rail car from Denali. We had our cruise cards in hand as ... Read more

Great cruise, my third on this line, and first on this ship. Princess does a great job on the Voyage of the Glaciers itinerary. Dining was excellent. We had reserved dining at the early seating and really enjoyed meeting our ... Read more

As a very loyal X cruiser we chose this cruise as it was the only one where we did not have to disembark the day after our wedding anniversary and it allowed us to visit both Hubbard and Glacier Bay. X is not licensed to sail in GB. We ... Read more

We chose the Coral Princess southbound as we wanted to be in Banff on a certain date. Booking was easy and our travel agent told them we were celebrating our silver anniversary and special birthdays. Having read the previous reviews we ... Read more

We enjoyed a cruisetour to Anchorage, Denali, and the inside passage on the Coral Princess in 2013. This time, we chose a cruisetour to Fairbanks, Denali, and the inside passage on the Island Princess. We enjoyed the tour. Princess does ... Read more

This trip was on our bucket list. My husband had just finished treatment from prostate cancer and we were celebrating his cancer free status. The timing was right and we wanted to do the land portion before the cruise. We has a great time ... Read more

What a great cruise. We did the land portion of the cruise/tour first and we are glad we did. Starting with 2 days in Fairbanks, followed by 2 days at the Denali Lodge and then on to the ship, was much better than doing it the other way. ... Read more

This is long, but I tried to subtitle each section to be helpful. This was our third Alaskan cruise in 5 years. We absolutely love the peacefulness and beauty of the mountains and forests that surround every passage of this cruise. We ... Read more

This was our third time on a Princess Cruise ship and our 21st cruise so far. The Coral Princess was a bit disappointing because of its “tired” look and feel in about 60% of the ship. The only reason we choose Princess for ... Read more

This was our 21st cruise and our 3rd on Princess. I wish you could give 1/2 stars because I would have rated the cruise 3.5 but it did not deserve 4 stars. Remember that average or average plus is not the same as bad. Pros: The public ... Read more

Greatly enjoyed this cruise, which was admittedly aided by great weather (generally sunny with temperatures in the mid-60's to 70's). The cabin and cabin service were both excellent, and the views of the Alaska coastline from the balcony ... Read more
