We did the Southbound Denali Explorer Cruise tour. Princess did a fantastic job every step of the way. Logistics were handled explained clearly and handled smoothly. Our luggage appeared every day when promised if not earlier. Service ... 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

We chose this cruise based on the recommendation of our travel agent and she gave great advice. This was our first time cruising and we were very pleased with the entire experience. The cabin was fine. The food was very well done. It ... Read more

We considered only Princess & HA since only they have access to Glacier Bay; Princess seemed to be a bit cheaper than HA; Princess had excellent schedules & prices for airfare arrangements. We received free gratuities for ... Read more

Food - The food on Anytime Dining was far from fine dining. The Ribeye that my husband had ordered was ok & another night he had Fillet Mignon which was not tender at all. 1st night I had Cod with lentils which was dry. Another night ... Read more

One week on land, one on the ship to fulfill a dream of seeing Alaska. The land portion was excellent. Nice accommodations and got to see so much! The ship seemed much more about Botox and art auctions than Alaska. The naturalist was ... Read more

Cruise was ok but there are major opportunities for improvement. Regular rooms are average. Shower is so small you can't raise your arms to wash your hair without hitting walls and shower curtain. Room attendant was very good and ... Read more

This cruise aboard the Island Princess was a "bucket list" cruise for us. We chose the cruise date because the sailing dates coincided with flights we could arrange using our air miles. We flew into Anchorage 4 days before ... Read more

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

This was our first cruise with Princess, and our first to Alaska. We did a four day land tour before the cruise, all with Princess. We were a group of 12, some family, some friends. We were not very impressed with the land portion. ... Read more

This was our 10th Princess cruise, having also cruised with RCCL, MSC, Carnival and HAL. We have been on the Island 3 times and was a little worried with more people from the added cabins, less upper deck space and a sold out ship for ... Read more

First time on Star Princess, second cruise with Princess, probably the last. The ship is fast heading toward being in poor condition. We found buckets positioned around catching water leaks throughout the ship. Wish they had a bucket ... 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
