The "rusted" Crown

Review for Crown Princess to Alaska

10+ Cruises • Age 50s

Had somewhat chosen this cruise as a last minute adventure, as some much needed work was being done in our condo that made it required to find a quick and easy getaway. And we figured as we are top tier status with Princess (Elite/Platinum) we had high expectations as we had frequently travelled with Princess. But sadly we were very wrong, as the Crown Princess is in serious need of not only some ...

We were excited to go back to Alaska and visit new ports. Icy Straight Point was a great place. We loved being able to walk through the forest up to the shopping. Prince Rupert was OK - not really anything to do if you don't take an excursion. If they want to make this a more permanent port they need to put in more tourist shops. But the Fire Dept Museum and nice and I was able to get a ...

I got a lot of great info from this site before my vacation so I want to try to share my experience and help others as well. This was a twice-rescheduled family cruise (myself and my sister and our parents and spouses) that we were originally going to do in 2020. So happy we finally got to go! My parents, who have cruised before, picked the ship and the itinerary. I have to admit I thought I ...

Disappointing Alaska cruise

Just returned from the July 23 sailing for seven nights on Princess Crown out of Seattle. Absolute dismal experience I know they cannot control the weather which did not cooperate so we could not see glacier Bay and we missed a stop in Ketchikan. But the really short few hours stop in Juneau Alaska and icy street was just not acceptable because it’s hard to do any excursion. We’d like to Skagway ...

I had previously sailed on the Ruby Princess and was really impressed by the service and the overall look of the ship. But I was unpleasantly surprised when I arrived at Pier 27 on July 19,2022. What i found was a line more than three blocks long to get on the ship. The most worrisome issue was the line was in the sun for hours and was not moving at a great pace. This indicated to me poor ...

Only cruise line available which sails directly from San Francisco. Really good food on board. Really friendly staff, they really are the back bone of cruise ship.

The fo9d on cruise was so good, with high quality ...

6-10 Cruises • Age 70s

First of all never ever let the Cruise book your airline tickets it took us 30 hours to get home. Cruise embarkation was fine .Rooms were clean and very nice room attendant did a great job cleaning but she was so busy she really didn’t get much personal care and I don’t blame her I blame the Cruise for being understaffed. The food was mediocre. Varieties in the buffet minimal. Especially ...

Excellent first time cruising in Alaska

2-5 Cruises • Age 40s

Why did I choose this cruise? We choose this cruise because it appeared to have more port calls than a similar Princess cruise. Lessons learned: Look carefully at the times and places of the port calls, and ability to add a land option. With the NCL itinerary, we could not add excursions on the embarkation or debarkation days nor any days before or after the cruise. Tell people about ...

Review for Westerdam to Alaska

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

Did the typical research for our first cruise and “it” (whoever it is) that Holland America was a good line. Little did I understand that the average age of the passengers was probably 70. The cabin was one of 2 highlights of the so called cruise. It felt more like a ferry than a cruise. The other highlight was an excursion to the Hubbard Glacier (but be prepared to pay $200-1,000 per person for ...

In 2019 we booked an Alaskan cruise, that was rescheduled three times, until finally landing in July, 2022. We had an unbelievable deal for two extended balcony cabins, and it was a wonderful cruise. It was me and my husband (56 years old each), and two of my kids (28 & 24). This year, my brother and his wife (58) and their kids and significant others (all four are 28) jumped on the cruise in ...
