Review for Crown Princess to Alaska

Boy this is tough to write. Swallow my pride, my humility, and take full ownership of the fact that my wife and I talked our friends into going on this trip with us as their first cruise experience. Go ahead, say it: 1) 'You should have known better! It was the Crown Princess' first sailing in 25 months!' 2) 'This was the first Alaskan itinerary the Crown was doing for the season!' 3) ...

We chose this cruise because my wife has always wanted to go to Alaska. While everyone on the boat has been very nice and helpful , it’s not that our itenerary has been changed at least five times. There is absolutely no excuse for not having this ship in running order given the amount of time it was out of service. Excursions changed many times and even cancelled because we couldn’t make that ...

Most of the staff is very kind on a regular base. When it comes to complaints at the front desk (disputing charges for excursions we did not book and participate) staff appears to be stressed and less friendly. Food in the main restaurant was good, but spare ribs could not be cut or chewed from the bones. The navigator app did not always work when mostly needed to show room key barcode, ...

My only real complaint was the lack of any real activity for the kids. The loft was only open 1 time per day, at 10 pm. My kids were bored because all the other stuff HAL has is more geared to seniors. I love cruising HAL for this, because it tends to be more laid back, but for this cruise it was a giant drawback. As far as entertainment, Carlos was a superstar. The various gameshows and ...

We wanted to go to Alaska from San Francisco. Alaska and San Francisco were awesome. The major issue with our cruise was the Medallion App and its poor performance. First, you HAVE to use it for many functions such as viewing your Folio. Although this is an option on your TV it refers you to the app. That happens a lot. It is constantly freezing up, has to be reloaded, staff has issues with ...

Pleasant cruise but some concerns

I originally booked a class I inside. As sailing approached Emails with upgrades started appearing. Each one lowered the upgrade price and the final was $50 to a window, $149 to a verandah and $1300 to a suite. I was placed in an outside room with a floor to ceiling window on deck 4. It was mostly obstructed by a lifeboat but the natural light was nice. Food and beverage were both better than ...

Travelled to alaska on Holland America. First, this cruise line has zero entertainment during the day. With over 3 sea days, choose another ship with daily entertainment. Night time entertainment was limited. The comedian was on for half an hour. The Lincoln Center stage music happened maybe twice and lasted for half an hour. Went on the train trip in Skagway. 10 minutes into the trip, the engine ...

Got Covid - surprise surprise

Absolutely zero Covid protocols on this ship despite being investigated by the CDC for 256 positive cases in 5 weeks. Make mask wearing mandatory, no smoking in casino, enforce hand washing at buffet and don’t let guest serve themselves at buffets. Those things could have prevented this from happening. I wore my mask the whole time and still got it. Loved the medallion, HORRIBLE NON EXISTENT ...

I choose this cruise for the itinerary. We loved our suite except for the terrible bed. All of the staff on board were so happy to be back. The food was not up to Holland's standards. no cream for our coffee, very poor quality beef, The only really good meal was in Rudy's Sel de Mer and Tamarind. I do have to say that staffing is still an issue for the cruise line. This could explain some of ...

I should start off with an observation: My wife and I have only sailed with Princess. Consequently, I've no other lines to compare & contrast against. I have also noticed that as I continue cruising (15+ cruises) I seem to become more sensitive to a sailing's imperfections. That said, I support the adage, "Make the most of the moment and don't let the minuses eclipse those moments." Ruby ...
