This was one of the very first cruises my husband and I ever did. We had such great memories of it that we wanted to do it again. Unfortunately, now that we have over 15 cruises with various cruise lines under our ...

Never again

I chose this cruise specifically to photograph the inner passage. Booked the large suite in the back of the boat. Apparently this ship is too large to navigate the inner passage and instead detoured out to sea for a ...

Not to trust if you have food allergies. They are going to kill somebody one day

We chose this cruise and no other, because Princess is the only company that goes inside the Glacier Bay National Park. We traveled in two cabins. Cabin L308 for my husband and myself, and stateroom P222 for my two ...

Riding a septic tank

A chance to see Alaska. Boarded in Whittier on May 26th. All seemed ok the first night. However as the week progressed, we were subjected to a sewage smell throughout the ship. The food was mediocre at best in any ...

Over rated, pre-cruise land tour operator no showed.....

Nothing special about Princess Cruises. First time sailing with them; far below expectations. Pre-cruise land tour operator did not show up on the very first evening of our vacation. Apparently it wasn't just our ...

Alaska is great. Princess sucks. Terrible food and service.

I selected this cruise for the itinerary. I thought Princess also had a good reputation. I was told they had been doing AK cruises longer than the other lines. We could not have been more disappointed in ...

Wanted to cruise Glacier Bay so I chose this ship because it is one of the smaller ships. Having cruised numerous times with other vendors this was my first cruise with the Princess line. The quality of the food ...

This ship should be taken out of service

Princess was recommended by our travel agent. This particular ship happened to be sailing from Anchorage to Vancouver during the time period that we needed. From the day we boarded the ship, it was a disaster. Our ...

Not kid friendly and ship is literally falling apart

Princess kids program is a joke. If you are considering bringing young ones on this ship.......please rethink and book with another cruise line. There were only small hand full of kids on the ship and they combined ...

Zero Stars if it were up to me

If I could give zero stars I would. From terrible food to abhorrent customer service, Princess Cruises made what would have been a wonderful journey to Alaska an absolute nightmare. They lied on their sales ...
