We were two families with three kids total, ages 15, 14 and 9. Having read some of the recent negative reviews, we kept our expectations low but they were all greatly exceeded. From the moment we stepped on the ship, the staff members were friendly and helpful. Because it’s such a small ship, many of them got to know us personally and addressed us by name. We found the ship in great condition ...

My family and I wanted to experience Alaska and Vancouver. We did the 3 day land excursion and seven day cruise on the Coral Princess. Words cannot describe the overall amazing experience we had. It was surreal from the land, the ship, entertainment and dining perspective. The views Princess afforded us on land at each lodge and during transportation throughout Denali National Park was unsurpassed ...

We wanted to take our family on an Alaskan cruise to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. My wife and I had taken this exact same itinerary 10 years ago and we knew from experience our family would enjoy it. Eleven of us did the land tour from Anchorage to Denali before the cruise, and then we were joined by 5 more at the ship for the cruise. We had a total of 16, 8 adults and 8 children. ...

We just returned from a 7-day cruise in Alaska on the Coral Princess. This was my and my husband’s 1st cruise. Some in our group have cruised multiple times. There were 12 in our group of family and friends. Ages ranged from 31-70. (6 couples) Those of us who were first time cruisers were worried about sea sickness; we worried needlessly! This cruise was as smooth as silk. Even our seasoned ...

We just returned from a wonderful cruise to Alaska. We did the land tour first followed by a cruise. Definitely my preferred order. My group loved the size of the Coral Princess. It could get into the bays and near the Glaciers the larger ships can't get near. The staff was wonderful, so friendly and helpful. Try the margaritas in the Crooners Lounge, they are the BEST! The beds are ...

Overall, the Alaska experience was excellent. Our land portion started in Anchorage, followed by two one nights at Princess rustic lodges. The highlight of this portion was the 5 hour Denali tour. After a pleasant and comfortable domed train to Whittier, we boarded Coral for the one week southbound cruise. On our second sea day, while enjoying the glacier experience, the aft located ...

Highly recommend the Alaska Cruise Tour adventure. (We recommend doing the tour first, then the cruise. Princess is so organized and takes such good care of you.) We decided to explore a few other cities prior to joining our Cruise Tour. We started in Anchorage, rented a car, and explored the city and surrounding areas (Old Town on 4th street, a quilt shop, and THE BRIDGE for dinner and to ...

We absolutely recommend this cruise! This cruise was on our bucket list and now we want to repeat it! The scenery was breathtaking! Glaciers, mountain ranges, whales... Alaska is a wilderness to be preserved and enjoyed for generations! It is a vast wonderland everyone should experience. The ship and its crew exceeded our expectations. We were pampered and treated with respect by ...

We chose Princess Cruise to Alaska because of their reputation and presence in that area. We found our mini suite to be clean and comfortable with ample room for the two of us. The Bordeaux dining room was very pleasant, the service first rate and the food was excellent making dinner each evening a real treat. There was more than enough to do on board, we particularly enjoyed the evening ...

We cruised the inside passage of Alaska for a week. No complaints at all. Our cabin attendant Maria was very pleasant as were all of the waiters and other staff. Our room was refreshed a couple times a day. Plenty of storage space which is very handy. A large picture window so we had a good view. We were on the 5th floor. The shower is very tiny but we made do with it. You get used to it. Also ...
