I wanted to get my National Parks Passport stamped at Denali NP and Glacier Bay NP. This land/cruise tour offered those opportunities. We were escorted from the time our plane landed in Fairbanks until we arrived at Vancouver Airport a week later. All excursions were extremely well organized and presented. We loved everything we experienced on shore. Aboard the ship, we found it difficult ...

My in-laws raved about their north-bound cruise that they took 13+ years ago, having unlimited lobster tail and the adventures that they had. So our group of 7 included 1 teenager, 4 adults in their 50's and my in-laws (between 80-90). Four of us did the land tour three days prior, flew out to Fairbanks, traversed our way south visiting Denali to meet up with three others in our party at ...

An Alaskan cruise was definitely a "bucket list" item for us. We had heard Princess was the best line for Alaska. Our experience on the ship, however, was mixed. Of course the scenery and ports did not disappoint (although towns were definitely geared to tourists). However, the customer service, food and activities on the ship were a mixed bag. My sense was about 40-50% of the staff were polite, ...

My husband and I traveled with another couple. We are all in our 60's. We have cruised many times, mostly with Celebrity and Royal Caribbean although with have been on Norwegian, Carnival and this was our 3rd cruise with Princess. We took the land tour first. We arrived in Anchorage around 8:30pm a day early, since we wanted to spend a day there and get acclimated to the time change. (We're ...

We chose this trip because we’ve never been to Alaska and wanted to see a lot. We did the right thing by doing the 5 day land tour first. We started in Fairbanks and stayed at the Princess River lodge 2 nights. The room was adequate and the beds comfortable. Really enjoyed the River cruise and gold dredge tour but the lunch provided wasn’t good. Perfect weather. On to Denali where we went on the ...

My travel companions and I could accommodate this date. In addition, others we know recommended the timing. We had perfect clear weather the entire trip. Lots of wildlife sightings and breathtaking glacier calving are unforgettable memories I will carry forever. Our cruise director was very funny and engaging. The shows I saw were fun and entertaining, and the food was excellent. Most of the ...

We wanted to see Alaska and the glaciers. Getting on and off the ship was very easy and mostly smooth. The ship was very clean and the mini-suite with balcony was everything you could ask for. We were very disappointed with the food. The service in the dining rooms was very good but the food was poor, with the exception of the two specialty dining rooms. We spent a goodly amount of ...

We chose an Alaskan Land & Cruise Package. We did the land portion first, which was good because that was more strenuous. We boarded the ship in Anchorage & sailed to Vancouver. The first 2 days were spent on the ship as we viewed the glaciers. The next 3 days we were in 3 ports (Skagway, Juneau & Ketchikan). Last full day was at sea. The ship was well-maintained & appointed. Our balcony cabin was ...

It was a last-minute decision to come on this cruise - we booked two weeks before departure (so GREAT rate!! Honestly we paid $100 a day each for this cruise - where else can you get housing AND three meals a day for that? not even at home based on where we live, ha ha ha). I therefore didn't do much research at all other than looking at dates and prices - this was the best value so I went with ...

I chose this cruise because I was invited to go with a group of friends who already booked. In addition I wanted to do the land portion as I had previously done a “cruise only” on Regents if the Sea. The ship was nice, but I felt it could have had a refresh. The two main dining rooms were very nice and the food was very good. The buffet was also good. We purchased the beverage package ...
