The itinerary and stops were great but the ship seems to be a little tired overall and maybe not the best value for the buck. So my vacation started with three days in Anchorage on my own.At this time the ...

Beautiful ship; Medallion needs lots of work

The ship is beautiful and well kept. The staff was mostly friendly but many didn’t seem to know the right answers - new crew? Not well trained? The drinks at Good Spirits were outstanding. The very handsome ...

Perfect Size Ship

We chose the Golden Princess for our Alaska Land/Cruise tour because it was small enough to traverse the glaciers yet large enough to include the Piazza for smaller events, and Skywalkers for daytime relaxation and ...
