Mixed Experience

First Time Cruiser

Age 60s

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, ...

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. ...

My husband and I are Latinx, in our 30s and decided to do the cruise for our honeymoon. We began in Whittier and ended in Vancouver. The good: - Cruise was small compared to others which makes it more intimate - Food was really good, specially in the buffet - Staff was super friendly and helpful - Our cabin was cleaned on a regular basis - Plenty of entertainment option (some a ...

I am glad we were booked on a small ship and were able to cruise Glacier Bay, but we will never cruise with Princess again. The ship is in desperate need of a complete overhaul. Everything was old and outdated. Princess also needs to overhaul the food and entertainment onboard. I have never had such bad food on a cruise ship. Not only was the quality and execution bad, the portions were very ...

Cabin steward and service throughout ship was good. Cabin well above 70 degrees throughout even though thermostat set on cold. Glad balcony had a door which opened. Food was disappointing- buffet breakfast was a zoo fighting aggressive people for a table. Lunch and dinner selections big on sushi, Indian....stuff I don't eat. Main dining room more civilized. Food selections inconsistent ...

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 ...

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 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 ...

Alaska has been on my bucket-list. Princess tour-cruise (we did land portion first, which was great) and this ship was recommended by a family member who had done the same cruise several years prior. We booked a year prior which had a 'Sip & Sail' offering for mini-suite or above - well worth it! Very, very impressed with seamless organization of entire cruise scheduling (including land portion) ...
