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 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 ...

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 ...

We are also not used to paying gratuities, as is standard on a cruise, as we like to tip the people that gave us good service. Reading the small print of all the paperwork that Princess send out, when we got on the ship at Anchorage and before we left, we went to the Customer Service desk and opted out of the 'gratuities' option. You cannot do this after sailing. We didn't bring anything for ...

We wanted a trip that left and returned to either Seattle or Vancouver. This itinerary fit the bill and had good scenic glacier cruising. We had a mini suite aft, no balcony but extra cabin space with a large window and a viewing deck right outside our door. Cabin c202. Had a full bath with tub and was very spacious. Port stops were mostly good, although there isn’t much in Whittier. We booked all ...

This is our second trip to Alaska. This time we did the Connoiseur (?) land & sea. We liked the ship overall, but did find the shower very small, which sounds like a common issue for this ship. But it was manageable. We had an inside cabin with a window, and it was big enough for the time spent in it. The bed was very comfy, and our steward was friendly and very efficient. We ate mainly ...
