Great ports and the glaciers were outstanding

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 ...

We were asked to join a group of family that were planning this trip with their friends. We traveled as a party of 16 - and had a blast!! We booked a land and sea package and added 2.5 additional days in Vancouver, BC. I wish we would have added more time in Vancouver. It is a wonderful city - with so much to offer if you like to hike, bike, eat and drink! We booked an excursion in every ...

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 ...

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, ...

Alaska is a Must

Alaska has been on our list for a while, so we leapt at this great deal. We knew that Glacier Bay was a definite must, which drew us to this itinerary. The Royal Princess is a Medallion Class ship, which made embarkation and onboard purchases seamless. Other passengers who did not complete the Medallion Registration to become "ship ready" prior to embarkation likely did not have the same ...

We took this cruise to see the sites and animals. We had done a similar cruise last year on Star Princess. Our cabin was ok. E227. the balconies on Princess are smaller than almost every ship and cruise line we have ever been on. We were located over the theatre which was great at night but loud in the day when the show was being rehearsed. We had anytime dining. We try to ask for the ...

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 ...

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 blonde guy who taught how to make the cocktails was great. We were initially assigned to D207 a deluxe balcony, but the room had a terrible odor either dirty feet or vomit. We ...

We took a cruise on the Royal Princess that stopped at Skagway, Juneau and Ketchikan. We did a pre-cruise tour so the embarkment process was very smooth. Majoirty of check-in was done prior to our arrival at the cruise port.The interior room was your average cruise room. We did anytime dining and it was very disapointing compared to other cruises I have been on. The food options were limited and ...

We did this cruise for the itinerary, overall the cruise ship was good. Food was pretty good, boat was big enough not to feel too crowded, decor was nice and fairly new, entertainment (except for the very funny comedian) was ok, enrichment was also ok (some presenters seemed very politically motivated)... just the facts would have been better. Beach Club for teens was excellent. Embarkation and ...
