The Discovery Princess is a new ship. This newness coupled with the fact that Princess is owned by Carnival and is reputed to be a step up from Carnival had us excited to cruise again. My wife and I have been on 5 cruises now and until this Princess cruise to Alaska, this was the first time it wasnt a Carnival Cruise. first the good. The ship is beautiful. always clean, all the right ...

We chose the cruise based on the itinerary entirely. We were pleasantly surprised to find that the Discovery Princess is a brand new ship, just launched this year. We really enjoyed the ship as an extra destination in addition to Alaska. The spaces are thoughtfully designed. The decor is old world elegant (gold!) but with contemporary finishes. We particularly enjoyed the balcony stateroom. It ...

New ship, beautiful as usual. 35th cruise overall, 17th on princess. ALASKA IS ALWAYS BEAUIFUL, STAFF WAS GREAT, DRINKS WERE FANTASTIC, TWO ENTERTIERS WERE THE BEST The ukranian duo (laudo) was fantastic and the martini demonstartion were great entertainment, dance and song performance were good, but , nothing special. ship appeared to be understaffed. Food in the main dining room was ...

The ship is beautiful. This was our first cruise since the Pandemic so we weren't certain what to expect but we were pleasantly surprised and found the ship to be staffed appropriately and most of the staff were well trained. We specifically booked this cruise for the port of Skagway and the train ride shore excursions but this port was changed due to rock slides which affected the dock that ...

Loved this Alaska cruise, and loved (a bit surprisingly) the Discovery Princess

We booked this cruise last minute after a cancellation by another cruise line. After booking I read reviews here and my heart kind of sunk thinking we'd booked a pretty sub par Alaskan cruise on a sub par "older style" ship. Well, I'm VERY pleased to report that was not the case for my wife and I. The Good Entertainment (Top notch!; Rock Opera + Spotlight Cafe were both fantastic!). ...

Disappointing cruise to Alaska

My sister had cruised to Alaska thru princess cruises so I decided to book thru this cruise line. It was very disappointing with how chaotic it was once we embarking on the ship. Some of the staff hardly spoke English which made communication impossible. The medallion system was not functioning at times due to bad connection. The food staff constantly asking if we had "drink beverage package" ...

This Princess Discovery – their newest, only 3 months old? Never again. It’s designed to contain everyone indoors – keeping them buying drinks etc. The acts were lame and filled every seat because there was nothing else to do. Some of the bar staff were laughing up their cuffs at the customers – in my opinion. Warm weather - everything fogged out. Ice burgs so no glacier seen. The route has ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

I've always wanted to go to Alaska so I finally decided on a cruise so I could turn the big 50 in the biggest State. We visited Ketchikan, Juneau, Sitka, and Victoria. I definitely recommend getting the shore excursions set up before you arrive because there is no telling what will be left to pick from when you get there. It was easy to get aboard and the entry / exit for each port was easy ...

Princess cruises is an amazing cruise line and good at entertaining people. The food is good, the service is top notch, the cleaning practices are healthy and safe. Room Stewards are the best in the business. The absolute ONLY reasons for the 4 star review is 1.) the internet speed is super slow on everything except youtube. 2.) The app is super fidgety. We had to have help with app 5 times ...

We chose this cruise for the itinerary. two of my friends who went with me were brand new cruisers. I have been on the Grand, Star, Coral, Pacific, Sapphire, and Emerald. This ship has the nicest layout and space. Embarkation: Very smooth- ours went a bit quicker due to elite status. However, make sure you do all required paperwork prior to cruise. The Medallion app is a little tricky with ...
