This is a trip we would recommend to anyone. This was a 10 day with 3 day land beginning on 6/25 in Anchorage and ending in Vancouver. We booked through Costco which is always hassle free. The one thing we didn't realize is that virtually ... Read more

I liked the idea of a one way cruise, rather than a round-trip journey. Very smooth embarkation process. The scenery couldn't have been more stunning, and we were favored with good weather 6 out of 7 days; I've been told that's a rare ... Read more

The cabin was fine and the beds were comfortable. The closet was large but it did not have enough hangers. Glad I took foldable plastic ones. They came in really handy. We had ordered kosher meals but they were not served with plastic ... Read more

Alaska is a spectacular place. By land, sea or air, it is unbelievable. This review does not reflect Alaska whatsoever. This review is strictly about the Island Princess ship I went to Alaska the year before on Royal Caribbean. What a ... Read more

We have been on many cruises with 10 different lines, with about half on Princess (30+). I'll admit this review is biased. Having plenty of advance warning about the "wonderful" changes Princess had done to the Island Princess, ... Read more

This was our fourth cruise overall and the second with Princess. The full Canal Transit was our main reason for going, which left few options in our choice of ship. Complaints have been made here about the Island Princess, but on the whole ... Read more
