Sapphire Princess Cruise Review by TNPA
- Sail Date: July 2012
- Destination: Alaska
Skagway we rented a car for a drive up to Canada which went really well. There are limited amount of cars available and would plan ahead if this is for you. Juneau we did whale watching with a private company on a small boat, there were five of us, which was the high-lite of the trip. Self guided tour in Ketchikan which was also easy as they have a free bus that loops around the tourist area. Disembarkation was easy in Vancouver as we carried our luggage off for a transfer to the rental car agency and drive down to Seattle.
A few pointers, rental car rates in Anchorage are cheaper downtown versus airport due to taxes. Our first time with Princess and missed the 24 hour ice cream that we had on Carnival. Scenic trip on The Alaskan Railroad down to Seward was great for viewing wildlife and snow covered mountains. Overall "Great" time as we had very little rain and can't wait to go back.
