Life time cruise (Alaska)

Sail Date: June 2014
Destination: Alaska
Embarkation: Skagway
My husband gave me the surprise of my life, by booking an Alaska cruise with Princess Cruises on the Crown Princess. We had a beautiful room with a balcony view. Location of our room was great. No noise and was close to everything. I was amazed with the extraordinary beauty of this ship. Every detail from the vast variety of five star dinning to the selection of food was amazing. The service provided by the entire staff was exemplary in detail providing impeccable service that could please a King and or Queen. This experience opened up a wide selection of different types of award winning cuisine that I was so happy to have been able to experience such a vast selection of international foods of all types. The awesome desserts and their presentation was exquisite in every detail and so delicious.It was also very nice to find sugar free desserts for those of us having to be careful of caloric intake. Experiencing the breath taking views of this Alaska Cruise left me in awe, viewing the More coast line and the majestic glacier mountains.The lively entertainment provided on board in between ports provided a wonderful experience. I so much enjoyed the live music of the violins and piano music. But you did"t stop there. Offering a nice selection of boutiques to shop at or buy gifts was enjoyable. The art gallery which I attended I found to have breathtaking and scenic artwork to view.The option to bid on or buy beautiful artwork was a lovely touch. The games and offering the treasure hunt stimulated the excitement to discover all the venues available on board for our entertainment.

Could of you have offered more of a selection? I don't know. Finding the time to attend all the different types of entertainment was my challenge. In my opinion there was so much to see and do. If we ever have another opportunity to do another cruise, I really want to pay more attention to the schedule and the times of the events. In my opinion you are so past a seven more like a ten to me. But you say that there is always room for improvement. I really don't know what could have been better? Our experience on the Crown Princess was so beyond my expectations. My husband who planned this trip, gave the both of us a trip of a life time which we, (I) will never forget.

Thank you so much for your passion and dedication in excellence in every aspect having made this a very memorable life time (and never forgotten) experience. One last thought: while the Disembarkation was easy to follow the instructions in reality my husband and I really did not want (our cruise) to end. Leaving our room and leaving the ship was the hardest thing we had to do. We waited a year to plan this but in reality a (lifetime) to do this cruise. It seemed forever to wait for the cruise to happen. Now it has come and gone--but it was the best of the best Ever, while it lasted! I hope we will do this again because it was so much fun and relaxing thanks to all of you at the Princess Cruises on the Crown Princess. Thank you for such an outstanding job. P.S your rankings here only went up to a 5.5 I would have given you all 7's+++++. Less

Cabin review: R617

I was so impressed with our Riviera Cabin (R617). I believe my husband choose the right side because you saw more, in the view. I was so tickled pink to have a balcony. It was lovely and it was very spacious for the two of us. I liked the fact that there was two pillows (one soft and one firm) on each bed. The bed or mattress was comfortable not overly soft nor overly firm. The service was excellent provided by (C............) the gentleman who took care and provided the maintenance of our room during (June 7 through 14th, 2014) I was so impressed with how immaculate and maintained this ship was. Like I have stated in the review above this total experience has exceeded all my expectations and has left me with a very memorable life time of memories I will never forget.
