  3. Grand Princess
We chose this cruise because we like the at sea days as much as the port visit. glacier Bay was awesome, and the Park Rangers who boarded the ship were excellent. Sadly our weather was not great but we made the most of it. The Grand could use some updating, but Princess did well with what they had. Embarkation was good except for the alcohol control point. At first we had someone who was making everyone take all the bottles out and show them to him. This caused a huge back up! Luckily someone else took over and believed folks when they showed their boarding passes and said one bottle for one person. Disembarking was OK but my suitcase was misplaced (despite being tagged correctly) and I was only able to find it with the help of 2 ladies from Princess who walked up and down EVERY aisle until they found it. MAJOR kudos to them. Entertainment was very good and the food excellent. The balcony cabins are good although not as spacious as comparable cabins on Celebrity.

A Good Trip
