  3. Crown Princess
We took our 7-yr-old granddaughter on her first cruise. She loved it and we loved it through her eyes! (This was my 4th trip to Alaska.) She loved the Pelican Group activities. Michael, the naturalist was great. It was an enjoyable trip. The ship was well-kept. There were workers painting, polishing, etc. The cabin was adequate for the 3 of us and our steward was very good. We always enjoy the production shows with the Princess singers and dancers, however the shows on this cruise were not quite up to par. Too much smoke burning our eyes on the Magic show. The sets and props were not as spectacular as usual. Carlos Oscar is the best comedian of the century, and totally rated G for all audiences! Please get a better recipe for the "dressing" in the "turkey and dressing" entree. That sweet dressing was gross, disgusting, and not suitable for diabetics! Same for the sweet potatoes. A nice, unadulterated sweet potato would have been delicious. Ketchikan was shortchanged. There needs to be more time there. It is unfair to the city and to the passengers to be there for such a short time!
