Third Alaska Cruise: Pacific Princess Cruise Review by Cruising Professors
Overall Member Rating
Third Alaska Cruise
Our schedule port of call were: Ketchikan, Skagway, Valdez, Seward, Kodiak, Icy Strait Point, Juneau, and Victoria BC. Because of bad weather and rough seas Kodiak was canceled, so we stayed in Seward and extra day. We also spent a day in Glacier Bay. Over all it was a wonderful cruise. Our only personal complaint related to Princess's beds. The are very hard and uncomfortable. Our travel agent suggested that we ask out steward if they had a foam rubber pad that could be put over the mattress. there was, he did and after that we got a better nights sleep. The other complaint is one in general involving the laundry on board. the is one public laundry room with four washer and driers for 670 passengers on a two week cruise and NO "special" laundry service offered. In general Princess has an excellent product, but its beds are the one area where it needs vast improvement.
Valdez! We took the shuttle bus into town and toured it. To include the local museum. In the afternoon, we took a Princess sponsored excursion to Thompson Pass and Worthington Glacier. While it had rained all morning, it was only cloudy in the afternoon and I got some good photographs of the glacier, as well as Bridal Veil Falls and Horsetail Falls.
Seward! During the Morning we took the Shuttle bus into Seward and Walked around and shopped. In the afternoon we took a Princess sponsored excursion "The Best of Seward". We took a "school bus" to Exit Glacier and hiked over rough terrain to the edge of it. It was rough on many in our group which consisted mainly of senior citizens. When we got back to the ship we learned that Kodiak, our next port of call had been canceled because of rough seas and bad weather. Less
