Our second cruise with Princess and they did not disappoint. Very nice ship, extremely clean and so pretty with light bright mediterranean colours and theme. All staff were fantastic. The food was amazing. Great margaritas in two different bars. I am pretty sure they were inclined to overpour on the drinks. We were delighted to find we were not hounded constantly to purchase beverage packages or anything else for that matter. They did not push drinks in the buffet but were happy to get you something if asked. And the price for everything seemed quite reasonable compared to other cruises we have been on. We were pleasantly surprised to find that specialty coffee drinks at La Patisserie were reasonably priced and that the 15 coffee punch card we purchased also included brewed coffee and premium teas for free. Lots of entertainment and activities throughout the day which we thoroughly enjoyed. Our only shore excursion was booked through the ship and was good quality (White Pass Railway and Yukon). Although we didn't use it this time, one of the things we like about Princess is that you can buy a small bottle of liquor for your cabin at a reasonable price, i.e., 13 oz bottle of gin for $17.50 US. Nice to have a cocktail in the cabin once in a while. We especially loved the Crab Shack dinner with a huge portion of Alaska King Crab and shrimp! We booked another cruise with Princess to Italy.
