Nice Alaskan Cruise

Coral Princess Cruise Review by triciacoll

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jun 2018
  • Destination: Alaska
  • Cabin Type: Balcony

We chose an Alaskan Land & Cruise Package. We did the land portion first, which was good because that was more strenuous. We boarded the ship in Anchorage & sailed to Vancouver. The first 2 days were spent on the ship as we viewed the glaciers. The next 3 days we were in 3 ports (Skagway, Juneau & Ketchikan). Last full day was at sea. The ship was well-maintained & appointed. Our balcony cabin was clean. I didn't like that our balcony sat back so that balconies below us jutted out further. The shower is small. Our bed was wonderful (Princess takes pride in it's luxury at sea) - so much so that we purchased the mattress when we got home! The plug situation was difficult. You could only plug in one item at the desk & one item behind the TV. I had brought a plug panel with extra plugs but it would not fit into the plugs available. The hair dryer was at the desk. I would have liked it in the bathroom. The food was good - not outstanding. The shows were terrific. The bars emptied out early - 12mn. Felt they could have had more shipboard activities. There is a covered pool on board, as well as hot tubs. Movies on deck was nice - even served free popcorn! Personnel were friendly and efficient. Excursions ran smoothly. Loved the White Pass Railway, Mushers Camp & Medenhall Glacier Hike & Whale Watch. Towns were cute with lots of shops. I think it was a great once-in-a-lifetime trip.

White Pass Scenic Railway

After boarding the train, you are told both sides of the train offer excellent views of the rise to the top. What they don't tell you is that 1/2 the ride one side of the train sees everything & then they make you switch seats so that the other side sees the view on the way back.

Mendenhall Glacier

First boarded a boat with 15 people to view whales (guaranteed!) We saw at least 4. Had to stay 100 ft. from them. Then we boarded a bus to take a walk on the Mendenhall Glacier Trail. It was about a mile over flat land to a beautiful view of the glacier from water's edge.

Vancouver

Spent 10 hours in the airport. Tired of getting on & off buses, trains, cars & just wanted to get home.
