We have been on many cruises with Princess and HAL. We had a fabulous time and wonderful weather! Cruise Director, John was EVERYWHERE and very entertaining! He had a variety of activities. Loved the North to Alaska talks and activities. Our room steward, Romulo was the best we have ever had--he called us by name everytime we saw him, always had our ice bucket filled, changed out the mini-bar for us when we couldn't get through to Room Service on the first day, and gave us robes without asking--these are just a few of the examples of his excellent service. The captain was fabulous--we saw him frequently about the ship and at different events--he was engaging and enthusiastic about Princess ships and sailing. We were lucky to have great weather (no rain) for our two glacier days and in Ketchikan! We enjoyed 3 dinners in the dining room at night, only used the Horizon court for breakfast--hard to screw up eggs, bacon and sausage. Never a crowd. Always had our coffee cups full. We were on the Emerald deck, and there was a musty smell at the 400 area of cabins, on the 5th day a bucket was put out for drips from the ceiling--that is the only maintenence issue we saw. We loved our not very obstructed outside view cabin E606--great views out the port side! We saw all of the production shows--British Invasion and Born to Dance were outstanding. Let Us Entertain You was horrific--it was just a hot mess (bad singing, choreography, and costumes). Had an issue with a Princess fishing tour and received a partial refund--happy with the outcome (first time we were ever dissatified with a Princess tour).

Excellent service, engaging crew and beautiful weather!

Cabin Review

Oceanview (obstructed view)
Cabin OW E606
Nice cabin. Fantastic storage. Although is is categorized as an obstructed view it had minimal obstructions. Would book this cabin again.
