Island Princess Cruise Review by mhunsberger

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

We did a lot of research before booking. Princess land and sea package is the way to go. From airport arrival to airport departure, we and our luggage were seamlessly transported through the best of Alaska.

We started at the Four Seasons in Vancouver. Excellent hotel with a great location. We skipped the bus the the pier to bike around Stanley Park. Well worth it. Then we walked about 5 block to the pier. Our luggage had already gone to the ship.

Next was a 7 night cruise up the Inner passage. The scenery was spectacular. The service on the ship was as good as we remembered from previous Princess cruises. Our planned helicopter trip to Mendenhall Glacier was cancelled due to weather. We were able to get on a bus tour to see the glacier, which was a pretty decent plan B. Yukon Rail, Bus and Dogsled in Skagway is a highlight tour. Scenic sailing in Glacier Bay and College Fjord are amazing.

Princess also does a great job on the land portion. Princess lodges and transportation live up to the standards of the cruise line. The upgrade to the full day Tundra Wilderness Tour in Denali is well worth it.

We would highly recommend this package as a great way to see the best of Alaska in comfort.
