Our first Princess Cruise was fantastic. Went with another couple and we had a great time. Weather was fantastic in all ports. Missed Tracy Arm, but Endicott was great. Viewing very close. Only did buffet once, but dining room and Crown Grill, plus a couple of room services were great. Just not enough time in ports with doing a shore excursion. Could have spent 2 days each in Ketchikan and Skagway. The towns were small, but quaint. Juneau was just Ok. Could have left off stop at Vancouver as it was only a few hours and at night. Will go back to Vancouver.

Spa services were just too expensive. Pizza and trident grill was very good. Shows were good. Adele singer should be in the big theater.

Saw many bears in Ketchikan. Roberts tram in Juneau was great. Fantastic views. White Pass train ride was fun, again fantastic views. Could have spent more time in Ketchikan and Skagway as towns were small, but quaint. Skagway was our favorite port. Could have skipped Vancouver as only a few hours there and mostly at night. Very pretty City, will go back to visit for a few days.

Cabin Review

Balcony

Cabin BC

Laid out great. Small but roomy because of the way it was laid out. Shower small. Balcony was large and could open to adjoining couple. Cover over balcony made experience better than open ones below. Winston (room steward) was fantastic.
