Anniversary and Birthday trip-we both turned fifty and it is our thirtieth wedding Anniversary. We had decided to treat ourselves to something special a we have always Wanted to see Alaska and see something “once in a lifetime”.

Alaska Which was absolutely fabulous, provided that experience. We were blessed to see pods of whales migranting south from the ship as we sat on our baloncy. Arriving in Ketchikan, the beauty of God’s was everywhere. Our excursion was the Eagles,Lighthouses and Totems, we saw several eagles and could spot them on our own after a brief lesson from the captain.

Next stop was Tracey Arms Fjord, we took the tender boat into the Fjord and it was simply beautiful that I do not possess the vocabulary to do it justice-but a word of advice is to spend the money and do it.

Cabin Review

Balcony

Cabin B1

Great place to spend a week. Room with a balcony was the way to go for something extra but still affordable.

Princess does a great job of getting 2800+ people on and off the boat in an efficient and timely manner.

Staff throughout the ship were courteous and helpful.
