  3. Grand Princess
The Alaska Itinerary and departing from San Francisco was important for the size of our group of 30. The condition of the ship has been maintained but is definitely less luxurious and less comfortable than other Princess ships as well as other cruise lines. Some expenditures such as the internet service is a complete waste of money. The efforts of the crew and staff are some of the best and most professional I’ve experienced. The food was average but I would never want to try and prepare a menu for the masses. One of the two specialty restaurants was unremarkable whereas the other was fantastic. Of the four ports of call. The time in Juneau and Skagway are adequate Sitka and Victoria are grossly insufficient Everyone in our group as well as many we interacted with on the ship were disappointed with the lack of time in both Sitka and especially Victoria

Some of it great, some of it not so great
