Book with Princess because I thought Princess was a step up from Carnival and they'd been cruising Alaska for 50 years. Plus I wanted to get close to Hubbard Glacier and the glaciers in Glacier Bay. Coral Princess is old and parts of it feels dated. Our Cabin had plenty of space and storage and a nice balcony. Our cabin Steward was great. The food was not impressive, but at least I wasn't tempted to overeat and didn't gain an ounce on my trip. The entertainment just kept repeating itself. There were a few good acts, but all the performers were the same people every evening just rotated them around the ship. I thought they'd bring on some Alaskan locals, but didn't. We did a Cruise-Tour with the land portion first; and referred the land portion over the cruise portion. The excursions we booked were all great fun. Scenery was good, too.
