Chose a connoisseur land/cruise tour based on advice from travel agent and brochures. Amenities not as stated in the brochures. Cruise did not meet our expectations. Length 7 days. Embarkation and disembarkation ok until you get to lengthy customs. Ship entertainment very sparse at best. Not as stated online and in the brochures. Only 2 short shows the whole week. Nothing for 19-21 year olds to do. Food average in the buffet and anytime seating. Crown Grill dining the best. No whales sited. Our stateroom was on deck 16 and unfortunately there were very noisy kids on deck 17 running up and down ALL DAY & ALL NIGHT! Port stops ok. Typical tourist stuff. Skagway was fun. Museum, downtown shopping and a show representing the old "red light" district. Excursions were plentiful. We did our own and saved money. Glacier and wilderness the best. Tram (dont take if you don't like heights...1800 ft off the ground)in Ketchikan and shore plane tours ok.

Cabin Review

Mini-Suite with Balcony
Cabin MC L212
Average, Uncomfortable beds!!!! Poor value for the money.
Lido Deck Inside Cabins, Balcony Cabins, Suite Cabins

Would never cruise with Princess based on brochures, ven though this cruise line is owned by Carnival. Definitely overated. More money should be used for capital expenditures at the resorts.
