They main thing I want to point out is that this ship is dated and it mostly shows in the cabins. The buffet food was marginal, but hey, there is only so much you can do with the buffet food. Main dining was hit or miss, but mostly hit - especially the desserts. The Curtis Stone Share was a neat experience, but could have been better if staff didn't keep mixing up our dishes. The entertainment was amazing. Princess needs to spend a little more in in the tech and props department to support the fabulous talent they have. Service was hit or miss but mainly a hit. Cabin stewards were great. I loved this Alaska experience and it was very multi-generational and good for people of all ages. My son loved it; but Princess needs to get on board with accommodating to kids with special needs. I mostly loved the ports. Having only a few hours in Ketchikan and Victoria was a waste of a stop. Wish there had been more time do more than see the tourist trap type shops. Princess only steers you to the preferred shops that they associate with.

Mixed, but overall good.
