We wanted to see the glaciers of Alaska, and Princess provided a good price for this voyage. The inside cabin with obstructed view was very obstructed with rescue boat blocking the whole window (625). The ship on the whole was in good working order. The staff seemed understaffed and Customer Service (Purser) were not on the ball for a billing/corkage charges to our account. Food on the whole was good, except the hot steamers on the Horizon Buffet did not seem to hold the food warm, cold at times. Our cabin was well maintained. Ship clean. The debarking at the ports went well, except it would be nice if the signs directing direction to gangplank might be more informative. Visit to Ketchican was a rainy and the Salmon Fishing trip was cancelled. Both the Junnea and Skagway went well, a lot of interesting scenery. The Train Trip at Skagway was a pleasant way of seeing a lot of scenery and learning some history. The two cruise day in fiords some good weather and some spectacular scenery was enjoyed. It was nice to have Park Rangers sometimes giving a description of the area the ship was in. While not knowing how we were getting to the airport, it was handled smoothly and had tour explanation of the route to the airport and Anchorage. Not giving the trip 5 stars was for the miscues on us by the staff and the cold steamers.

The trip as promised was visually entrancing
