Golden Princess Cruise Review by patty1366

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Sep 2019
  • Destination: Alaska
  • Cabin Type: Mini-Suite with Balcony

We wanted to see the interior of Alaska, as well as the tidal glaciers and seaports. Our guide on land was outstanding. Alexa was so knowledgeable and she was able to give us history or the area, plus making sure our tours and accommodations were ready for us. We had Club Class dining, and that was a new experience for us, but and really enjoyed the extras that came with that. Most of all the wait staff was great and there was never a line to get seated. The excursions were very well done as well. We enjoyed the gold panning at Dredge 8, and sternwheel trip on the river, the train ride out of Skagway was over the top. It is a wonder the rail road got built and how the people made the trip to the gold fields was amazing. They must have had the true pioneer spirit. The entertainment on board the ship was fantastic !!!! We really enjoyed the productions shows and the comic was really funny and the singer had a wonderful voice. I highly reccommend this cruise. If you go in Sept. as we did, dress in layers and be prepared for rain and it was chilly late at night when we went out to see the Nnorthern Lights.

A short 1 hour tour of the city. Our trolley driver was really funny and had interesting stories to tell.

Mendenhall Glacier

The visitors center was the highlight for us. It was a rainy day and foggy so didn't do the tram up the mountain, but did walk around at the glacier a little. The rangers gave several talks about the glacier, and how it moved and why and were very interesting.

Ketchikan

We just walked around town and in Creek Street in the creek, we got ot see sealions. They had come to feed on the salmon that had spawned and died.
