*Hour wait to get on ship in Whittier, poorly organized *Rooms at McKinley & Denali were like camping or hunting *Hotel Captain Cook was excellent and restaurants were superb *Salmon Berry Tours is excellent in Anchorage *Train ride to Whittier was long, be prepared. No water for purchase *Excursion issues in two cities: Train in front of us derailed for the White Pass Scenic Railway. We had to go backwards to Canada (show passports) and have rescue buses pick us up. A 2h45m tour turned into 6 hours. Got refund but did not care to see the town after that. Juneau- paid for Mendenhall glacier and Whale Quest tour. Guaranteed to see whales! Our most exciting part of the trip was cancelled because the boats were not working. We got to the dock, full bus, just to turn around. Will never see whales. Still waiting for refund. *Engine caught fire on our way back to Vancouver. *Had good experience at Sabatini's, bad at Crown Grill. *Cabin steward (Teofilo) was excellent *Entertainment, especially,comedian AJ Jamal was great

Princess can do better

Cabin MB B318
Cabin was fine, well kept. The sofa really needs to be replaced.
