We had a fabulous week to Alaska on Princess's very first cruise since returning to operation. The crew was as thrilled as we were to finally be on a cruise, after all of the cancellations and rescheduling of the past 18 months. Princess was ready. They used the time away to fine tune Ocean Medallion, which is truly amazing. What a game changer!
The food in Club Class was outstanding. We had two great experiences in their Crown Grill specialty restaurant and one less impressive trip to la Mer, their new French specialty restaurant.
The people in the ports were equally happy to see us. Lots of empty storefronts which is to be expected given they lost the entire 2020 season and half of this year. I suspect by next year Alaska will be back to normal.
The Club Class Mini-suite is well done. We feel very comfortable and pampered.
