Ports of call were great. Most lodges were nice but lots of coach riding and trains. Saw very little wildlife but weather was fabulous. Got to see Denali finally after the clouds passed. I felt excursions were way over priced but very ... Read more

This was my third Alaska cruise, and I think my 4th or 5th cruise on the Grand Princess, and in general I had a great time - I knew what to expect and that's what I got, with a few surprise highlights and a few disappointments. Let's ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we ran out of time planning a trip to Alaska on our own. We had friends who had done the cruise a couple of weeks before and they said it is a wonderful cruise, scenic, and with good stops/excursions. I was ... Read more

We wanted the full Alaska experience and were willing to pay for Princess's excellent reputation for this result. Accommodations at "top notch" hotels. Embarkation was a disaster! We were rushed to get to the port from our ... Read more

We chose this 10 day Alaska cruise for the ports - and they were great. Excursions were well done but a little expensive. It was a huge disappointment when we arrived that our full price suite did not have a balcony - we were really ... Read more

Having cruised on Holland America, Celebrity, Royal Caribbean, Regent Seven Seas, and previously on Princess, I have experiences to afford comparisons. We had a mini suite and it was adequate, anything smaller would have been pathetic. Our ... Read more

We never had been to Alaska and we figured Princess would be a good brand to take to Alaska. We chose this itinerary to keep the price down a little bit. We were in a group of six people total, all adults. The ports we visited in ... Read more
