Great ship, great cruise line, rather boring place to visit

It was a family cruise with number of others already booked on this Alaska cruise. We went on this one because others already book the cruise. I found Alaska cruising pretty boring to visit tiny rural towns that ...

Alaska great, ship disappointing

We stayed in one of the larger suites C409 (Penthouse), and we're disappointed mainly regarding the balcony, although the cabin was dated. The furniture was old with black mildew on most surfaces and in disrepair. ...

If you're looking for an affordable adequate cruise Princess is for you.

On board: the room, balcony, was adequate; food also adequate, however, if pastry is your thing you will not find a decent croissant on Princess; flour to fat ratio all wrong. The room attendant was very friendly ...
