I liked the idea of a one way cruise, rather than a round-trip journey. Very smooth embarkation process. The scenery couldn't have been more stunning, and we were favored with good weather 6 out of 7 days; I've been told that's a rare ... Read more

Loved the cruise however this ship has seen better days. There are maintenance issues with sewer smells in the stairwells, tattered furniture in public areas and bathrooms that have holes in the doors, with lots of rust all around. Our ... Read more

My husband and I just returned from a 10 day cruise to Alaska. This was our 5th cruise on the Grand Princess and yes, she is getting old, that being said the ship is only as good as her crew. We had a great crew. No complaints. ... Read more

The Grand Princess is aging gracefully, don't waste your time looking for faults. Pier 27 in San Francisco makes the check in process painless. Such a vast improvement over the former Pier 35. The food was wonderful outside of a rib eye ... Read more

The trip to Alaska is so beautiful. This one didn't disappoint us. The weather was perfect while in Alaska, very little rain and mild weather throughout. We couldn't get into Tracy Arm Fjord, and had to settle for Endicott instead. ... Read more

This cruise, combined with a land tour, was an excellent way to see Alaska. In every port we focused on activities such as sight-seeing, whale watching, visiting glaciers, native villages, and National Park Visitor Centers. Sure, we also ... Read more

Our 14 day cruise and land tour was an incredible experience as first time cruisers and first time visitors to Alaska. In 14 days we had only rain of any consequence 3 times and in a one of those we were in a coach (40 passenger bus) ... Read more

This was our 9th cruise with Princess, and second on the Emerald, and 4th Inside Passage to Alaska. I was more disappointed in this cruise than in the past. Because of the "Club Class" they would not allow you to eat lunch in ... Read more

Studied the internet with reviews and decided on the Coral based on size, dining, and itinerary. This was our first cruise and it was for our 30th anniversary so it needed to be special. We did the Princess Transfer from the airport to ... Read more

I chose Princess on other people's recommendation, but I was not impressed and don't plan to use Princess again. I had been on two other cruises on Carnival and found them much more fun, well-planned, and friendly. First of all, our room ... Read more

This was my first cruise and several years in the making. Overall a four 'star' rating feels very fair to the Ruby, which was a very nice ship with only a couple of issues that would have made this a 5-out-of-5 affair. My boyfriend and ... Read more

We had no problems at embarkation. It is a hassle and I've had better experiences but boarding 3000 passengers lends itself to lines and waiting. I would have liked to meet our room steward and gotten a quick overview of what to ... Read more

This was a "bucket list" trip for my husband and me. We added a 7-day land tour to get as much of the Alaska experience as possible. The ship, crew, excursions and glacier views were awesome. Our Star Princess Aloha deck balcony ... Read more

This ship wasn't our choice. It was part of a scenic trip. The ship itself is lovely but it does need refurbishing. Our cabin was on deck 11 Baja 709. Good place on ship. Dining was great. Was not rapped in the restaurant. The Amalfi - It ... Read more

I wish I could say something good about the food but in all honesty I have to say food was prepared long before it was served, not a good thing. The desserts looked very nice but really had little to no "taste". Service in ... Read more

First, this was not an average cruise but I could not get this to change at the top of the page. This was a 5 star cruise and maybe even a 6 star if I could. We choose this cruise many months ago because it is easy to get to San ... Read more
