Review for Coral Princess to Alaska

We booked this ship for a family vacation with extended family and we were all deeply disappointed in this cruise. We all travelled together on Princess approx. 10 years ago and the quality of service and food has greatly declined since our first cruise. During bad weather (wind) this ship is unable to dock in Ketchikan. While 2 other ships were able to dock shortly before us the Coral ...

we picked this cruise so that we could experience Alaska and sail back to Australia. The overall experience was not that good. The food was not very good at all and had very little variety and flavour. The entertainment was extremely disappointing and not up to par with other cruises we had had prior to this. There were a lot of minor things that made this cruise much less enjoyable than what we ...

We chose this cruise for my husband and I to return to Juneau and to share the experience with our 2 boys. It was their first time on a cruise and we pre-booked 2 excursions through Princess. Due to engine trouble, the cruse departed over 12 hours later than scheduled and at partial speed so Juneau was completely removed from the schedule and when we got to Ketchikan it was pouring rain so our ...

We had mechanical issues so we left Vancouver 11 hours later than expected. Then was told we could only travel at ½ speed. So they changed our itinerary to Ketchikan - Prince Rupert from Juneau - Ketchikan. Was hoping to see a glacier(s), of course that didn’t happen. Only spent 6.5 hours in Ketchikan our only Alaskan stop and 11 hours in Prince Rupert. Had to cancel our original tour planned for ...

I chose this cruise so I could get my family to experience a cruise to Alaska-Ketchikan and Juneau. But alas, the cruise did not complete the itinerary they advertised. The ship was delayed in sailing for more than 10 hours because its marine engineers/technicians did not keep this ship in tip top shape to cruise its way up to Juneau. Instead of going to Juneau, the ship turned back and made a ...

Like many others an Alaska cruise was a dream of ours for a long time, we had planned this trip for years. Bottom line is we did NOT get to go to the ports Princess promised, no Juneau, no glacier, no snow capped mountains.... Ship was broken and we went to some other places, but not the "crown jewel" of the whole trip. I get it, things break, but giving us a $100 to spend on board for merch at ...

My family (a party of 15 people total) selected this cruise line because of the ports and shore excursions we were promised. Traveling to Juneau to see the glaciers, wildlife, and sled dogs were items on many of our bucket lists. Unfortunately, we did not get to see any of those things. Due to mechanical issues on the ship, we experienced a 12 hour delay at the Vancouver port and Princess Cruises ...

This was my first Princess Cruise and although we paid a great price for a balcony cabin we were 12 hours leaving port, due to a mechanical problem, our itinerary changed, we did not go to Juneau as planned, we did not cruise the outside of Vancouver Island which I was looking forward too. The communications regarding the mechanical problem were poor but in general I would say all communications ...

Due to the delay The itinerary was changed eliminating Juneau, Alaska and adding prince Rupert, Canada which we had no desire to see and did not get off the ship. To compensate for the change we were given a credit of $100 each. We felt ...

Alaska is GREAT - Princess not so much

I have to say straight away that the natural beauty of Alaska is GREAT, and reading the following review should not deter anyone from going to see such a wonderful place. Looking over the side of the ship to see Pacific White-Sided dolphins and Orca whales playing in the ship's wake is a real thrill. The train ride in Skagway is Great - The Glaciers are AWESOME. So for the Natural Beauty ...
