it was the best time to go according to my schedule. We were going to go next September but we changed our minds. I am 81 years old and who knows what can happen in a year's time. This cruise has been on my bucket list for years. My wife had no interest in going so I went with my daughter. She was a big help particularly after I broke my wrist at check-in, The crab fest in Ketchikan was the ...

We chose this cruise primarily because it has been a dream of ours to see Alaska and it didn’t disappoint. The scenery was outstanding and the excursions we took, were all amazing and gave us a real taste of what Alaska has to offer. We booked our Juneau and Skagway excursions before we left and Ketchikan on the dock near the ship. The Emerald Princess was the second cruise ship we have been on, ...

Wow!! Princess runs an extremely well organized cruise. Our excursion was fantastic. The service on board was amazing and the picture package was a total value!!!! We had the best formal dining room experience with an incredibly wonderful wait staff. It was every thing we would have wanted in a cruise experience. The comedian on board was the best comedian I’ve ever seen in person. My kids and I ...

My husband and I were celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary with an Alaskan cruise aboard the Emerald Princess. Loved the staff and crew! They were professional, friendly, and fun. Strike up a conversation with any of them and you will learn so much about them, where they are from, and get a little glimpse into their lives......very honored to have met everyone we did. The excursions were ...

Great Cruise, Bad Service

The ports were awesome and the dining staff were also great. The room stewards were lazy and only did what they had to. The bed fell on me and I got "sorry". No special treatment on this cruise, no towel animals or anything extra for sure, just the bare minimum. Food was ok but not a lot of variety. Buffet was small and had most of the same food every night. Dining room staff was great! You would ...

Our first Princess Cruise was fantastic. Went with another couple and we had a great time. Weather was fantastic in all ports. Missed Tracy Arm, but Endicott was great. Viewing very close. Only did buffet once, but dining room and Crown Grill, plus a couple of room services were great. Just not enough time in ports with doing a shore excursion. Could have spent 2 days each in Ketchikan and ...

We liked the selection of food at the buffet but the taste wasn’t great nor the preparation. I got sick after the first night after eating there the day before (horrible diarrhea & vomiting) or lunch from the Gastric Pub that same day. Share restaurant was great, the only one with good food. The Crown restaurant, my husband had tender filet, mine was tough. I should have taken a picnic basket ...

My friend invited me to travel with her family group to celebrate our birthdays. The Family choose the cruise line, so I was not involved in the decision of a cruise line or ship. Their travel agent only cruises on Princess. This was my second cruise to the Inner Passage. First was on Celebrity (fabulous!). I was falsely under the impression that Princess is the top of the line in cruising. I was ...
