Oldie, but Goodie!

Cruise was beyond expectations.

This cruise was always on our wish list and we are glad we've done it. The food in Horizon Court was varied and there was always something different to tempt the appetite . We did not bother with "anytime dining" ...

This was an average Princess cruise

We chose this cruise because it sailed out of San Francisco and visited two of our favorite places, Sitka and Glacier Bay. We also have more perks on Princess although they were not as important on this cruise as ...

Alaska round trip from San Francisco a winner

We chose this cruise to Alaska because it started and ended from San Francisco, where we live. Air transportation was not necessary. To my knowledge, this is the only such cruise, so we signed on immediately ...

Princess 'sinks' to new culinary and Kids Gone Wild lows!

Dining on the high seas is the signature feature of most all cruise lines. They extol the virtues of their pedigree chefs and drown us with photos of the most exotic dishes. For our part we all buy into this savory ...
