Not impressed

The entire purpose of the trip was a fishing excursion in Juneau. Our Juneau port was cancelled and that was extremely disappointing. Instead of offering a discount for the next cruise (to same ports) They gave us $100 to be spent on the ship. Most of the crew were not friendly, we ate at the bayou for an extra charge and the food was terrible!!! : It tasted like it had been frozen and prepared in ...

I chose this cruise based on reviews from previous travellers. We were sorely disappointed. First the ship was delayed leaving for 10 hours. This meant that we missed one of the ports we were supposed to see which is the main reason we took this cruise . The compensation from the cruise line was a slap in the face considering the entire reason for going on this trip ( Juneau AK ) was skipped . ...

We were suppose to Leave Vancouver September 11, 2019 at 5:30, but do to mechancical issues (propultion problems) the captain came on at 8:00 to tell us that we will not be leaving until approx midnight - in actuality it was 3:30 am on the 12th, and that we will be getting a $100 on board credit and 50% off the price of this cruise towards another future cruise. Because of this issue we will not ...

If Not Change of Itinerary than the Perfect Cruise

Let me start with explaining why I only gave this a 3 out of 5. It started out great in that it was a pleasant surprise that we were able to board right after going through all the check in procedures to start taking advantage of the boats’ amenities. Get there early, as it does take a while to get through check-in/customs. Now, in my eyes, a cruise ship should be fit & ready to sail according ...

Chose this cruise to see Juneau, glacier bay and mendenhime glacier. Due to engine problems, we had a 12 hour delay leaving originating port of Vancouver Canada. 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 ...

Engine Issues - No Juneau!

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 ...

Always heard the Alaska Cruise was a great one to take. I was impressed with the decor and cleanliness of the ship. It was well laid out, with lots to see and lots of activities to take p[art in. We tried a few and enjoyed them a lot. Engine trouble before we left port caused over a twelve hour departure delay, causing us to have to skip the Juneau stop and the glaciers. Although this was very ...

Cruise to Alaska cut short, no compensation

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

Chose this cruise to see the two cities in Alaska we haven’t been to, Juneau and Ketchikan. Ship was delayed because of mechanical problems so Juneau was cut from the voyage. As compensation they gave us $100. in shipboard credit and 15% off a cruise in the next year. Big deal! We wanted an Alaska cruise and got Ketchikan and Prince Rupert in Canada. Did not get what we paid for! Also, called the ...

Worst Vacation experience ever!

Worst vacation experience ever! We will never cruise again after the nightmare 5 day trip to Alaska on the Island Princess we just returned from. Our 5 day cruise was suppose to include two stops; Juneau and Ketchikan. We sailed on a broken ship, the stop in Juneau was cancelled, the staff was rude and surly, the food was inedible, the gym was abysmal, and the “activities” on board were sales ...

I had high expectations for seeing a glacier and snow in Alaska. That was the motivation for taking this 5 day “sampler” of 2 ports in Alaska, vs 4 day with 1 port. Unfortunately, the embarkation port exit was postponed 11 hours. This delay and the inability to correct the problem resulted in a port cut, Juneau. The ship itself is older, and looks outdated. The refurbishment done a few years ...
