First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

First time cruiser. We did a pile of research and determined that Mrs. Cruiser and I wanted to be on Princess on the southbound sailing from Whittier through the Alaska Glaciers (Hubbard Glacier, Glacier Bay). We also stopped at Sitka (Skagway was closed), Juneau, and Ketchikan. All in all, everything was done very well by Princess. Embarkation was very smooth, but in Whittier, there was no ...

We had taken the Inner Passage cruise in Alaska many years ago and always regretted not having gone to the interior, so this time we took the 7 day land tour before getting aboard the Grand Princess for the 7 day cruise back to Vancouver. The Land Tour: We started out in Fairbanks, where we enjoyed a train excursion to a gold dredge, where we panned for gold and I got enough gold to put ...

Sailed with Star Princess in 2018 to Alaska and had a amazing time. This time around was the worst ever. Both cruises were land/sea tours. To start princess raised prices on excursions and you got less for your money. Salmon bake in Fairbanks did not include desert and tea/coffee as stated in description. In 2018 it was all you can eat and this time it was one small portion of side and main with ...

We had taken an Alaskan cruise on Princess back in 2019 and wanted to take our grown children and their spouses on one because it was so wonderful. I had shared all my excitement with our kids and talked them into trying a Princess Cruise. I was embarrassed as to how this cruise came nowhere near lining up in any way with what I had promised them based on our previous one. Don't know if I'll take ...

My wife and I really enjoy cruising. We have done this itinerary in 2008 and joined friends again. We did 4 days into Alaska staying at the Princess lodges around Denali which are very nice. Take the train (Princess sightseeing car) from Denali to Whitter and board the ship. The ship is older and dated, worn. the service is very good , food is very good, dining offerings are very ...

We chose a Princess cruise thinking we were selecting a top shelf experience. Sadly, the cruise experience was less than we were hoping for. On a positive note, the highlight of the cruise was the on-board staff. They were kind and gracious at every interaction. The ship itself was mostly tired and showing its age despite a recent retrofit. A bright spot was the fitness center. it ...

Wanted to do the Alaskan itinerary and chose Princess because they have such a huge stake in Alaska. This was also our 4th cruise with Princess and had a pretty good experience in the past. We stayed in 4 different properties over the 5 day land tour, which was a little tiring, but we knew that going into the trip. All of the coach drivers were amazing! The pre-arranged land excursions were ...

This was our first cruise since the onset of Covid. We are platinum level Princess passengers and it was our 3rd Alaskan Cruise. We booked this cruise on the Majestic Princess mainly to use our on board credits that we received when our last cruise in February 2020 was cancelled early due to Noro virus. The credits would have expired by end of 2022. We requested our credits be extended into 2023 ...

Our friends convinced us to take Majestic Princess to Alaska as they’d taken it twice before and raved about it. Unfortunately, we had rainy, cloudy weather 5 of the 7 days and a landslide closed the Skagway port so we were rerouted to Icy Strait. This port was small, and we didn’t find much to do in the 12 hours we were there. We weren’t able to see a lot at our first four points of interest - ...

My wife and I just returned from an 11 day cruise/tour on the Royal Princess. Our cruise/tour stated on land in Fairbanks and we stayed in the Princess Lodges during the land portion. We had hoped that going in July would have resulted in a cruise/tour with clear skies a warm days but that was not the case. For the most part it was cold and wet the majority of the time with temperatures in the ...
