Good but not great

A good cruise; not a great cruise. Ship - This particular ship had really bad vibrations. I was in the Navy so I know the difference between motion due to the sea and the unusual. This was unusual. It was so bad we couldn't sit at the back of the ship and relax. Embarkation and disembarkation went extremely smoothly & quickly. I particularly like that there are no porters - you just ...

Our cruise was just an expensive boat ride.

We chose this cruise because we wanted to see Glacier Bay and hoped to spend time in Skagway. We departed Seattle on time Saturday afternoon. We arrived in Juneau per our schedule Monday morning. Weather was usual Southeast/Juneau rain and cloudy. Overall our day on the beach in Juneau was a good experience. We did plan to stop for King Crab at the Crab Shack, however their prices we out ...

Crown Princess really delivered on our first cruise to Alaska!

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

I always do a lot of research before any vacation. I found that Princess (Crown) goes through Glacier Bay - which many do not. It was our first cruise, and I had read many not-so-positive reviews about the wear and tear of the Crown, the poor buffet food, the rude crew...I was a bit apprehensive. However, from embarkation to disembarkation, it was wonderful! EVERY crew member I passed smiled ...

Beautiful scenery, but a few things on board need worked out.

We are long time Princess cruisers, with Platinum Captain's Circle status. This is going to sound like a negative review, and I don't mean for it to. If I were brand new to cruising, I would have had only glowing things to say about our trip, but seen through the lens of past cruises with Princess and aboard this same ship, I was disappointed. We traveled with a group of 16 friends, many of us ...

Background My spouse booked this cruise in celebration of our 45th anniversary. We have cruised with Princess before and our last time was in 2011 on the Diamond Princess, also to Alaska. This was my 4th and my spouse’s 3rd cruise to Alaska. This was also our first cruise from Seattle and it was round trip; our other Alaska cruises have always been northbound from Vancouver to either Seward or ...

First Cruise, Great Experience

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

Alaska was the destination of choice...so cruising seemed the best way to do it. We live near the port and found arrangements to be very easy. I had no idea we were going to love rising the way we do now. The cabin was much roomier than anticipated, the service was phenominal, and amenities were fabulous. Every port was wonderful and we could not wait to book our next cruise. We enjoyed ...

I choose this particular cruise line based on reviews. My destination was to Alaska, regardless of which boat to take. However, after having sailed on Norwegian and Carnival, I opted to go with Princess based on the grander scale everyone was raving about. Unfortunately, I more than likely won't be choosing Princess again. More than once from several employees we received rude and obnoxious ...

COST CUTTING & LACK OF HANDICAP ACCESS IS PROBLEM ON OUR ALASKAN CRUISE

We have sailed a number of times with PRINCESS and found the trips very enjoyable BUT this recent trip to ALASKA was very disappointing.. I will start with the + and then list the - of the trips. CHECK IN - In Seattle was great, no issues, PRINCESS' policy of allowing passengers to bring aboard their own Wines is a great plus. Each passenger gets (1) one 750ml bottle without corkage fee, and ...

This was our first time on the Crown Princess. Our destination was Alaska - the Inside Passage. We flew into Seattle on embarkation day and utilized the transfer from the airport to the ship. It was somewhat chaotic with all the buses that needed to be loaded but we were glad that we didn't have to handle the luggage. Check in was easy at the Port considering the number of people that were ...

Second time on Crown, only OK ship now

Why did we take this cruise? 1. Window cabin was only about $40 more than the cheapest interior. 2. Wanted to see the glaciers, 3. Needed to burn some leave, and 4. Crown was a decent ship the last time we sailed on her. Boarding and Disembarking - Only have Los Angeles and Seattle to compare with, but while LA was a shorter drive from the airport, Seattle was a much smoother boarding ...
