This was our fourth cruise and our first since 2004, and our first on Princess (although two prior cruises were with its parent, Carnival). TRANSFER TO SHIP We opted for the transfer to the ship from downtown Anchorage, which was handled really well. We arrived at 10 AM for a noon transfer, and they were already open and checked us in and took our bags in no time flat. We could even ...

Lovely itinerary, but the ship needs maintenance...

We've cruised with Crystal before and have high expectations for this cruise line. The checkin and buses from downtown to Whittier was very confusing and a big mess, with no one really seeming to know what was happening, but the buses arrived and we all got to the port eventually (our group was split over 3 buses). Cabins were ready early so we were able to unpack before dinner, which you ...

This was the Alaskan cruise we had been talking about taking for some time. First a 7 day cruise tour and then the cruise. Land tour was great except for too many long bus rides. Every day or every other day we were getting up very early to put the luggage out and get on the bus. The scenery was great. Got to the ship only to be told that we couldn't fly home from Vancouver because we had passport ...

Loved the cruise however this ship has seen better days. There are maintenance issues with sewer smells in the stairwells, tattered furniture in public areas and bathrooms that have holes in the doors, with lots of rust all around. Our Balcony cabin was nice and our steward was very attentive. Service was to be expected in the dinning room but nothing above and beyond. Entertainment was just ok ...

Travel Agent suggested it because Princess handles everything in Alaska for tours. Everything well handled. Non of the on board activity suited us, but we did use the free library. We are over 60 but not interested in shows, casinos, playing games. Recommend constant check of on ship credits from customer service - if you don't pay gratuity (approx $13.80 for each meal) ahead is taken ...

Overall I was disappointed with the service we received. From everything I had heard and read I was expecting better service. I felt you are constantly nickel and dimed. we also had an unfortunate incident, we paid for the special coffee card, planning on having cappochino coffees through out the week. First day at sea we had our first cup. Terrible, 3 times they tried to remake it. When we asked ...

My DH and I chose the Star Princess because of the timing of the cruise. This was our first cruise and we wanted a very special one. We were going to renew our vows while in Alaska and splurged all the way, The Star Pro: The Star is warm and charming. It is well maintained and clean. Con: The ship is dated with lots of gold decor. Suite C749 Pro: We chose suite C749 because we ...

We did the pre tour of Alaska first and joined the ship in Whittier. Princess were well organised on the tour and handled our luggage well. The embarkation process was smooth and quick. Luggage waiting on board and we went straight to lunch before exploring. Cabins were comfortable, great walk in wardrobe with plenty of hangers. Ship was quite easy to get around, but it did have some ...

We chose to go on the Coral Princess as the ports were what we wanted and the prices better than the other ships leaving the same time. This was our first Princess cruise and with the exception of another (Ruby Princess that followed) will be our last. Most of our fellow passengers were content so it must be my wife and I that did not have a wonderful experience. Perhaps we were expecting a ...

This was our third time on a Princess Cruise ship and our 21st cruise so far. The Coral Princess was a bit disappointing because of its “tired” look and feel in about 60% of the ship. The only reason we choose Princess for this cruise was the itinerary and the fact that our good friends were also joining their children who took a similar cruise on their honeymoon 10 years ago. The good parts ...
