Off the Beaten Path Cruisetour, with SouthBound Voyage of the Glaciers Cruise
"I had a wonderful two week vacation in Alaska. Reading some of the reviews, I did feel some trepidation, but it was unfounded. I think some people aren’t happy if they don’t have something to complain about...."Read More

I just really have always wanted to take an Alaskan cruise. The Coral Princess in September was a wonderful experience. The crowds were smaller and the weather was just about perfect. There was not a mosquito to be found. The shore excursions were first rate. The stops in Juneau, Ketchikan and Skagway offered a variety of experiences. There was plenty of time for shopping and exploring even with ...

The cruise was awesome. All of the staff we encountered were very pleasant except for one and I chalk that up for just having a bad day. We all of them occasionally. The reason I say this is, every time we saw this person after the "not so good" day, they were always in a pleasant professional mood. Even though Princess states the Coral was completely refurbished a few years ago - it really is ...

Getting to Alaska Our flight to Seattle was on a Virgin Airlines Boeing 787 in Economy. We had looked to upgrade to Premium Economy but the price was prohibitive. It was a good flight with decent food and great cabin crew. Immigration at Seattle Airport was a nightmare, taking an hour to actually get into the immigration hall and another hour to get seen. The immigration official was very ...

We went on this very 1st cruise as a family (2 parents in their 50's & 3 adult children in their 20's in a separate room). I picked this ship and itinerary after hours of researching the best option for us. I knew I really wanted to be on a smallish ship that could get close to Hubbard Glacier and take us thru Granite Bay (Captain Todd McBain did a fantastic job getting us within 1/4 mile to ...

In comparison to other cruises that we have taken, there were some obvious similarities as well as differences. Some services were great, some weren't. I will break it down (We took 7 day cruise with Coral Princess from Whittier to Vancouver). Embarkation/ Disembarkation: We boarded from Whittier, Alaska which is a fairly small port. Ours was the only ship. Luggage drop off and check in was ...

We did the 7 day land & 7 day cruise & 3 day Vancouver Cruisetour! We did the land first so we could see the interior of Alaska first. The scenery is breathtaking!!! One of the highlights was taking the tour boat out of Homer. Great scenery & saw a lot of wildlife. Saw glaciers up close & glacier calving up close & the scenery was OUTSTANDING. Our tour director on land was outstanding. He provided ...

Amazing Cruise From Whittier, Alaska to Vancouver

We chose this cruise ship because it sails along the inside passage in Alaska, and it is the only ship that has the permission to approach glaciers. The weather was not cooperative, yet we still got to see the beauty of Alaska. In terms of the ship itself. The embarkation and disembarkation was smooth, including all disembarkations for daily visits. The ship is not overly large, which is a ...

The food was never warm and not very good. Our steward was very friendly. The ship itself was not the cleaness. Poor entertainment 2 nights were ok. Not much to really do as we had sailed on Royal Caribbien and it was clean, good food, and great entertainment.. We loved Alaska but the ground tour the food was very expensive. If recommending a cruise line to Alaska I would not ...

Booked 2 mini-suites thru travel agent. We also did the land portion in Fairbanks. Excellent sight-seeing and food/drink service on the Princess train to Whittier. Good balcony spaces (port side - land view headed south) and comfy beds. Food and entertainment onboard decent but didn't sample all possibilities. "Sanctuary" section highly recommended - free, but book onboard for luxury AM or PM ...
