This cruise was chosen because the Inside Passage cruise has been a bucket list item for many years. It totally exceeded our expectations. The Island Princess was extremely accommodating with great passenger to ...

The love boat didn't wow us.

Overall we enjoyed the cruise. Some solid entertainment, however timing was off based on your dinner seating. The food bland and unexciting. The lounge, bar and restaurant staff could not produce drinks that ...

It was.... okay at best.

We choose this particular cruise because we wanted to see Alaska as late in the season as possible. We hoped to see the Northern Lights and our best chance was mid- September. We spent 11 days on land, followed by a ...
