the trip was an excellent trip.  however, the room was much smaller than we thought.  the bed arrangements were bad.  made the room looks even smaller than the inside cabin.  very disappoint with the size of the room.  however, balcony view is always a big plus  .  wonderful view and fresh air.

FOOD WAS OK BUT NOT GREAT

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

FOOD WAS OK BUT NOT GREAT. RICE WAS OVER COOKED, PRIME RIB HAD FUNNY TASTE, BEEF GENERALLY WAS NOT BAD, BUT CERTAINLY NOT GREAT LIKE OTHER CRUISE LINES WE HAVE BEEN ON.

CASINO WAS WORST WE HAVE BEEN IN.  NO POINTS OR FREE DRINKS, NO PRIZES FOR TIME SPENT. PLAYERS CLUB SUCKS!

 

STAFF WAS VERY NICE AND FREINDLY.

 

SHOWS WERE VERY ENTERTAINING.

SHIP VERY TIRED.

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We've been on this Ship before, but now its very old and tired and worn out.

 

We will never go on this Ship again, unless its free.

 

Food line ups where incredible and almost a fight to get a seat to eat. It was literally a fight to get your food and sit down.

 

After spending so much money for a great vacation, we where disappointed.

Being our first didn't know what to expect, very impressed by the organization, professionalism and curtesy of crew, fantastic amenities and entertainment. Will definitely do more cruises after this experience.

10 days on our cruise was great. The food was good, the mini suite was somewhat clean. The balcony was beautiful but the furniture was dirty.  Room service never got our order wrong.  Bathtub still had hair in it from the previous guests.  Stain on the carpet.  Couch needed to be thrown out.  The sip and sail package was fabulous.  I highly recommend it only if you get it for free.  We went with 3 other couples and it the bar was our meeting place.  Almost like Cheers.  Great experience.  The speciality restaurants were good.  I don't recommend the Crab Shack.  I think it's a rip off.  My husband got sick and was in his room 2.5 days of our 10 day cruise.  The nurse was very nice.  Did you know that when you pay the the protection plan you still have to pay for the upfront costs and then submit to your insurance and then what your insurance won't pay that insurance comes into play.  Totally did not understand that and will not pay for that again.  Your decision.  Our travel agent knew that my husband got sick and he never called to find out about him.  I have sent him a lot of business.  Customer service isn't what it used to be.  Book directly with Princess. Grand Princess needs some up dating.  Jesse, Manu and joy are the best bar tenders .  Make sure you see them on your cruise.

We had a wonderful time.  We were always treated kindly by friendly personnel.  We were extremely impressed with how friendly and enthusiastic all the cruise line's employees were. We were expecting great sites, great food, and good shows, but we really impressed with how we were treated.

Trip started May 8, 2017. We arrived in San Francisco 3 days before trip to be able to enjoy the city and do some sightseeing as well. Good decision, we had. Beautiful weather and got to see so many sights. Boarded the ship on Monday without delay. We had been to Alaska before but had not stopped in Skagway. It is a must. We did the train ride and well worth the price not expensive at all. Juneau was awesome as well we did the tram up the mountain. Easy walk from port and you can buy tickets there and also offer military discounts in most of the Juneau stores. The Glacier Bay is a sight you'll never forget. Ketchikan was nice as well. Make sure you grab one of the coupon books available at most stores with great discounts. This is a cruise that should be in everyone's bucket list😎

Leaving out of SF and returning home to SF.was great. We don't like to fly anymore. We seem to enjoy everything about Princess Cruises. Was nice to get sip and sale on this trip. Hope to check out another trip with sip and sale.

Room service coffee is the only good complimentary coffee (much better than in the dining room or buffet). De-caf coffee is not available in the bars. The fitness Center is well equipped. There is no dedicated outdoor track for running / walking. Pizzeria pizza is outstanding.

If you book on The Grand Princess Alaskan cruise definitely book a balcony. If your budget doesn't allow for a balcony - the morning of the Glaciers go up to the aft 16 floor and sitting in the hot tub what an amazing sight!

We were happy to have booked two balcony rooms - trying to squeeze a family of four into one cabin would be very tough unless your kids are young.
