June 2016 - Island Princess to Alaska - Gulf of Alaska
We were not satisfied with the 10 day land cruise package.
The tours provided little interest and for sure lacked of any wildlife. The scenery at times is nice but doesn't take your breath away. Accommodations are simple but adequate prices are high.
The balcony cabin on the Island Princess was ample and had good storage. Service was adequate but not at the level we have seen in other cruises. Nothing particularly impressive with the food at the buffet or the restaurant. The specialty restaurant Sabattine was worth the extra charge.
We got the impression that when the ship was designed they forgot about a casino and a gym. The casino is the size of a mid size living room and the gym is indoors with no windows looking out. Not what you expect in a modern ocean linner
The one outstanding portion was the shows. In particular On The Bayou very well done.
