July 2016 - Grand Princess to Alaska - Inside Passage
I love so much of the cruise. Every thing was wonderful, the staff so nice and I enjoyed every day either at see or at port.
The only things I would say need improvement are:
I felt the main shopping guy to be shady. At a princess store on shore we were looking for at a ring for my husband. The first guy at the gave a bid, then the manager gave the next which was lower. Then the princess cruise guy came out of nowhere to tell us how much he trusted the salesman and that he even bought a ring. He showed us what he was wearing it it was almost exact to the one we were looking at. Wow, what a coincidence!!
I then noticed He was never wearing that ring on any videos he was on nor when I'd see him around the boat. I asked him where his ring was and he gave me a pretty shifty response. It was clear he had only slipped it on that day to try to make a sale. That is the only time I felt icky about the princess business. Don't play games on your customers. We are smart enough to see through it.
