June 2015 - Crown Princess to Alaska - Inside Passage
The Crown Princess is attractive and well outfitted. We were in a less expensive inner cabin, which was roomy enough and comfortable. Food options were plentiful and varied.
The staff was attentive, friendly, and constantly available. We needed nothing that we were not offered.
We were just a bit disappointed in the taste of the food served in the restaurants. Although the preparation was attractive it was not especially well seasoned or of the highest quality. This was a common observation of those in our party. However, if your kitchen is preparing food for 3,000, I'm sure there are some enormous challenges.
The captain's excursion into Tracy Arm for a view of the Sawyer Glacier was magnificent. It was enlightening and entertaining to see how a thousand-foot vessel can turn on its own axis in a narrow channel.
Overall - Good cruise. Plenty to see, relaxing, good shore options.
