May 2014 - Star Princess to Alaska - Inside Passage

Alaska Cruise on Star Princess

Overall I would rate this cruise as being superior to other cruise lines i have taken over the years. The food was very good and plenty of it. The staff were very helpful and respectful at all times. I found the cabin to have excellent layout with very efficient use of space.  A large closit with plenty of hangers was wonderful and nothing had to be left laying on the bed. In addition, the closet area had a nice rack of storage pockets with plenty of room for all the sweater and little things etc. The bathroom was also well laid out and a cut avove the competition.

  My only complaint was the very poor value for the Buschard Gadens shore excursion. The bus left for the Gardens 20 mins. late and after reaching the gardens we were told by the driver we had less than two hours to get back on the bus. I don't know what all the rush to get back to the ship was about, but we arrived back on the dock with 2 1/2 hours left befor sailing. My family spent almost $400 on this tour, only to have our day ruined by trying to run around the gardens, but sadly, we did not see much in the short time we were alloted. As a veteran of over 30 cruises, I have seen it all and would definately reccomend this cruise to anyone.

shamrocks1's Tips

Juneau, Alaska - Best view for picture taking from the top of Mt. Robert's tramway. Wonderful
Victoria, British Columbia - No enough time in port to properly see all the city has to offer. best bet is to take a downtowon tour of the "old" city.
Skagway, Alaska - Now you finally have the chance to travel the great White pass and Yukon highway up by bus and return be the train. You will take ten time to pictures you thought you would. And don't for get to take the dog sled ride for fun.
Ketchikan, Alaska - Don't you dare miss the lumberjack show, you may never get the chance again.
Star Princess Star Princess - To get around the crowding at dining on the 14th floor for breafast or lunch, just go relax in the main dining room and be served a wonder meal in a relaxing environment with fighting for a table on the 14th dining area.
