Our Princess Cruise was extremely well organized, from pickup at the airport in Vancouver to our departure at Anchorage airport. Princess employees were there every step of the way. Aboard ship, the employees were available to meet your every need, they were friendly and courteous. The food was excellent no matter where you chose to dine and activities were un-ending. There was something for everyone to do. The shore excursions were exactly as described. We saw whales as promised and the White Pass Railroad definately did not disappoint us; the Mendenhall glacier was very interesting as was Saxman Village. Glacier Bay and College Fjord were outstanding. We did, however, feel rushed at the salmon bakes (we went to two) and the meals were exactly the same. Overall, the trip itself was great. We did have one complaint and that was with Air Canada airlines. Our luggage was lost and the airport employees were very nonchalant and seemed not to care. We finally got our luggage two days later in Ketchikan. We were totally disappointed by Air Canada, one bag was so damaged that it will have to be replaced. Princess Cruises (who booked our flights) stayed in contact with Air Canada and kept us updated until our luggage was finally delivered. Other than that, we had a good time.

Pros: The service, the food, the activities and the excursions.

Cons: Air Canada flight and connecting flight to Vancouver, Canada
