7 Night Alaska Voyage Of The Glaciers Southbound (Whittier To Vancouver)
Sail Date: June 08, 2009
Ship: Coral Princess
Cabin Type: Balcony
Reviewed: 8 years ago

This was our sixth cruise and our first on Princess. We had a wonderful overall experience. Highlights were the excellent chef, the naturalist who gave continuous commentary and the breathtaking scenery. Princess is a little more low keyed than other lines - fewer public announcents and activity by the pool. We were very pleased.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Superb in every venue. We didn't even need to try the specialty restauants. There were a large number of healthy options - fresh, ripe fruit and not overcooked veggies, which is very rare on cruise ships. The baked goods were delicous. The cuisine was innovative and appealing.

The comics were fantastic. The ship switches half way with another ship, so there is variety. One Broadway-type show was very good and the other not so great.

Service and Staff

The dining room staff was excellent. The other service was fine.

Ship Quality

It wasn't the newest ship, but it was tastefully decorated and very well maintained.

Our balcony room was very well laid out. Our only complaint was the way too tiny shower stall.

The Mendenhall Glacier is a must. Many other passengers went whale watching and had a fantastic experience. There is not much going on in the town otherwise.
Don't Miss: Mendenhall glacier

Flightseeing is a must. Again, not much going on in this down. They had the best shopping for hand crafted jewelry and other items. We found the totem parks not that exciting.
Don't Miss: Flightseeing

We took a terrific free walking tour from the historic society. An excursion to Haines is highly recommended. There isn't enough in the town to keep you busy all day.
Don't Miss: An excursion to Haines.

Pros: Food, scenery and naturalist on Board.

Cons: Shower was extremely small and flooded bathroom.
