Review SummaryI had a third party protection system on my credit cards and when it appeared my cards jumped from Ohio to Alaska the protection kicked in. When my excursion charges couldn't be charged to the credit card I offered my debit card, which by the way, cruise lines do not like and will not use to secure and use the on ship cashless system. Here I am no credit card-no contact info for the credit card security system (that was my fault) and I was being told my debit card wasn't their favorite choose of payment. I was then told-"If your account is paid in full when we get to port you and your guest cannot disembark!" I was in what I started calling "Ship Jail". I could wander all areas of the ship but I couldn't leave the ship until my debt was cleared. My family and I was falsely imprisoned by Priness Cruise Lines! I was having them use my debit card to clear all charges on my account. But I was having to get out of bed in the middle of the night (after midnight) to make sure my accounts were clear so My family could travel ashore in ports of call!
Ports of Call
Don't Miss: I enjoyed the Governor's mansion.
Don't Miss: The tour guide named Bruce is a must if you make it to Skagway!
Don't Miss: We did the hydro-plane tour. Very beautiful! Well worth the money!
Pros: Alaska & its people are great!
Cons: The cruise line tries to falsely imprison people!
