Review summary

I have been dreaming about taking an Alaskan cruise for nearly 40 years. I knew I wanted to go on Princess Cruises. The experience was beyond my wildest imagination! I've never been so relaxed and yet energized at the same time!

Ports of call

Cruise Hubbard Glacier

Literally awe inspiring. The captain pivoting the ship so everyone could get a good view was unexpected and incredibly thoughtful!

Cruise Glacier Bay

Having the park rangers on board to present and then narrate what we were seeing added to the experience exponentially.

We did the Mendenhall Glacier experience through Princess. An incredible day and a great amount of time at the glacier to enjoy and explore.

Ketchikan, Alaska

We visited Totem Bight State Park & the Lumberjack Show as part of a Princess excursion. Once again the guide at the park was friendly and super-informative. The show was high energy and we learned a lot about the lumber industry as well!

We were truly surprised how easy disembarking and getting our luggage was. SO glad we got the transfer to the airport through Princess!
