food atrocious; room filthy; with "guarenteed gratuities" service MARGINAL. 50% with poor attitudes.


entertainment was excellent and logistics outstanding.


major complaint----filthy room and terrible food. even pizza tasted like cardboard, and HORIZON----


glorified "cafeteria."


Tables cleaned with same dirty towel for multiple meals---multiple tables.  Health nightmare in the wings.


very poor value versus other cruise lines.  best description----"cattle car" experience.


Alaska beautiful----Princess experience----"a disaster." AND never again!
