Enjoyable trip overall.  A few poor experiences based on the lack of help provided to resolve several issues with three authorization holds deducted from my credit card acct for one transaction. Unhappy in dealing w/Princess, however, the beauty of the places we visited overshadow it all.

Cabin / Stateroom
Very nice. Only complaint was the strong paint odor coming from next door to my room somewhere. It was very strong and bothersome. Had to leave the room.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Very upset with the disembarkation experience surrounding the hiccups/errors with my onboard account. Next time I will only use cash to fund it.
Ship Quality
This ship is beautiful. Lots of bad or strong odors. Perhaps from the water and the paint.
Destinations and Excursions
Loved, loved, loved visiting Alaska. Well worth the weather, which wasn't actually too bad. Excursions were worth it. We did Mendenhall Glacier and Glacier Gardens, also Klondike summit. Had one planned for Victoria, Canada but Canada was cancelled due to strong winds.
Onboard Activities
Really enjoyed the onboard activities, esp The voice and comedian Carlos Oscar.
Service and Staff
Room attendant and dining staff were wonderful.
Food and Dining
The dining experience was better than the buffet. Buffet was better on Carnival. No real meal options on the menu for buffet.
