For such a large ship it felt crowded.

7 Night Alaska Inside Passage With Glacier Bay (Seattle Roundtrip)
Sail Date: June 04, 2016
Ship: Crown Princess
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: L230
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 1 year ago

We thoroughly enjoyed the White Pass train ride, and Glacier Bay was beautiful.  The ship was difficult to navigate with a cane, and there were curves everywhere in the dining areas making walking with a spouse difficult.  We were very surprised at the aggressiveness of some of the foreign passengers who broke in line, jumped ahead of us, and blocked the aisles.  The staff were friendly, and helpful when asked.

Food and Dining

Lines were hard to navigate with all the curves and one entry and one exit. Only had condiments on table for two meals the whole week. Had to ask for salt/pepper, continuously.

Ship Quality

Ship is showing its age in carpet, doorways, and flooring. Was dark to us. Walls are dark wood paneling, and ceilings were so low in places so as to feel claustrophobic. I could touch the ceilings in many of the ships common areas.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Comforter was torn/dirty, Was no top sheets. Had to flush the toilet several times to remove waste. Sliding door was difficult to open when cold, but finally figured out a trick to sliding it back easier. Carpet looked faded and matted in high traffic areas, especially out of bath, and inside the door to balcony.

Ship Tip

Make sure you know which dining room you are assigned, or where you should eat. The Horizon was a nightmare.

Forget the Salmon Bake, the food was cold, and the salmon was full of bones.

Take the White Pass train ride, it was amazing.

Cruise Glacier Bay

Bring a good telephoto lens for your camera, and keep the camera ready for a calving--they happen at any moment of time. The whales dive so quickly it is almost impossible to catch them on camera.

The city tour was a bust, however the totems were neat to see and hear a couple of the stories behind them. Could not enter the carving area.

Four hours to get off the ship and visit the town after dark is hard for older folks. Just not our thing.
