Review summary

Alaska is a must do. Apparently people talk about it all the time. Only way to truly see it is on a cruisetour. This multi-transport-mode method is all-encompassing and satisfies the deepest wanderlust. Do it. There is no try.

Embarkation

Arrived in Vancouver and waited a little while then boarded with no issues

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Excellent food throughout - caught a fish on an excursion and had it prepared for dinner that night. It was an experience I'll never forget.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
For me, I just wanted to relax, so I'm not into a bunch of activities like water slides etc. Princess isn't known for this anyways.

Entertainment

5 out of 5
Great shows - nothing to say I didn't like

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
As always, the staff on board were excellent! I am hooked on MDR eating because of it.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
It's big and holds people. Princess isn't designed for the partiers or the kids.

Love Alaska. All the ports are very touristy. If you don't like the excursions, just walk around the port and explore. Super safe.
