I was so busy all the time. I can't wait to get all my pictures so I can relive the many, many memories I will have. I enjoyed the staff and felt so pampered. I especially will remember our 2 waiters and the head waiter who were so accommodating and friendly.

Half ass Alaska cruise

Everyone we talked to on board was dissatisfied with the cruise in several ways, several said they would never be back, some said that since they last cruised it had gone down a lot. Some said that they thought Princess had come down to the carnival level of cruise ship. We found not one person who was even just happy with their cruise. Does not bode well for Princess in the future if they wish to maintain that superior image they have enjoyed in the past. We will try another line next year when we cruise again

7 day Alaska Cruise

Family cruise to Alaska. We had fun at all ports except Victoria due to the late arrival. The dining was disappointing, especially the evening we ate at Share (don't waste your money). I had a big issue with the amount of up selling that was done, especially during the first two days: Drink packages, Three upcharge dining options, Duty free shops, wine tastings. During dinner one evening I had to fend off a gentleman selling a $25 wine tasting the next evening (twice during the same dinner).

Had a wonderful time and my granddaughter created many fantastic memories that she will be able to share with family and friends for many years. Plus it gave us time to fortify our relationship.

Really the main thing I want to convey is my gratitude for the service from Mr. Edgar Cruz. He is the only staff member my husband and I insisted on getting a name from so we could compliment him in out cruise review. Really, this man is phenomenal.

Don't go on their ships.

Don't worry if you don't have a tuxedo for formal nights. Many men were wearing suits and ties. The soft drink package is worth the price if you are a moderate Coke, Sprite, Diet Coke drinker. The future cruise deposit is a must if you think you might be cruising again with Princess in 2 years.

Bring a trench coat. It gets a bit windy, but do enjoy the space up top!
