Review summary

We went to celebrate our 20th anniversary and we had the time of our lives!! it's like it's a 5 star hotel that follows you around to all these cities, making you feel pampered and well taken cared off. Princess cruises really did an amazing job and we definitely want to go back!

Embarkation

Food and Dining

omg, the food was non-stop! the everday buffet was well stocked, but the dinners were the best!! one night was all you could eat beef wellington and lobster! Also tried the Crown Grill---WOW! totally worth the $29!! Also did an Ultimate Balconey Dinner & Breakfast--amazing!!

It wasn't the newest ship, but didn't feel old either. They layout is nice. It was very very clean

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
It was bigger than I thought, but not by much. We stayed at the back of the ship so the view was amazing to wake up to. I would buy a balconey next time however.

Ship tip

Get ready to eat amazing food, see the most beautiful scenery, and be treated like a prince!!

Seattle, Washington

This was the first time to this city and I fell in love with it!

Ketchikan, Alaska

This was my favorite port. We did the Saxmon Village and city tour. Our tour guide was excellent, and tried to make sure we saw wildlife. She also explained the village really well.

Juneau, Alaska

Best excursion of the trip! Took a helicopter to mendenhall glacier and drank glacier water!! Then went to this really nice camp and had a salmon bake.

Skagway, Alaska

4 out of 5
this port is nice, but not as exciting as the other ports. Took a bus up rail up the White Pass & Yukon trail and took the train down...Amazing amazing views! Went to a salmon bake at Liarsville. Such a great big production and beautiful camp. They just need a funnier script writer--jokes were something from a 70's sitcom :\

Victoria, British Columbia

You dock at night and only have a few hours, so you can't really see the city views and don't have enough time to get to know the city.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
So smooth and easy!! We were worried bc we docked at 7am but had a flight at 10:30am so we did self help. It went so easy we got to the airport by 8:30am!
