Awesome Alaska by lory465

overall, the cruise was as expected. Young children activities were lacking. Not enough for the 7 -11 year olds. Food was above average, service with Renaldo in the anytime dining was excellent. Ran out of soft serve chocolate mid cruise. 8 yr old unhappy. Not enough healthy food choices for kids.

Our Australian Cruise Review! We has a wonderful experience visiting Sydney for a few days before the cruise and an additional day after. by mrandmrshall

We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves on this cruise and would certainly take this trip again. The experience of engaging with others from anytime dining is always a plus when cruising, this was no exception. Our favorite Island was Lautoka 100%, a must visit by all.

The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly by ChefChris

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

What was good. The ports of call, the tours and the weather. The weather was perfect at every port. Juneau was raining in town, but NOT on the glacier where we were.  Skagway and Ketchikan was overcast, Victoria started off with a light mist and cleared by the time we were outside at the Sunken Garden. What was Bad. The service in the main dining rooms is UNTRAINED!  Except for ONE young lady (Anna from the Ukraine) orders were taken around the table.  Should be Ladies first.  Servers Consistently reached across in front of one guest to serve another.  Food was served from both sides.  Empty dishes were picked up the same.  Doesn't ANYONE Serve from the Right & Pick up from the Left anymore?  The wine cellar was out of numerous items on the list.  My wife never got her first choice wine. What was Ugly. NOTHING save AIR is included in the fare.  A 1/2 letter bottle of water is $2.00, as are sodas.  Wine is about double the retail cost.  GRATUITIES are Not Gratuitous, they are added to your account daily.  (For your convenience)  My dinner the first night was the Chef’s Award Winning Recipe of Pan Seared Salmon on a bed of Root Vegetables.  The salmon was WAY Passed done.

The wonders of Alaska as seen on Princess Cruises by ratnamunshi

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The cruise departed from San Francisco, our home and so it was very convenient to get to the port. The first couple of days were a little rocky but after that it was smooth sailing. The food was great and so was the service. We celebrated 2 birthdays and the cakes were amazingly cute with the princess logo. Overall, the entertainment variety was unique. We enjoyed all the excursions at the different ports and felt we had enough time after for shopping also. I would definitely recommend this cruise.

Promises not kept by rustifry

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

Princess Cruises promised one thing in their advertisement and delivered another.  We were not given the upgrade offered nor the onboard credit advertised, $300 per person ($100 for me only), Military credit $100 ($50 only for my son).  Mia with the pursers office did her best to resolve the matter, but to no avail.  The reason given by Princess, I booked through Cruises Only.  Therefore I will no longer be using Cruises Only or Princess.

The onboard and shore crews were very helpful.

The "all you can drink alcohol card" was an immense deal since it included water bottles and artisan coffees. As well as the "all you can drink card" for the youth since it included mocktails. Those cards saved us lots of money!

If you like coffee, sign up for the coffee card in the piazza!

Purchased the All-inclusive beverage card and it was great! Included wine, beer, cocktails, sodas and the specialty coffee's too! A bit pricey, but felt we got our monies worth!
