Review Summary

The ship was lovely, the staff very helpful and pleasant, and the scenery gorgeous despite showery weather. We highly recommend the Princess line, and enjoyed the itinerary. Tracy Arm was gorgeous, but it would have been nice to see glaciers up really close.

Cabin / Stateroom

We had a minisuite on the port side. It had a balcony and a lovely sitting area for reading and enjoying the scenery. It would have been nice to have DVD viewing capability in the stateroom, but that was not available.

Ports Of Call

Victoria, British Columbia

Victoria is a lovely city. The winetasting and chocolate tour we took was rather commercial. Not a real highlight.
