Golden Princess Alaska Cruise

Sail Date: June 11, 2015

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

I would recommend this cruise as a good opportunity to explore the Alaska's beauties.

The embankment and disbarment were very good. The departure from San Fran was delayed for three hours without any explanations from the captain or crew. As a result we came to the first port too late for visiting. Some groups returned to the boat around 9 PM. If it was an emergency it should be explained to avoid any frustrations and make us more comfortable due to missing some attractions.

The room attendant was good and room was always clean. The ship is old and the toilet smell when passing the corridor was significant and unpleasant. It should be handled somehow. The carpet should be replaced or cleaned up; there are spots everywhere.

The pastry chief is very good; the chocolate journey is great. All desserts are very testy during the lunch and dinner time.

In whole, food definitely could be better in variety and quality. All waiters and assistance waiters are working hard to make us happy. Thanks for that.

We have a great time; the weather was warm and sunny. This is the additional bonus for Alaska cruising.

My great thanks to my travel agent Sheri Zawislak for organizing my birthday's celebration in Sabatini restraint!

Cruise Tracy Arm Fjord, Alaska
the ship was very close to the shore; if you can have a balcony you'll have a great exploration

For example: Make special dinner reservations first thing after boarding ship at the service desk as they fill up fast. Dont`t worry about getting familair with the ship right off, that`s part of the fun of discovery while at sea.
