This is the second time that my husband and I cruised Alaska in order to accompany my mother and sister who are visiting us from China. Before our cruise, we thought we would not have much to see at the ports Grand Princess would dock. But it turns out that we visited those ports of call from a perspective different than that of our previous Alaska cruise, mainly thanks to the Alaskan Port Talk Ann Carroll Burgess gave before we approached the first port. Ann truly highlighted each port from the passenger's viewpoint. By contrast, the previous cruises we had typically focused more on marketing their shore excursions than providing what-to-see information.

Another aspect of Grand Princess that impresses us is its taste in its entertainment programming. Like most other cruises we had, it provides comedian shows, singing and dancing performances, etc. Unlike some other cruises, the entertainment Grand Princess offers always shows a healthy and good taste.

In addition, Grand Princess did not do daily tower folding in staterooms and short entertainment in the dining room, Instead it provided a display and demo of power folding on one of the sea days and had a parade of cooks and waiters at our last dinner on ship. This is an excellent practice in our opinion so that all the service personnel can focus on their work without being distracted from other activities on a daily basis.

All in all, we are very satisfied with our Alaska cruise with Grand Princess and shall definitely cruise again with her in the future.
