Room Type: Balcony

After 5 - 6 cruises on 4 different lines, we are ready to call Princess "best yet!" 


Loved the refined, rich looks of the Grand Princess. Believe the food experience to be the highest in quality we have experienced in our cruise experiences. Having a naturalist on board who could speak English and excite an audience while educating us was a great touch.


Sailing out of San Francisco was rewarding and special and the 10 days was just right for the cost. 


Alaska exceeded our expectation in every way possible. We WILL find a way to cruise back to see what we were unable to on this trip. For side trips, we consider the train ride a "must." Too, get on a glacier if you can - if not, just keep your eyes and ears peeled while in their neighborhood.


Glad we were allowed into the Tlingit's world. The native Alaskan story is something to take home and share.

Cabin / Stateroom Met all of our needs, with class.

Fisherman's wharf is fun, of course but discover The Presidio and the Disney Family Museum while there.
