10 Night Alaska Inside Passage With Glacier Bay (San Francisco Roundtrip)
Sail Date: June 20, 2016
Ship: Grand Princess
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: L255
Traveled As: Large Group
Reviewed: 1 year ago

I loved being with family, seeing new sights, I have always wanted to go to Alaska. The cruise was wonderful but the cruise does not take you to the real Alaska. It is way commercialized and way to many none native Alaskan or American shops in the towns. Way to many people in the towns at one time.


I didn't like all the sale pitches I got while on the ship. I went on a cruise to get away from all that. Money Money Money I figure I spent enough just to get on the ship I didn't want to spend anymore on stuff. 


When I go to Alaska again I'm going to drive to the real Alaska.

Beautiful, to bad we couldn't have spend more time there.
3 out of 5
To crowded when 5 ships are in port at the same time. Way to commercialized for me, to many none native Alaskan or American shop owners, very disappointing.
3 out of 5
To crowded not enough time on excursion to see all of the Butchard Garden and not enough time in Butterfly World. To many people.
