Alaska Inside Passage with Glacier Bay
Grand Princess Cruise Review to Alaska - Inside Passage
Review summaryThis is a grand size cruise ship which desires the name Grand Princess; excellent Dining food and Sabatini's Italian Dining of a six course meal for $29 which is really under price for a grand, exceptional meal with a very relaxing atmosphere. Now the Coffee card is on your room key so therefore, the Coffee punch card is not offered no longer which you really can not keep up with your 15 speciality coffees you paid for. I rather have the Coffee Punch Card which I can also use on future cruises and see my uses. This is what I considered "Nickle and Diming" your cruise guest. Also, the Photo Package is $249 for all of your photos and everyone in your state room and you receive a i free Princess USB to keep all of your photos on, however, I found out that the Photo Package was $239 and $10 for the Princess USB which it was not free, again "Nickle and Diming" your guest which catching up to the other Cruise Companies.

Crooners Martini Bar
A bar that you can get non alcoholic drinks, mix drinks, using a mixer drinks. A lovely location and the folks are having fun and listening to live music.
The $239 fee is a great price for the Photo Package for everyone in the stateroom of 3 person and up to get their photo taken everywhere on the ship, embankment ports of cities and special photo spots off the ship, formal nights at all the different backgrounds being offered.
Some people are not honest and they know of tricks to place their expenses on cruise guest rooms by written down another guest room number and signature. This happen to me and the Passenger Services should me the receipt and I told them it was not my signature and it was removed from my expense account. Please go over your expense account 2 days before departure and the early morning of departure which I found this mistake.
Movies Under The Stars
Show movies on the 14 and 15 floor during the day and night. Using pool loungers chairs to relax in and at night they offer you a blanket to snuggle with when watching a movie under the stars.
Service and Staff
