Enjoyed the Cruise. Will do the same cruise again sometime. Easy to get away for a 3 night cruise. Airfare was a great price so I could go and enjoy Vancouver for the first time. Beautiful place ready to see it again.

Overall cruise was a great experience, the ship could have had more amenities or been more modern, but the staff and service was great and Alaska speaks for itself, just beautiful scenery.

Our first cruise, I was very skeptical, I didn't want to leave the ship. Food was bountiful and great, mush to do, and Alaska is amazing!!! We participated in many activities, never felt bored. The naturalist on board was excellent, very down to earth, who really seemed to enjoy teaching us.

Highly recommend a cruise to Alaska on the Island Princess. The Northbound route from Vancouver to Whittier was a good selection with increasingly more picturesque glaciers as we sailed north.

Choose the early dinner seating and ask to share table with at least 4 other guests. You will make new friends and spend the dining time sharing experiences. Take a shawl (or dress warmer) when dining. Don't miss any of the shows and get your seat 30 minutes early to be able to get a seat.

If you have a chance to meet the guys at the egg station... they will make you a great breakfast.
