Over all the trip was good. Except for the following
Princess Lodge in Fairbanks dinning room was not up to my standards either in food or service.
Princess Denali was beautiful, upon returning from tour we had 1 hr to find something to eat. Impossible not enough places to get food and they were all slammed.
As for the ship. Very clean and nice. Showers were the smallest I have ever seen.
The entertainment was poor. Only the first comedian and the last show were worth going to.
The food was not good. As was expressed by more than one other person not in our group. Selection in buffet was poor. And dinning room selection was so, so.
Asked for drawn butter and was told only on lobster night. We had a hard time getting seating for our group. We never really understood their system. First we were told no then another gentleman steeped in and told them to seat us a certain table. Perhaps they were just an untrained crew. While they were pleasant we fould the waiters on Royal Caribbean heads above them. Never been on ship where some sort of food was not available 24hrs.
We enjoyed all the excursions . The sea plane, riverboat in Fairbanks, the White Pass train ride were our favorites. Really not sure I would recommend Princess would tell them to look at other options.
