Princess is the right cruise line

Sail Date: July 13, 2016

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

We are not fond of cruising, but we have no complaints about the Island Princess with 2200 passengers.  It was redecorated May 2015 and was very well kept and clean. The food was fantastic- such variety with an abundance of fruit, veggies, meats, fresh breads and desserts to gain 6 pounds on!  The crew of 900 were attentive and friendly.

We were up close to only one glacier, which calved into the sea...Margery Glacier was very beautiful.  We took the train and bus combo through Frontier Tours in Skagway, which we would highly recommend. 

Cabin / Stateroom
The cabin was larger than we expected. If we had the choice again, we would chose a room closer to the front of the ship to make it handier to the elevators for dining and the theater. The buffet dining and 2 nice pool areas with reclining deck chairs were on the 14th deck.

Tip

Traveling Northbound could be even better than Southbound because your cruise would end with the tall mountains and glaciers. Ketchikan was our least favorite excursion. However there is a natural fish ladder, close to the Lumberjack Show, where salmon are going up stream in July and August.
