Alaskan Cruise

Sail Date: August 24, 2016

Reviewed: 9 months ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

We enjoyed our Alaska cruise and the Island Princess.  We had spent 7 independent days touring Alaska by rental car so it was very relaxing to leave the details to the Island Princess.  I enjoyed the 2 sea days at the start of the cruise touring Hubbard Glacier and Glacier Bay...but then came 3 hectic days in ports. Fun but tiring and the evening activities after port days seemed diminished.

Cabin / Stateroom
Nice size windows for ocean-view cabin. Not as clean as I would like-carpet was really grubby around the edges. Smallest bathroom we have every had on any cruise line. We had to have a "plan" to get a shower.
