Review summary

The Alaska scenery is the only thing that saved this cruise.  Princess was a huge disappointment.  Our trio for 4 totaled  $12,000 including excursions and airfare.  The first night a room steward removed an expensive personal item from our room  and stated that it was trash and we had thrown it away.  They were not even courteous enough to move this person away from our rooms so we spent the remainder of our trip cleaning and straightening our own rooms.  The food was mediocre at best and was never hot.  I have cruised many times on multiple cruise lines including: Carnival, NCL, and Royal Caribbean.  This cruise line was the most disappointing by far.  I would recommend Alaska, but on Holland America or another cruise line.
