Island Princess

7 Night Voyage Of The Glaciers Southbound (Anchorage To Vancouver)

Sail date: May 17, 2017

Ship: Island Princess

Cabin type: Oceanview

Cabin number: P630

Traveled as: Couple

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Review summary

Favorite - Train excursion on White Pass Train from Skagway was very scenic.

Needs improvement - Food quality; has deteriorated from previous Princess cruise of few years ago; entertainment had high points and some mediocre (the musical performances of Encore and Bayou Nights was very good while the Billy Joel impersonator was pathetic.)

Completely unacceptable - The disembarkation process in Vancouver was a failure. We (along with others) missed our flights. From the time we got off the ship until we boarded the Princess arranged transfers (busses) was over 90 minutes - just standing in line.
