Good first cruise-- we went to Prince Rupert instead of Juneau by bayareaxplant

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Island Princess / Destination: U.S. - Pacific, Northwest

I had a good first cruise experience. I found it comfortable, as I was traveling by myself. I booked the cruise for the wildlife viewing and First Nations art and was not disappointed. The ship could not make it to Juneau because of propulsion issues and substituted in Prince Rupert in northern British Columbia. Internet worked well enough to stream Youtube. Specialty coffees were good. Chocolates at bedtime were a nice touch.

Disrupted itinerary by whisperbell

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Island Princess / Destination: U.S. - Pacific, Northwest

Left port 11+ hours late due to propulsion motor problem and changed itinerary from Juneau to Prince Rupert B C ...not much to do in this port. Greater compensation for changed itinerary ..

Not so Alaskan by DKKK

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Island Princess / Destination: U.S. - Pacific, Northwest

The ship left port 11 hours late due to maintenance, because of late departure Juneau was cut from itinerary. I do not think we were fairly compensated for loss of the opportunity to visit Juneau. The cruise was sold as an Alaskan Sampler , but we spent very little time in Alaska , seems a little misleading. I don’t plan on using Princess in the future.

Disappointing by firstglacier

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Island Princess / Destination: U.S. - Pacific, Northwest

We had been planning this cruise for a year and the excursions we planned on taking were extremely important to us. We felt this was a once in a lifetime vacation. The cruise would have been fine if we had been able to do what we had planned. This has colored our impression of the cruise line and the handling of this incident.

Not recommended by Sebas1975

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Island Princess

Good food, nice cabin. We had many services issues. They always want you to buy something. We had an onboard credit issue that is still not resolved after the cruise. Their favorite answer....there is nothing we can do😠

Great views by jkit1947

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Island Princess / Destination: Alaska - Gulf of Alaska

We were with 12 people and 11 got sick. My husband is still sick. The last night my salmon dinner was under cooked and we felt rushed at dinner. The other people we were with who got salmon also was under cooked. The scenery was the best part of the whole trip. All in all I am glad we went.

Blessed with perfect weather. by 2BQUICK

Our group was made up of cousins. We had fun visiting, eating, gambling, dancing, singing old songs and buying jewelry. Life was good onboard. We will do it again.

Hats off to princess. Things could not have been better organized. Everything like clockwork, from luggage to accommodations to excursions.

14 days round trip from Vancouver..it was ok by LSATX

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Island Princess

I was expected a better experience with Princess than I experienced on other cruise lines and based on my past Princess cruise. This was not anything outstanding.

Good Trip by BigDenMD

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Island Princess / Destination: Alaska - Gulf of Alaska

First time for us to Alaska. We will go back! Mountains and rivers and views are spectacular. I wish the food was a little better. Contrary to some reviews I've read i thought the staff were good. You always get some who could be better but they are humans with their own personality.

Terrific Cruise! by seasickswede

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Island Princess / Destination: Alaska - Gulf of Alaska

I tend to get very seasick and had no problem, so this was great for me. I used the seabands on the wrists for the first day at sea and otherwise was fine. We went towards the end of the season so we did not see very much ocean wildlife from the ship, as I had hoped we would. The cruise ship and staff were excellent - it was all in all a wonderful cruise.

Awesome and disappointing! by robinscruise2106

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Island Princess

If you want a good deal, this is the cruise for you. Just don't expect Princess food to be top quality. Cutbacks have lowered their brand for sure. It is a nice ship. Comfortable rooms. Great staff. Well laid out.

Alaska Cruise by CLFreis

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Island Princess

Bucket list cruise. Wanted to see Alaska for a long time and finally did it. Had great weather on the cruise portion. Had a couple of days of rain on the land portion which made us miss a view of Mt. Denali, but was still worthwhile. The bus tour on land was very nice thanks mostly to our driver and guide, Cal. He was fantastic! Always a smile and an upbeat mood. Giving us useful info throughout the trip. The bus ride was nice as well since our group of 6 had the whole back section. Each of us had our own seat which made the trip more enjoyable and comfortable. We had plenty of time at each stop. On the cruise the towns were nice, but the highlight was getting up close to the glaciers. Beautiful! I did the rock climbing in Skagway and that was the most unusual and fun excursion on the trip. Best food I’ve had on a cruise, but then again I’ve only been on Carnival until now.

Best Anniversary EVER by theresag063

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Island Princess / Destination: Alaska - Gulf of Alaska

Loved this trip. Nothing is ever perfect, but I would sail Princess and this ship again. However, I’d also consider choosing a value-priced cruise, in order to return sooner to Alaska!

The glaciers are a must see!! by Parisfrance

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Island Princess / Destination: Alaska - Gulf of Alaska

We had a great time and recommend this cruise. The Glaciers are receding so it was good to see them now. Island Princess is a nice, smaller ship.
