Great trip by jfenchock

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

The cruise definitely met all of my expectations. I wish we would have had a little more time in Skagway and Juneau. We loved the trip

Excellent cruise to Alaska by TillECornhusker

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

I would sail on the Island Princess again. Excursion staff, food service staff, and cabin staff were amazingly good. Desk staff left a great deal to be desired. Not a great value, dollar for dollar; won't book balcony TBA again. Have had larger inside cabins. Marginalization of smokers still a sore spot; excuse of "worldwide trend" threadbare at best.

although traveled many miles, air, land and sea, it was well worth it. Alaska is a must do.

Excellent Alaskan cruise! by CRothert

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

This was a vacation we were looking forward to for many years. We really enjoyed all aspects of our trip and the staff made it even better. We really enjoyed the lodge in Dinali and wish we had one more night there. The train ride to Whittier was everything we thought it would be in more. What a great experience!

Eh - Ok cruise but nothing special except not many kids. by jjlane

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

Average cruise experience. Was expecting more since many people had told us I would feel like a Princess. Adult only area you must pay extra for. Did not know until we tried to go there. Very disappointed as we thought we'd be spending a good deal of our time there but we felt it should have been included - not MORE money! All in all - good time. Just don't go thinking it's going to be better than Carnival.

Alaska Cruise & land tour 2019 by skoolmom

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

This was a cruise and land tour. We started out in Fairbanks at the Princess Riverside Lodge. The lodge is very close to the airport and the Riverboat Discovery Cruise excursion. Highly recommend the Riverboat Excursion. Lunch is included and was very good. It is about a 5-10 minute drive to anything else from the lodge. It is not easy to walk anywhere from this location. We found the Airlink Shuttle to be a good deal. It cost $3.50 per person or a $10.50 minimum to most downtown locations. The Fountainhead Antique Auto Museum is a must see. You do this on your own; it is not an excursion offered by the cruise line. The train to Denali was great. Breakfast was included in the 4-hour ride. The train depot is a short bus ride away from the Denali Princess Wilderness Lodge. Most of the businesses here don't open until the 3rd week of May. The restaurants and the shops at the lodge were open. Recommend Lynx Pizza and Grizzly Burger. The only bus tour into the park was the Natural History Tour. It was interesting and we did get to see the mountain. We took a bus to Whittier via Anchorage. We had a 2-hour stop for lunch in Anchorage. The bus took about 7 1/2 hours total; the train takes 9 1/2 hours. The Island Princess is a nice ship. We really enjoyed all the open spaces and the views. Princess really knows how to make you comfortable. The beds are like sleeping on a pillow. Staff is exceptional. If you are looking for a relaxing cruise, this is the ship for you. We thought the entertainment and the food was the best.

Spectacular! Amazing! by troubadore

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

For my first cruise I was impressed! It’s amazing to me how they move so many people on and off this ship and stay in schedule. I enjoyed an experience where instead of me running from hotel to hotel my hotel travelled with me. I will definitely cruise again! I can see why Alaska is a different experience. There was already so much to see from the ship, i don think we were ever sailing where we couldn’t see an island, waterfall, glacier, lighthouse. Princess helped us to come back new and amazed.

Relaxation | Breathtaking Scenery | Fabulous Cruise by pattyahartigan

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

My first cruise was incredible. The scenery in Alaska was majestic and the ship board experience was much more than I imagined. I had a wonderful balance of relaxing on the ship, top notch entertainment and excellent customer service to help me feel pampered.

Not a fan. ... by Melmoaustralia

Sail date: /
Ship: Island Princess

Not a fan. Staff barely smiled, middle management grumpy. Sadly, a suicide death of a crew member during cruise only made matters worse. Ship very basic. Won’t be traveling again with princess.

Breathtaking Glaciers by Axon54

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Island Princess / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

TV experience really bad. Old TV shows repeating same episode throughout the day. Only a few choices most boring. They could do a much better job providing DVD programming that changes daily. More choices of channels and programs too. Far too much pushing of sales on-board such as jewelry and fine art.
