Review summary

Royal Princess is the biggest cruise ship I’ve been to. A newer ship. The atrium is beautiful. Layout is similar to other Princess cruise ships. The first medallion ship I’ve been to. The internet is much faster than other cruise ships. It’s cool that the cabin door unlocks automatically when you get near with the medallion.

No children

Service and Staff

Dining room wait staff were friendly and helpful, so we’re room stewards. Most of those in International cafe were friendly. There was one that was kind of rude but I’m not going to put his name here.

Booked crab feast from George Inlet Lodge. Best Dungeness crab! Book direct from their website to save money. They provide pick up and drop off service from port.

Juneau, Alaska

Didn’t join any excursion... had a nice walk around town and ate at Tracy Crab Shack. The best Alaskan snow crab!

Skagway, Alaska

4 out of 5
It’s a long walk to town. Didn’t take excursion this time. Last time we were at this port we rented a Jeep and drive up to Emerald Lake. Beautiful scenery along the way.

Whittier (Anchorage), Alaska

Not much in town unless you take excursions. We did the 26 Glacier. Saw a lot of animals and glaciers. Book direct from the company. It’s a lot cheaper than book from the cruise or from viator/trip advisor. It’s the same ship so you are guaranteed to be back in time as the others who booked thr
