Huge ship. Probably won’t do another cruise. Too ritzy and way too many people for us hillbillies! Really enjoyed Alaska, though.

Totally awful! Princess put us on the last group leaving the ship and we had to begin boarding at 11:40. The plane reopened its doors for us! I don’t know how we ever made it! Long long lines. The airport customs wouldn’t accept our customs form that we submitted days earlier on the ship.
