Review summary

i Picked Princess based on the route. Their land portion, not great. Too much bus riding. Recommend doing Alaska land on your own, not princess . Pick a ship that has more time in each port, if possible. Pick a ship with better rated food. Not a big fan of all parts of the medallion. In spite of a few things -we loved Alaska, met great people, and had a wonderful time. And we were spoiled, we had the most unbelievable weather.

Getting ripped off at fitness center. Thought I was getting a health evaluation that I paid for, instead it was a sales pitch for cleansing
