This was the only Item I can truly say was excellent.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
All common areas were kept clean well maintained. Stairs to decks 6 and 7 from Deck 5 in center were dangerous and should have signs warning women in high heels to not use

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Overall Comfort very good, Steward kept cabin very clean. Balcony less than sufficient.

Cruise Glacier Bay

5 out of 5
Having visited this in 2008, We were disappointed as to how many Glaciers had melted away.

Victoria, British Columbia

1 out of 5
This port was cancelled and we just sat in Ocean outside Victoria. Learned that in order to get a berth in Victoria Princess had to make reservations 2 years in advance which they didn't do, so they were denied entry. There were 2 other cruise ships in port, but not ours.
