Alaska Cruise

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple
One main issue I had with this experience happened during check out. I wanted to have my on ship expenses directed to a different funding source than what was used for the booking of the cruise. When I tried to check out and do that, I was told that I could but then the charges would take two weeks to be returned to the current card on file. Not that this was an issue for me but I can see how holding charges like that for others could cause a financial issue. That was not acceptable. This should have been made clear either at the time of the booking or once on ship, to be given a chance to change or verify your funding source prior to any charges being made would be the more appropriate way of handling this.

my family said it was the best vacation they have ever been on. After this vacation we have decided to only do Princess cruises. Everything was spectacular

Overall cruise was excellent. Wish the ship had more shows to watch and comedians. The staff were very kind. If you book any spa packages beware that the price they quote you does not include a 15% gratuity that they add on to the bill. They will also try to sell you a bunch of extra items.

Alaskan Cruise

This was my traveling companions first cruise and I was convinced it was her last! When we arrived home on Sunday she was already talking about planning another one for next year!! What a surprise! I guess that says it all. Since I have a Platinum card with Princess you know how I feel about cruises. I love how easy they are. This was my third trip to Alaska and it is the state you never get tired of seeing.

Setting sail aboard the Ruby Princess

This cruise came highly recommended to us from friends.  Our cabin was very comfortable and rommier than I excepted...balcony was large!  Plenty space to hang clothes and a lot of drawers and shelves for clothes and stuff. Room was clean, clean, clean and our steward kept is straightened.

Food was good at the buffet, great at the seated dinners and really nice at the Crown Grill.  Availability of food was convenient as we missed the seated diner a few times due to our excursions. Enjoyed breakfast...so much variety.  

Entertainment was fun.  Enjoyed music, piano, singing, magic and comedy. Heard 2 talks on Alaska and that was interesting.

Very nice view of the bow on TV and appreciated announcements from Captain (or whoever) for things to see as we sailed.

Crew was friendly...smiling and busting their butts everyday for us.  Appreciate that!
