We've been on Princess ships before and I expected the Alaskan one to be even better (since it is more expensive).  It wasn't. We found that some of the food was not as good as previous trips and some of the staff seemed to have a very unfriendly attitude. With that said, some of the food was great and some of the staff were wonderful! 

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Some was great, some wasn't. The international cafe was very disappointing.
Service and Staff
Our waiter and room steward were both great. Some of the staff, in the bars and coffee places, were very unfriendly.
Onboard Activities
More variety would be great. There are too many art and jewerly things. It starts to feel like you are always dealing with pushy sales people.
Destinations and Excursions

Cruise Tracy Arm Fjord, Alaska
The snow level was way down, so we didn't get very much of the fantastic glacier views.
Juneau, Alaska
Skagway, Alaska
Such an adorable little town, with beautiful mountain views. It was our favorite!
Victoria, British Columbia


We tried eating lunch in the horizon court one day, (you usually aren't hungry enough for a full lunch), but, if you are, I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food and the choices.
