Loved Our Cruise

Sail Date: May 31, 2015

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

When you take a vacation as infrequently as we do you want it to be perfect.  Often you have high expectations; you fantasize about how amazing it will be and the reality falls short.  That was not the case for us. Our vacation was everything we dreamed it would be. (A bit more sunshine would have been nice but nothing could dampen our experience!)

The ship was lovely. We had an amazing view from our balcony and the value was well worth what we paid.

Ship Quality
Lovely ship. Wish the bathrooms on Princess were bigger but everything else was great!
Food and Dining
I don't go on the cruises for the food. There was plenty of it and it was fine.
Service and Staff
The staff was wonderful. Our steward for B205 was excellent Enrique. Thai in the Da Vinci dining room was so helpful with my dietary needs.
It was fine. We only went to two shows. The strings trio from Hungary was exceptional.
Children's Programs NA
Onboard Activities
We loved the trivia. Could have more songs for Karaoke. Whale lecture was great!
Destinations and Excursions
We had three great trips (kayaking, biking and train). They are a bit expensive.
Cabin / Stateroom
The carpet was a tad stained. Otherwise the room was exceptional. We love it! Next time a suite with a larger shower :)
Seattle, Washington
Ketchikan, Alaska
We kayaked. It was great. Too cold to shop around afterwards.
Cruise Tracy Arm Fjord, Alaska
Amazing. Did not even have to get out of bed. The view out our window and balcony was spectacular!
Juneau, Alaska
Bike tour to the glacier was great. Wish we had enough time to walk to the falls. Good shopping.
Skagway, Alaska
Train ride was fun although our narration did not work for the first half of the ride.
Victoria, British Columbia
Love this city. Would like to have more time there. At least a half a day. Have the ship dock closer to 3PM.


If you are going to Alaska don't skimp. The balcony is a must!!!!!! Have breakfast in the dining room - much better than the buffet. Do trivia with Bianca - she's a hoot!
