Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Variety was weird. Need a new chef. Food was better on last cruise we had taken. Italian food was not Italian. Brown gravy on veal scallopini? come on! Everything was less than expected for food.

Entertainment was less than I rememebered. We had great shows every night on previous voyages. I didn;t like the fact that we could not get into the show after dinner. If you didn't go early, we would not get a seat. Didn't do that on previouse cruises. It's like you have to fight for a seat. This is not a pleasant voyage when you are like cattle trying to get to watering hole.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
some staff would see that you got everything you needed. We would not see certain foods, so the waiter would bring us some. Bar staff was very friendly and attentive.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
I would go on this ship again. Not to all ports visited. Haines was a bust.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Loved our cabin steward. Took good care of us. Did not like the bed. We awoke achy and sore every morning. I remember ships beds as comfy and cozy on previous voyages. Missed that.. In fact, I was looking forward to snuggling in those comfy beds. What a disappointment.

Ports Of Call

Ketchikan, Alaska

5 out of 5
We should have had a lot more time at this port. You go on tour and you don't have much time to see downtown, missed Creek Street.
Don't Miss: don;t know

Haines, Alaska

1 out of 5
We walked around but not much to do. This was a waste of time unless you took an expensive tour.
Don't Miss: ??????????????? Not much shopping here, not much of anything.

Victoria, British Columbia

1 out of 5
We had been here before, city tour was OK, don't need to go back here.
Don't Miss: don't knoow

Juneau, Alaska

3 out of 5
We didn't get to see Juneau, because we had an excursion. Then they canceled due to weather and we took another helicopter flight that was overcharged for what we did.
Don't Miss: Don't miss Red Dog Saloon. We only had 20 min. Need to be at Juneau longer.

Pros: Cruising

Cons: Food

Recommends Sea Princess? Yes!
