We really enjoyed this itinerary. The entertainment on the ship was spectacular. We had so much fun and relaxation. The captain was excellent in making sure we had enough time to watch the glaciers.

Fui mi primer viaje en crucero y me encantó. Durante todo el crucero los paisajes son hermosos, la vista esta increíble. El clima es un poco frío en la parte de arriba del barco pero en si muy agradable.

Enjoyed the pre-cruise tour, some of the ports we visited were nice, the entertainment on the ship was excellent, and the train ride from McKinley to Anchorage was fun....Loved all the windows and enjoyed the dining on the train.  Enjoyed Denali and McKinley Lodge; however, Copper River Lodge too secluded and menu too limited and pricey.

Alaska cruise: Amazing scenery and wildlife

We took he southbound (Anchorage-Whittier to Vancouver) Glacier bay cruise on the Star Princess in June 2017. The ship was good, mid-size, not crowded at all, the food in the buffet and restaurants was very good, lobster night is still on (not like other cruise lines). Crew was very helpful, all the time looking for ways to help you have an amazing time onboard. Views from the ship were excellent, I heard that this is one of only two Princess ships that have a viewing area on the front of the ships, which makes the viewing of the glaciers an amazing experience. TIP: If you are taking the Alaska cruise: BRING BINOCULARS!

Anytime dining worked out well. Also the casual dining in the Regency Rooms was excellent ... good selection of food and always available for all meals.

Stay in the midship. Don't buy the drink cards, they are expensive. Also Excurisions are overly priced. I was able to find all my excursion on either Orbitz or on my own. On Kauai, we booked a helicopter trip, they wanted 325.00 on the ship and we found it for 189.00 per person. I highly recomm

While the ice cream shop serves soft ice cream at no charge, one of the best-kept secrets on the ship is that they also have hard ice cream and milkshakes - there is a fee, but it is well worth it.
