cruise to Alaska

Sail Date: May 18, 2008

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Inside

Was not overly impressed with the cruise (Star Princess). The food at the buffet was consistently cold, no matter what time of the day we went to eat. Dinner at night in the dining room was alright on some nights and not so on others. The night I has the Alaskan King Crab (which I was so looking forward to), the crab was overcooked. The entertainment with the Princess singers and dancers was very good. The other entertainment during the day got to be very boring. How many days do you want to play trivia? Our room was adequate and our steward was exceptional. Twice a day the cabin was cleaned. Would I sail again with Princess? No.

Pros: the ports of call and scenery were incredible

Cons: the cruise, itself

Recommends Star Princess? No.

Ketchikan, Alaska
Ketchikan is great. Visit the Saxman Village. The Lumberjack show is okay, wouldn't see it again. Too many other options to waste time with it.
Juneau, Alaska
Went gold panning - don't recommend it. Not enough time spent actually panning.
Skagway, Alaska
Skagway was amazing. Gold panning here was much better than Juneau. Also, the Ghosts and GoodTime Girls was alot of fun. Ending the tour at the Red Onion Saloon was perfect.
