Star Princess

7 Night Alaska Inside Passage (Seattle Roundtrip)

Sail Date: May 24, 2009

Ship: Star Princess

Review Summary

Great ship with neat amenities. Great food servers and room stewards. The buffet was rather poor food compared to the other types of dining. Even their coffee was bad! Yet the coffee in the dining rooms was fantastic. Getting of at the different ports was a major pain, with all the perfectly managed parties and parties they couldn't get the disembarkation coordinated. They tended to nickle and dime things to death. Can't believe you have to pay for soft drinks!
