No hassels leaving from San Francisco, no lines or customs delays.  The food was excellent, service was supurb, ports and excursions entertaining.  Days at sea were filled with things to do onboard, relaxing and enjoyable.  We would have liked to spend more time in Victoria, B.C. and have been able to enjoy high tea at the Empress Hotel.  This was our 5th trip to Alaska, 3rd wtih Princess.  We live in Las Vegas, NV and enjoy our respite from the heat.  Weather on arrival in San Francisco was 60 degrees cooler than Las Vegas, and continued to be in the 60's and low 70's throughout our trip.  Enjoyable ship, delightful people on board.
