Alaska cruise

Sail Date: June 25, 2016

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Had a wonderful tour\cruise.  One major contributing factor was the excellent weather allowing max visibility and comfort.

All tours were arranged through Princess lines and each tour bus was close to the ship, timely and informative. Last cruise booked two cruises thru Crusiesonly and were a bust.

The natural history tour was only fair. Suggest take the wildlife tour as those raved about diversity of animals seen. 




Cabin / Stateroom
Excellent service; balcony large; only had a very small shower, no tub
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Ship Quality
Ship did display some signs of aging, one banister fell off when used. There were fraying of fabrics on some of the walls
Destinations and Excursions
Onboard Activities
Service and Staff
Food and Dining
Great food but only two dining rooms that did not have a cover charge.
Whittier (Anchorage), Alaska
Cruise Hubbard Glacier
Great views of the glacier; ship took time in the bay
Cruise Glacier Bay
Excellent comments made by their naturalist; cruised very slowly and allowed each side of the ship to view
Skagway, Alaska
Juneau, Alaska
Problem was that tour ended at 2:30 and ship left at 3:30 no time for any port walking\shopping. Need to incoprorate time to allow some time in the city

Any time dining was fine; was busy but able to get everyone seated ina timely fashion. Food was excellant
