Review Summary

Everything was great.  The ship staff was very courteous and attentive to our needs.  The food was excellent and the room was always clean and stocked. The best part was the captain of the ship.  He was able to change the scheduled course in Glacier Bay to include a side trip to John Hopkins Glacier. He also stopped the ship at Marble Island to allow plenty of time to observe the Stellar sea lions. He made an announcement at 11:00 pm one night to let us know that Northern Lights were visible.  He kept us informed of our cruise status, weather conditions, etc. Princess Cruises was very organized as far as getting on and off the ship at each port.  A great cruise.

We didn't do too much on board the ship. We were too tired after our day excursions.

We didn't have kids with us so we didn't pay attention to what was offered.

The Totem Bight Park excursion was very good. Our guide was very knowledgeable and a joy to listen to.

Vancouver (Canada Place), British Columbia

5 out of 5
We had a late flight home, so we took the city of Vancouver bus tour. The tour was interesting and the bus driver was very knowledgeable. The Vancouver airport was confusing. Air Canada did not have anyone to help guide us to where we should be. We had 1 hour long lines just to drop our bags after we self checked in at a kiosk.
