The overall view of Princess was OK. The Land portion was excellent and the tour director - she was the best - Terry. The ship was OK and would not do a 7 day cruise of the coast again.

Food and Dining

I could not believe that if I wanted a Chocolate Milk at lunch time I had to pay separate for it. It is not included in your drinks with a meal

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
Not a lot of entertainment that was quite time. Most of the other cruises we have been on there is usually a 3-4 string ensemble to go and listen too. Also some of the show times are rather early but overall the activities were ok

Beauty Salon

I did not know that they did nails until one of the woman I sat with for breakfast was telling me that she was going I went and made an appointment and had Tristan who was simply wonderful and pleasant. She was a hidden gem.

Princess Theater

Seats not the most comfortable and hard to come in level 7 and walk down the stairs to lower level. People all sit on the outsides and never move in for others to get a seat. Also need to tell people to keep their cell phones off during showtimes. Guess they just came to the show to spend it on their phones.

Ship Quality

many of the ladies rooms I went into were not the cleanest. Also so many these out of order.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Only problem with the cabins were taking a shower and trying to get in and out with either too hot or too cold water. Hard to have a shower with regulated water temp.

Ship Tip

wash your hands all the time. This is the first time we have come with infections from a cruise. Both my husband, myself and my niece all ended up with staff infections.

We did the Hop on Hop off while we were in Vancouver for a wasted day. We never fly out of Vancouver until 11 pm that night. We booked our flights with Princess but if I ever travel again with you - I would book my own air
