Star Princess

7 Night Voyage Of The Glaciers Southbound (Anchorage To Vancouver)

Sail Date: September 08, 2018

Ship: Star Princess

Cabin Type: Balcony

Cabin Number: B622

Traveled As: Couple

Review Summary

Our cabin steward, Darwin Rodriguez, was truly exceptional. So too was our dining waitress, Zayda. The two formal nights are a joke. Princess does not enforce their rules on diners to wear anything remotely resembling formal attire. Really, anything goes, much to the detriment of those who adhere to their dress code. Some of us may be paying airline surcharges for bringing formal attire, and this is infuriating. It it past time to do away with formal nites, given lack of enforcement.

Entertainment is markedly improved compared to that on other recent Princess cruises. The Princess dancers and singers were exceptionally good, and dramatically better than on past Princess cruises.

Ship Tip

Be wary of making online reservations for specialty dining. You will not be able to use your on board credits for such dinners. Instead, book reservations when you are onboard.

Vancouver is a more dangerous city today, with many homeless sleeping and loitering the streets. Also, drugs that are illegal in the USA can be purchased most anywhere.
