Review summary

This was our first cruise with Princess and first time in Alaska. We really loved Alaska, and for the most part Princess was great. There were a few things they could improve but overall it was a great cruise.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
The food was good overall. Some desserts were flavorless, but most everything else was delicious.

Pizzeria

5 out of 5

The pizza was so much better than I expected. It was thin crust and full of flavor.

Crown Grill

5 out of 5

This was a GREAT dining experience. The food was so much better than what was in the MDR or buffet. I would do this again and well worth the minute extra cost.

Skywalkers Nightclub

5 out of 5

This was a great place to hang out during the day and just watch the ship cruising through the ocean. It was a quiet little hideout.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
We had so much fun with the trivia games and zumba and movies under the stars.

Entertainment

3 out of 5
The stage shows were not great. Two of the singers were really phenomenal, and the other two were just meh. The dancers were not great either.

Movies Under The Stars

5 out of 5

I loved that you could watch new movies each night. It was great watching them on the deck.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The servers, stewards, cruise directors, guest services, coffee baristas were all wonderful!

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
This ship is in need of an update. The carpets were old and stinky and the bathroom tiles and grout were older than old and dirtier than dirt.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
It was a mini suite which was a great size for 3 of us. Our room steward was great and kept it immaculate.

Ship tip

Buy the premium coffee card. It is a GREAT deal and includes unlimited hot chocolate. I changed all of my coffees to frozen blended versions with no problems.

Ketchikan, Alaska

5 out of 5
We did Adventure Karting which was so much fun, and my sister did the sea plane and crab feast and absolutely loved it.

Juneau, Alaska

5 out of 5
We did the glacier float trip and had a blast. I recommend choosing the adventurous version. It was fantastic. My sister did the whale watching and salmon bake and was beyond elated.

Skagway, Alaska

5 out of 5
We all did the Kroeshel Wildlife Refuge and it went way beyond our expectations. It was exciting and educational and endearing.

Victoria, British Columbia

2 out of 5
We did a double decker bus tour here. There was not much to see and it was kind of boring. I would choose to go off on my own next time.
