Very Deceptive advertising of Route - Don't sail this ship to Alaska


My wife and I were on the Referenced sailing from Anchorage to Vancouver. While the amenities and service were ok, the itinerary compared to the marketing materials were very deceiving. We were looking forward ...

Sub par cruise line inaccurately marketing itself as a premiere cruise line

The food is less than desirable. You will want to EAT at PORT as much as you can. I had Anytime dining and tried the main dining rooms and Allegro for breakfast. The food overall is bland, and I did not take more ...

Very poor customer relations

First and last cruise. Casino was awful and they have not credited me for slot winnings. Casino was usually closed or very few passengers. Once, the crap table was only open on one end due to lack of dealers and ...

Terrible Experience, Not Recommended

This will be a lengthy, transparent, and fair review but anyone considering to go on a Princess cruise should read this to help make their decision. My family and I just returned from a 7 day Alaskan cruise on the ...

The service was horrible (some just plain rude), food was mediocre, smallest bathroom of any cruise ship I have been on (we had a balcony room), and the activities were all geared towards older folks and those who ...

Old and boring

Well, long story short, my sister and I gave NCL, another chance, after 7 years of not cruising with them. We had been cruising with them on 2 separate ships, and found them both to be less than satisfying. We ...

Princess needs to cater more to Western cruisers.

We cruised the Diamond Princess, with a land cruise first to Denali Park. The land cruise - the cabins were frigid and didn't warm up until well into the night; the bathrooms never warmed so showers were quick. The ...

Couldn’t get off the ship fast enough.

Wow. Horrible. Bad food, bad service as a simple summary. Lots of whales sighted though (both at sea and at the buffet). Comically bad waiters sticking our menus into our food. Several meals in the dining room ...

The worst cruise I have ever been on

Travel agent recommended it for our Alaskan cruise. Embankment was the worst. Had to arrange own way to Whittier to board ship when many were shuttled from Airport. We were not on their list of eligible ...

This was our 2nd trip on the Carnival Spirit, and our third and likely last trip with Carnival. We'd had a good experience on the Spirit in Hawaii in 2004, a bad one on the Jubilee in the Caribbean during Christmas ...
