Princess Rules Alaska

I just really have always wanted to take an Alaskan cruise. The Coral Princess in September was a wonderful experience. The crowds were smaller and the weather was just about perfect. There was not a mosquito to be ...

Be prepared to catch the flu!

It was chosen for us as part of a local-sponsored cruisetour of Alaska. In all the information we were given ahead of our trip, nothing was mentioned about having a flu shot before going. By the third day on the ...

Beautiful Alaska Journey

We picked this cruise line because of what we had heard from others and that they are one of only two lines allowed into Glacier Bay which was a must see for us. The ship is beautiful, never felt crowded even with ...

Needs Improvements

Awesome FIRST Cruise

The cruise was awesome. All of the staff we encountered were very pleasant except for one and I chalk that up for just having a bad day. We all of them occasionally. The reason I say this is, every time we saw this ...

Not usually a cruiser, but loved this cruise

We used a Princess motor coach transfer from Anchorage to Whittier and it was very efficient. By completing the Ocean Ready process before we left home, the Embarking was super easy. The services once we boarded ...

This cruise was an event that could be repeated, there is so much to see and do.

This cruise was chosen because the Inside Passage cruise has been a bucket list item for many years. It totally exceeded our expectations. The Island Princess was extremely accommodating with great passenger to ...
