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 ...

Alaska is the Top of your Wish List

Princess always has been and is still the best cruise line for Alaskan cruises. The itinerary is the best. The cabin was a balcony, the only way to go in Alaska. The cabin steward was extremely efficient and was ...

Amazing Cruise From Whittier, Alaska to Vancouver

We chose this cruise ship because it sails along the inside passage in Alaska, and it is the only ship that has the permission to approach glaciers. The weather was not cooperative, yet we still got to see the ...

Beautiful Alaska

Alaska had always been on our list, and felt this was the best way to see it. The lodges were mediocre, understaffed, and running out of provisions because of "end of season". The ship was average, service ...

Thought princess was #1 but the food was nothing good and ship decor was dated. Soda package was not worth price. Cheaper to buy individually. Must too inconvenient to greet a pop. Alaska was beautiful but better ...

A very disappointing cruise.

We took the Island Princess as part of an Alaska Cruise Tour. The inland portion of the tour was excellent. This was primarily due to selecting the connisseur tour. While more expensive it probably proved cheaper ...
