My husband and I enjoy cruising and we didn't want to stop after having our beautiful daughter. Alaska was on our short list of cruise destinations and we've heard that Princess is the best cruise line to see Alaska right. We were not disappointed! Vancouver was an easy city to navigate and made for a stress-free embarkation day. The Coral Princess ship felt spacious and gorgeous; it definitely didn't feel like a small or older ship. We had a balcony cabin (PERFECT for viewing the breathtaking Alaskan mountains, glaciers, whales, etc.) and it was well worth the extra cost over a inside cabin. We had plenty of space to store all our extra baby gear, for the little one to walk around & play, and to get away from napping baby out on the balcony. We were able to do sit down dining EVERY NIGHT. I thought this would be impossible with a teething 12mo old, but our amazing waiter (Carlos de Mexico) made extra effort to make sure our daughter was happy and entertained all evening. Carlos brought out appetizer portions of different meals for baby girl to try, and the chef blended meats & veggies every night so baby girl could have fresh baby puree. Although the buffet was smaller than the larger ships we're used to, it was not lacking in options or deliciousness. Room service also brought Gerber baby food to our room any time baby girl needed an extra snack between meals. Although we weren't able to go to any of the main shows (past baby's bed time), we did catch a couple daytime productions and they were fantastic! The actors, music, and lights were wonderful and even captivated a 1yo for the entire hour. The ports of Ketchikan, Juneau, and Skagway were super fun and offered lots of excursions for all types of groups. We found family-friendly activities, but there are definitely more adventurous options. We loved sailing through Glacier Bay and College Fjord. The ship had park rangers over the intercom narrating our journey, pointing out exciting things to look at/take photos with, and genuinely making the sea days more exciting. The entire family had a wonderful experience and would highly recommend the Coral Princess for your next vacation. The ship is beautiful, the food was delicious, and the staff were beyond amazing.

We chose this cruise because of Glacier Bay. And we hadn’t sailed with princes yet. The good. Service staff in the dining room was exceptional. Same with cabin staff. Food was ok in buffet and very good in main dining room. Plenty of room around ship, never felt crowded. The bad. Main dining took forever, every night. I’m talking to hours plus for dinner. Biggest problem was that we booked multiple cabins. My dad is is 80 was promised a cabin next to ours and we were put on deck 12 and he was on 5. (We used the assigned cabin feature to save money) The point is you cannot trust what the phone representatives tell you. We used the princess website to put in food allergies for a couple of the guest. Staff had no clue when we went to dinner the first night. No robes in room which was another request. Entertainment was definitely subpar compared to other cruises I’ve been on Customer service at the service desk ,could care less and our problems. And that’s what I saw as they dealt with other people. You should definitely choose a different line based on my experience and opinion. Read Less

Wanted the land tour along with our repeat of the cruise portion from years before. Found the accommodations at the Princess Cruise lodges in Denali, Fairbanks and McKinley somewhat primitive, but certainly adequate. The one night in Anchorage was at the Captain Cook Hotel and found the facility and of superior quality. A great 5 stars for them. We recommend that in the Princess Hotels that room refrigerators and safes should have been part of the lodgings and would have been greatly appreciated. The food at the 3 Princess Lodges was very expensive and not good. We expected the expensive part. The paddle boat tour included in Fairbanks was wonderful and remined us of a Disney tour. The included lunch was very good. The tour in Denali Park was also top notch and greatly appreciated. It has been a few years since we cruised with Princess and were disappointed in what we thought to be a slide backwards in quality. We attributed it to its acquisition by the Carnival Cruise line. We were use to Celebrity and Princess was a let down from what we experienced in the past. We were on the beverage package and were surprised there were no sommeliers. The included wines had only one wine on each of the red or white wine categories. The wines on the red side were largely undrinkable with only the red blend as tolerable. Of course when they quickly ran out of the red blend they were quick to try to talk us into paying for a higher priced substitute. In Celebrity the substitute would have been offered at no additional cost. The wines are not poured in front of you but provided pre poured. We could only tell the wines were bad after we had a full glass of wine. The wines were always served in small dinky glasses that were not designed to let the wine breath. All complaints to the dining staff were for the most part ignored. I had to to go the beverage director via the front desk as the Assistant Maître de refused to identify management staff. Overall, we felt we were on a third class ship. The activities onboard were the usual including trivia. The entertainment was of the standard variety, some we felt was not worth attending. The cabin attendant did an excellent job. The food on board, even in the dining room was average to poor. The buffet food was cold and lacked variety. Read Less
