Alaska is a beautiful place and getting there is more than half of the fun. The Royal Princess is a beautiful ship with many things to do, see or enjoy from early morning to late at night. Always book a balcony stateroom. We loved seeing the world go by without having to get dressed. Balconies are private but you can hear your neighbors clearly when you’re all on your balconies. We enjoyed sleeping with the balcony door ajar or wide open. The Royal had “smart casual” and “formal” nights. Most women were in dressy slacks and something sparkly on formal nights in Anytime Dining and men wore dark slacks with nice long sleeved button up shirts. In Traditional Dining, it was tuxedos and ball gowns. Smart casual meant no jeans or shorts so khakis/ dress slacks with nice shirts or blouses/sweaters were common for both men and women. It is a floating global community so be aware that there can be curious cultural behaviors that are new to many passengers. English was the primary language on our ship. Hygiene signs translated into Chinese, German and French would have been helpful so all passengers would wash their hands before every meal when entering the buffets or dining rooms. We did catch colds near the end of the cruise and noticed that staff had stopped supervising dining room hygiene on the third day. We seldom saw other passengers at the handwash stations after that third day. We walked around Ketchikan on our own. We visited Mendenhall Glacier National Park and Mt Roberts Tramway in Juneau. 90 minutes at Mendenhall is not enough time to walk to Nugget Falls for a closer glacier view and see the visitors’ center. Stay longer. The Tramway is amazing with a good restaurant at the top and fun hiking trails where we saw bears in the distance. In Skagway, we took a motorcoach to the Yukon Territory then rode the Skagway-Yukon Railroad back to Juneau from Fraser. Getting acquainted with the sled dogs in CarCrossing was a highlight. Skagway was a ghost town by 7:00 pm and that’s why the ship leaves by 8:00pm. From the ship, we took the Princess train from Wittier to Denali, stayed in Denali Princess Lodge then went by motorcoach to Fairbanks from which we flew home. The train was a wonderful day of travel but the highlight was the next day on a flightseeing tour which was 200 miles though the National Park including coming within 1/2 mile of Mt Denali/McKinley. Denali Lodge was tired, dark and dank. Food choices were limited at the resort. Traveling near the end of season means places are emptying their inventories so several menu items were not available in different restaurants near the Denali Lodge. Stay at the Princess Mt. McKinley Lodge instead of the Denali Lodge unless it gets renovated. Skip Fairbanks completely (tourist trap) and return to Anchorage for your flight. Read Less

We chose this cruise because we love the Royal Class ships and we knew who the maî·tre d'hô·tel was. On the Royal class ships the Enclave as part of the Spa is just such an incredible place to unwind, and it's only on the Royal class ships. We selected Club Class Mini-Suites because we loved the extra experience in club-class dining and were not disappointed. We have sailed to Alaska a few times and Princess has always been wonderful from start to finish. Our only blemish on the cruise was an excursion in Skagway, Photography, which was more time in the van than taking pictures. However, it was followed up with the glass blowing experience at the Jewell Gardens which was wonderful. We also purchased the photography package which allowed us to keep all the pictures taken on the ship and they are provided on a thumb drive too. This creates an excellent set of reminder memory for the cruise, and because they were on a thumb drive they were shareable immoderately Read Less
