Itinerary: Alaska

This was our first cruise, so we didn't know what to expect. Princess had been suggested to us because of its Anytime Dining. This option alone made our trip on Princess perfect. Each evening we were able to dine at a different restaurant, each with its own distinct menu and decor. In addition, we could order items from the International Dining Room menu. Each meal was a delight of color and taste. We spent a week just being pampered by the staff wanting to fulfill our every wish. We highly recommend having a stateroom with a balcony. Sunrises could be enjoyed from the balcony at leisure, and we lounged over breakfast served there more than once. The weather was incredible at each port--sunny, cloud-filled skies--and the excursions were full of educational and historical info. We especially enjoyed the trip in Skagway by coach into Canada and then the trip back by train along the route traveled years ago by the gold miners. Tracy Arm was another highlight with its glacier and icy blue water. On board ship, we renewed our wedding vows with the Captain officiating! We couldn't have been treated more royally. We loved our cruise so much that we planning on taking Andrew's parents on a Princess Caribbean cruise next year to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary. Princess is the only way to cruise!
