Princess or Celebrity


Recommended Posts

We are planning our Cruisetour.


We are considering Princess and Celebrity.


Which do you prefer?


Chuck - no longer the Tahitian Virgin


As you can tell from my sig, I'm cruising on both lines this summer. I've never been on Princess before, but I really like Celebrity.


That said, Princess and HAL have the rep for the best cruise tours in Alaska.


Key things (in my opinion): see how long you'll be at each stop, and where you'll be staying (especially how close it is to what you want to see).

I strongly advise you to DO YOUR HOMEWORK, and understand EVERYTHING about booking cruisetours- most people do not.


Time is necessary, avoid short cruisetours, you need at least 5 days. Princess has table seating on the their train, meaning, 2 ride backward the entire trip, seats are assigned. Princess also has WAY too many of their cruisetours with the Natural History tour- AVOID this at all costs and make your booking a priority based upon this single factor. :)


Budget 50% more than you would at home for meals.
