Bob and Nancy, Strathroy, ON - (trip to Vancouver BC Canada)

Wow, it is hard to believe that it is a month since our holiday to Alaska. We went on a 10 night Denali Explorer cruise tour with Princess in September 2015. Both Bob and I would like to sincerely thank you for everything that you did to make our trip so wonderful. Your recommendations were terrific and every detail was covered. We traveled with ease and enjoyed every minute.  It was the best trip that we have ever been on.  So worth the wait.
Princess is a wonderful company to travel with. They make everything so easy, from the airport, to the hotel, to the ship and  back home again. Their port  tours were so well organized and the guides were knowledgeable and very professional. We really enjoyed the land tour of Alaska, yes we were able to see Mount Denali , the autumn leaves were beautiful and the weather was spectacular! Bob and I even saw the Northern Lights, so he can stroke that one off his bucket list.(thanks for suggesting this time of year for the trip Monica - your research paid off, thanks) The Riverboat and Gold Dredge tour was fantastic. What a wonderful way to end a perfect trip.
The Coral Princess was okay, the rooms were not as clean as I would of liked them. Smelly toilet bowl brush beside the toilet ( it was bad!!!!), our robes were worn and had been around for a long time, dusty furniture. I had taken some wipes so I felt more comfortable after a little clean up.
However, the patio windows were spotless and fellow looking after our room was very friendly and accommodating.
The crew celebrated our anniversary in style; cards, Champaign, special desserts, poster on our door and everyone congratulated us on our 37th wedding anniversary. It was really a fun day. Glacier Bay was awesome, we even saw the glacier calving! A day to remember!
We enjoyed the 5:15 dinning, met great people and had a wonderful window table where we saw whales and sea otters playing. The buffet was not one of our favourite places to eat. The specialty restaurants were great. The shows and entertainment were wonderful.
Oh, I must mention that the Four Seasons Hotel in Vancouver is wonderful. We loved our stay there. The Denali Lodge was a spectacular spot, the view was outstanding, the rooms were cute and the hot tubes were awesome. However the Fairbanks Princess Riverside Lodge was a big disappointment. It was dirty, beds were not  made nicely, carpets in the lobby were filthy, the food was just yucky! We found a nice restaurant down the street and went to a smoke house downtown Fairbanks the last night.
Monica, this was a wonderful trip, we are recommending you to our friends. Once we get some more points built up we will be back to see you. Thanks once again for all your help, you were fantastic! We loved our trip!
Sincerely, Bob and Nancy 

I want to go to Vancouver
