Princess Cruistour FAQs
Port vs. Starboard: Does It Matter?
You will have a pretty similar experience regardless of the side of the ship on which your cabin is located. Standard cabins will be identical, whether they're on the port or starboard side. When you're in the open ocean, the view is pretty much the same, and when docked, a ship can tie up on either side, so one side does not consistently have better views in port.
During scenic cruising, such as Glacier Bay in Alaska, the captain will usually turn the ship 360 degrees so both sides get good views, and when surrounded by really dramatic scenery, you're better off on the top deck than in your cabin anyway.
One instance when port versus starboard could make a difference is if you're on a cruise that generally sails in one direction, such as this one-way southbound Alaska cruise. On these itineraries, choose a port side cabin to see the sunrise. Choose starboard for the sunset views from your balcony.
What meals are included? All meals on board Princess railcars, at our wilderness lodges and at other hotels are at your own expense unless otherwise specified in the daily tour itinerary. Visit the Cruise Personalizer for your detailed itinerary. Princess offers pre-paid meal packages for the land portion of the Alaska cruisetour. These can be booked as part of your cruisetour. All meals and snacks onboard the Royal Princess are included. Specialty restaurants are available for an additional fee. Alcohol and specialty beverages are not included.
