It is a few years since we cruised with Princess, could anyone tell me if when the ship docks at the different Ports, if a shuttle bus is necessary to get from the port into the town/city do Princess make a charge?
what ports are you referring to? Princess offers shuttle service from the airport to the pier for embarkation and from the pier to the airport for disembarkation for a fee.
Ports of call - not unless you are taking a ships tour.
Only in Victoria, $ 5.00 Canadian return to save a 15 minute walk , otherwise in all other Alaskan stops you are downtown when you step off the ship . Spend the money , you only live once . Eat everything because I always say " Cruise it , then lose it ".
