Default Cost of food at Denali and Mckinley Lodges on Alaska Cruise

Can someone answer this question: Is there a cost to the food on the train to Denali and at each of the lodges, or (we wish) is the food cost included in the cruise fare? What is the average cost for breakfast, lunch and/or dinner on the train and at the lodges?

I have been unable to "google" any info on the kind of food and quality on the excursion

Any personal experience would be appreciated.

The descriptions of Princess's "hosted" land tours state which meals are included, usually in parentheses at the end of the description of each day's activities. Look for codes like "(B, D)" (breakfast and dinner included) or "(B, L, D)" (breakfast, lunch, and dinner included).

IIRC, Princess's "escorted" land tours include breakfast, lunch, and dinner every day -- or at least once did. If not, they will use the same codes as the "hosted" tours.

Prices in Alaska are generally somewhat higher than what a similar restaurant would charge in the "Lower Forty-Eight" but still manageable. Budget for 50% more than what a sit-down restaurant with full table service at home would charge.
