Default Pacific Princess or Island Princess?

I'm really "between a rock and a hard place" ! I've been looking at Alaska cruises for at least 2 years.

We've decided on Princess because we've always loved our Princess cruises.

There are two choices; the first is the 14 day Pacific Princess cruise. We like the ports, but we don't like the size of the ship (too small, mid size ships are our favorites). We also don't like the size of the mini-suites (like balconies on other ships), and the assigned seating in the the dining room (we like Anytime Dining). We're thinking that this ship is really too small for our tastes, but the ports may make the difference.

The price of this cruise is also at our very outer limits !

The other choice is a B2B on Island Princess. We'd visit the same ports twice, but we think that we wouldn't have any trouble finding something to do in each port, twice. The price of the B2B is a little more than half of the 14 day cruise. It would be Anchorage to Anchorage, with a stop in Vancouver.

Opinions would be much appreciated!
