We did a mini suite on the Island for our Alaska cruise. LOVED the balcony as there was always something beautiful to see. Mini doesn't have the perks of the full suites but was great anyways. We loved the extra room, large bathroom with tub and shower, and glass of champagne. We got a great deal and the mini ended up costing us just a total of $200 (per couple, not person) more than a balcony room would have been.
