I just booked an Alaska Cruse (7/2004) on the Island Princess. I booked an outside blcony room on the Emerald deck (E308). Now that I REALLY look at the boat configs, it looks like we are close to the boats that take you to & from the ports. Can anyone give me give me a quick review of that particular deck and should I maybe change decks???? This is our first Alaska cruise as wellas a suprise B-day gift for my husband, so I want everything to be just right!!! Thanks!
I think you will be fine there. It looks like a pretty good location to me! The boats don't appear to be obstructing the view. If anything bothers you, it might be the noise of them lowering the boats in the mornings that you will tender into port. I would imagine they would do that within an hour or so of arrival. That certainly wouldn't bother us, we are up and about well before the tenders start moving!
