We're thinking booking an Alaska cruise in September. Any recommendations as far as cabin location and ship? The Diamond has one day at sea; the Sapphire two days at sea. Is Tracy Arm an actual port (stop) or does the shop just sail through the area? Thanks for any info you can share.
Tracye Arm is NOT a port - it is a beautiful glacier - so essentially a cruising day.
Have been on Diamond once to Alaska and going back this summer - FANTASTIC ship. The Sapphire is the EXACT same - so you can't go wrong on either.
Def. Rec.balcony - you will REALLY enjoy it in Alaska. We have done the Mini-suite on Dolphin and were very pleased.
hi we went on the sapphire princess last june, and it was a beautiful vacation. for the sides we were worried about that too but our travel agent didn't really say it mattered because you go up one way and back the other, and you really have an excellent view on both. have you ever cruised before? and if not do u know about the dinning?
nm08: we're thinking of going in August. Hope the weather will cooperate. We love sea days and read that the Diamond has 1 day at sea and the Sapphire has two. We have cruised on Diamond before and did traditional dining - enjoying the same tablemates and wait staff throughout the cruise. I've heard the menus offer alot of seafood, which I'm allergic to. This might be the cruise to help me loose the extra pounds I gained over the holidays! ha
