We are leaving for our first cruise on Sept 6th for Alaska on the Island Princess. Something thats been nagging at me is the differences between the Mini-suite with balcony and the Ocean-view double with balcony. We went with the Ocean-view double with balcony, in an attempt to save a bit of money. But looking at the pictures , did we miss out on something great by going the cheaper route?
You only lose out on a liitle sitting area between the bed and the slider that leads to the deck. No big deal. The deck is the key wjen it comes to Alska cruisong. Throw a small blanket over your shoulders and enjoy the ride.
