Default Open Balcony On Island

With the Princess promotion I was
able to book a mini-suite at a great
price for an Alaska cruisetour. It's
AC Cabin on Dolphin. I hope
someone who has had an "open"
balcony would tell me how they
liked it.

don't really know what you mean by "open" balcony. we had a balcony on the Island princess a couple of years ago and it was great. We also had a friend on the same cruise who had a mini suite with balcony that was even better! Both were super. one of the few problems with balconies on Princess ships is that quite a few of them are not completely shielded from view from other balconies above.

Have a great cruise
Bon Voyage

The mini-suites on the Dolphin Deck are completely open. I like them, but other do not because other passengers can see them and they fell that their privacy is invaded.

I like them because you can get a full view. On all of Princess cruises, we have been on the Dolphin Deck.

On the Island Princess two month ago, some idiot deposited some cigarette butts on the balcony along with some trash.
