This is my first post, but have read cruise addicts for over a year. Amazed at all the great information from experienced travelers.
I am planning my first Alaska cruise, and my future cruises depend on a good experience with this one. My husband and I did a Mexico cruise last year on RCCL. He disliked the whole experience. He called it "Motel 6 and Denny's on the water" Too much of a drinking partying cruise. We are outdoor people that love hiking, rafting and kayaking. So.... I am hoping this turns out to be a better cruise experience. This is what I am planning:
The Cruise/Land tour through Princess to either Denali/Kenai or Denal/Copper River. I am looking at the Coral Princess one way from Vancouver ending in Fairbanks. Here are my questions
1. Has anyone taken this cruise and how did it turn out?
2. Anyone recently been on the Coral Princess? I am trying to decide between a balcony or a mini-suite. The suite is only 200.00 more. Any room suggestions.
3. Has anyone made reservations through discount travel sites or is it better to make all plans through Princess
4. Excursion suggestions?
