Alaska Back to Back

Sail Date: July 2012
Destination: Alaska
Embarkation: Vancouver

We embarked and disembarked from Vancouver on this back to back Alaska cruise, our first cruise together. Both my wife and I had taken independent cruises earlier in our lives.

Embarkation process was very smooth and fast, took less than 30 minutes from our drop off at the port.

We both use C-PAC for our sleep apnea and had been told to bring an extra extension and power bar. That and our four suitcases easily left space in the closet and left room for other items we bought on board and on the excursions.

Service was attentive and very good at all venues. We had the late dinner booking and was set with two other couples who were fantastic and hopefully will be life long friends. We ate one night at the Italian restaurant and did not feel the quality was any better than the regular restaurant.

We did some Princess excursions and some with others from cruise critic. The ones we arranged with others on Cruise Critic were much better.

The More glaciers were unbelievable good, but it was cold doing the watching from the top decks, on the return trip we found it better on the 7 deck walk around was better for watching.

We had an inside cabin and it appeared for others who had balconies that it was a better choice for sleeping if you are easily waken by light as the nights are very short.

Visually we would rank this cruise a 9.5 out of 10 for the scenery. Less
