Our 4th cruise to Alaska and we stayed prior to our sail date in Anchorage at the Captain Cook Hotel as part of our Princess package with hotel and transfers to the ship. The hotel was very nice, Anchorage is an easy town to walk about and the transfer to the ship was well organized. We arrived in Whittier about 1:00 and went thru the Preferred Boarding area in less than 10 minutes.
We were in e728, Emerald deck, mini suite w/ extended balcony port side. The cabin is a standard Princess mini suite and though clean, the furniture has definitely seen better days.
The furniture on the balcony was a mishmash collection of different styles and shapes.
As mentioned above, clean and comfortable yet very worn furnishings. The couch looked like a tired old shoe. The upolstery was worn and frayed and you sank to the springs when you sat down. The bathroom / tub was nice and spacious.
