This was our sixth cruise, first to Alaska and second on the Coral Princess.
We choose this Alaska cruise because of the itinerary and because we had sailed on Coral several years ago through the Panama Canal.
The ship has been upgraded since our last cruise. The casino is smaller but they added a dessert/coffee cafe in its place. In my opinion a great idea. I loved the casino and its size was appropriate and never felt crowded. The cafe had free desserts or sandwiches and premium coffees etc that you paid for. It was a nice place to hang out between shows or for a late night or afternoon snack.
Alaska is gorgeous and you get to appriciate the landscape that has had little influence from people. It is very remote, rugged and isolated. We saw whales and other wildlife. The big difference in Alaska and the Carribibean is that on an Alaska cruise you always have something to see outside the ship. We skipped the main dining room a couple of nights so we could watch the scenery and whales. Best cruise experiance we have had. Great food, entertainment and service.

Ship Tip

Decks 10 and 11 have open viewing areas in the front. You have to go through a door that says "Emergency Exit Only" to get to them. The naturalist will encourage you to do this. Great views on both sides of ship.
