Poor room accommodation

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Suite

This was supposed to be a trip of a lifetime!  Our request for a suite with a balcony was fulfilled but there was no mention that there was an obstructed view from our balcony.  Our plan to enjoy many moments on our balcony watching all of the beautiful scenery pass by was not possible because of the only way to view was standing up because the balcony was a wall that you had to stand up to see over. The bedroom had a window that faced out on the bow of the ship and other passengers on the bow could see directly into our room. I brought this to the attention of the pursers desk and was told that there were no other room to give us.  We planned this cruise well in advance with much anticipation but our dissatisfaction with our room was of no concern to any of the personnel of the ship.  We will never recommend Princesss Cruise lines to anyone!!!  Alaska is beautiful but the trip was very marred by our very poor suite accomodations!!

In my opinion no suite with a balcony should have an obstructed view!! We paid extra for a suite and balcony!

Do not assign any room with a balcony that does not have a full view from being able to sit in chairs and view the beautiful scenery
