We want to go back to Alaska next year! I did book a future cruise onboard, however......... We can get a balcony cabin on Princess for nearly $600 cheaper than an OV cabin on DCL. We can also leave out of Seattle (driving distance for us) rather than Vancouver.

We are adults, so the kids club isn't a factor.

Has anyone done both DCL and Princess cruises recently? How much did you miss that "Disney magic" on Princess? How does the dining and entertainment compare?

Thanks for helping me make the decision.
The issue is that DCL is expensive to begin with, but they are rip off to Alaska. HAL, Princess etc are definitely cheaper. Their quality/service is the same or better than DCL. For adults, I wouldn't do DCL to Alaska. If you have kids, you might want to spend the extra $$.
