Hello! Planning an Alaska cruise on the Ovation for June 2020. We've only done Caribbean cruises so far and have never been to Alaska. What stateroom category would you recommend....oceanview or balcony?
Balcony, no question. We did our first balcony on our Alaska cruise and loved it.Hello! Planning an Alaska cruise on the Ovation for June 2020. We've only done Caribbean cruises so far and have never been to Alaska. What stateroom category would you recommend....oceanview or balcony?
We couldn't decide so are doing a side to side cruise. July 5th on the Ovation then on July 12 will be boarding the Radiance for a Northbound cruise. Get the best of both worlds.I think I would want an Balcony for Alaska.
We are sailing on Ovation in April (South Pacific) and we have a a couple of balcony rooms and one interior room. We found the prices on Ovation balcony rooms to be fairly reasonable, I think it is partly because there are so many of them. At this point we are planning on sailing to Alaska on Radiance (one way, northbound) but we are considering switching to Ovation of of Seattle if we fall in love with her this spring.
So much of this is based on the cruisers on your ship but I think that Ovation if the seas would be most likely to meet your desires. Alternatively - Norwegian Bliss is probably also a good candidate.I would book a balcony. We did the Alaska cruise this past July on Princess and we used the balcony daily. It's protected so not nearly as windy as on the top of the ship and it can get cold up there. We are thinking about RCC for another Alaska trip in 2020. I looked at the website and they don't really have pictures of the rooms. Are they fairly updated? How was the food/coffee? Princess was ok. Ship seemed in need of refreshing and it was bit boring. No real shows or anything. Looking for a little more of a lively vide.
