Choosing a ship and cabin
We are going to book the Grand Alaska tour In 2021 but we have never been on a large cruise ship, this time we have no choice
We have been on the Isabella 2 to the Galapagos, the two new Ponant ships, Le Champlain and Le Laperouse and the River boat Inspire. From these we know we don’t need much storage space but would like a larger bathroom than the very small ones on the Ponant ships we had. Is there an advantage to having a balcony? Or would we regret not having one to see passing scenery?
The Alaska ships seem to range from over 3000 people to 600 people. When we last looked there were only dates showing as yet for 2021 but we would like to book early as we usually do.
We don’t see the need to book the most expensive cabins, am I right about this?.
As we obviously don’t fancy large ships, which ship and Rooms do you think would suit us?
Would we miss out on any worthwhile entertainment by choosing a small ship? We don’t gamble.
