Holland America vs Princess

Jump to last reply

Hello,
we are a group of friends in late 40s, with several teenage kids. We are planning to take an Alaskan cruise this summer and wondering which cruise line would be the best for us. I've heard that HAL caters to a generally older (over 50) croud. Is this true? We are looking at a 7 days one-way cruise from Ancorage to Vancouver.
One other issue with the HAL ship is that it doesn't have rooms with balconies. A balcony was very nice to have on a Caribbean cruise (although not a necessity of course). How important is it to have it on an Alaskan cruise, where I assume one cannot spend countless hours on a potentialy windy and rainy deck?
Many thanks in advance!
