Andrew Ford Posted June 1, 2022 Share Posted June 1, 2022 After being exclusively Royal Caribbean for a few years we've been spreading our wings recently. We were able to get a really great deal on a brand new ship, on an itinerary we've never been on, and during a time that worked great for both of us at work, and with my daughter's school schedule. So what's not to like..... It means we had to give princess a try. We had originally booked a late July sailing on Quantum of the Seas, but when this opportunity came up, we decided to take the FCC and apply that to next year's Odyssey sailing. The specifics Sailing with- This sailing will just be me, my wife, and daughter (12) Ship- Discovery Princess. The newest ship in the fleet and the last ship in the Royal Class from Princess. It looks like a ship made for big ship Alaska cruises. So while we don't get to visit the small places, I'm firmly in camp Big Ships are Best. Room- we booked a mini suite on the Riviera Deck, Deck 14 roughly midship. One other great feature is that it's on the hump which means a slightly larger balcony. The mini suites also have a full size shower/tub and some separation between the sofa bed where my daughter will sleep and the main sleeping area. Also, not that it matters with limited content, but there's also two TV's in the room. One thing we made sure of is to only have rooms above and below, meaning no public decks above nor below your room. It dramatically cuts down on noise. Itinerary- We'll be flying from Orlando up to Seattle on 6/10, luckily there's a non-stop out so it should be fairly painless for a six hour flight Hotel- I'm a Hyatt loyalist, and had some expiring certificates, so we'll be staying at the Hyatt Regency Seattle. I was able to apply a suite upgrade certificate which gives us a bit more room to spread out. It's also right down the street from one of my favorite Dumpling spots, Ding Tai Fung. 6/12- Depart Seattle 6/13- Sea Day 6/14- Ketchikan 6:30am-3pm 6/15- Endicott Arm and Dawes Glacier 5am-9am 6/16 Skagway 6am-5pm 6/17 Sea Day 6/18 The obligatory Canada Stop in Victoria 7pm-Midnight 6/19 Debark Seattle, and noon flight back to Orlando with a stop in Atlanta.
