Reality on an early season Alaska cruise- your experiences?
My partner and I usually go on vacations that are like the opposite of cruising- so cruising is something that my good friend and I do every couple of years. Next year I turn 40 and one of the things I wanted to do was to go on a vacation alone. I chose a cruise to Alaska on April 28th.
I would love to hear your experiences with the early Alaska cruises (late April to mid May.) on the pearl or similar class ships. I'm splurging on a balcony, and with paying for double occupancy and also committing to splurge on more spa services than usual, i can't really splurge on a later, more expensive sailing. Plus my birthday is in April!
Specifically I am curious how the sun decks get used (surely no one is lounging in a bikini, but are people there? Are they wearing ski caps poolside? How about the pools? Are they used? Heated?
Will I wish I am dead if I have breakfast on my balcony in the morning?
In general, are the rooms warm? I've only ever had to cool them!
