trishm7957 We are trying the Sun to Alaska, so we'll see.
I agree with f-Mattox about the Grand and the Sun. I don't know what type of cabin you have booked on the Sun but if it has a balcony they are much different on this class of ship than they are on the other Princess class ships. The balcony on the Sun, Dawn and Sea are cut out of the hull so they are not totally open. There is metal on the lower portion where the plexi glass is on the other ships and metal on both ends of the balcony thus the overall feeling is much more like a huge glassless window. Depending on where you sit on the balcony and how tall you are you may have to stand rather than sit to see the ocean.
