Thanks for the info f-mattox. I've cruised a few times, Bermuda and the Caribbean.
In the past I've just gone for the bargains. I usually go for an inside cabin on a good ship. I'm booked on a repositioning cruise in April for 15 days out of Tampa on Royal Caribbean. It will be my first with a window but the price was great.
The cruise in Alaska will be the first time that I'm splurging on the cabin. We'll be on the Sapphire. I'll appreciate any advice you can give me.
