We decided on Princess based on friend's experience and then a travel agent suggested the Ruby because it went to Glacier Bay which she suggested over Tracy Arm. The ship was beautiful but of course it offers so many places to go to for ... Read more

My husband and I chose this cruise as we had always wanted to see Alaska and the glaciers there and we were not disappointed with the scenery and beauty we saw. For this cruise we chose the mini suite option for our cabin and were ... Read more

We returned from our Alaskan Ruby Princess Cruise, out of Seattle on May 27. It was a great week and well worth the time and planning. However, we were not very impressed with the Princess line. Compared to our previous cruises with ... Read more

Emphatically recommended by a friend and cruise travel agent who's been on 35 cruises. This was definitely a challenge for someone with a bad back who sometimes needs a cane. The embarcation in Seattle was probably the worst experience - a ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of it's location and destination. It was an Anniversary/Birthday event. We also thought that it was a reputable cruise line. The steward was the only real bright spot. 30 % crew was nice 40 % marking time ... Read more

The Ruby Princess is very clean ship that we found to be pampering yet exciting. There was always a lot to do and the cruise staff kept it fun. As soon as we boarded in Seattle the cruise director and his staff had us dancing up on deck to ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we wanted to take a Princess cruise. We had enough miles on SW to fly round trip from Seattle. The price was reasonable. We wanted a cruise with less children on board. We enjoyed the entertainment and the ... Read more

A very good trip. Food is not quite as good as some I have sailed on but good for most part. Cabin steward GERARDO is awesome! Can not say enough about him. Dining room service was a bit lacking , our dining staff during assigned ... Read more

We always enjoy a cruise to Alaska. This was no exception and the ship is well kept and comfortable. The Captain kept us right on schedule and for an early in the year cruise the weather was pretty good. Glacier Bay was beautiful. ... Read more

I chose this cruise because Princess was supposedly rated the number one cruise line to Alaska 10 years straight, apparently, no one else was rated or the bar is set very low. This was my third cruise on Princess, second on Ruby, however, ... Read more

I loved this cruise. The Ruby is not a brand-new ship, but it looked great and I never felt like there were cosmetic issues with the ship. We had booked a regular balcony and were upgraded to a premium balcony just a couple days before ... Read more

I was so dissapinted with Princess. At least we had a good itinerary. The only good thing on this cruise was the hot dogs at the grill. Delicious & not salty. Evening food at the main dining room at night was just ok. Buffet food for ... Read more

This was billed as a Wine Country cruise but was really a repositioning cruise with 2 more ports than usual. The extra 2 days were a big draw for us, and the main reason we chose this cruise. The Ruby was the only ship at the San ... Read more

We chose this cruise as an easy get away with friends. We'd last been on the Ruby Princess 2 or 3 years ago and I have beautiful photos of the food then. I'd told everyone one that although we enjoyed Celebrity with it's wonderful ... Read more

Is Princess Cruises losing it? This ship was badly overcrowded, with half-hour lineups to get into the dining room, standing-room-only in the theater, and no seats available in the buffet. A light lunch in the dining room one day took ... Read more
