Some friends and I were part of a group of quilters, sewing every at sea day plus one port day down in the Botticelli dining room. This was our first time on the Grand and we loved it. The beds are comfy, shower stall a little small, but ... Read more

Overall, the ship was amazing. The dining was a WOW!! Although the entertainment was average, with only 4 or 5 musicals, the ship still kept our family of 4 busy throughout the whole day. The sporting and fitness facilities on the ship ... Read more

If you want to be treated as though you are an inconvenience to employees, do not want to have fun, and want to be yelled at scolded or told no on everything you want to do, you should definitely go on a Ruby Princess Cruise. Unlimited ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it included Alaskan waterways and land cruise. Departure city of Vancouver was a plus, so we arrived a day early to tour and that was not enough. Disembarkation went fast and smooth because we chose a city tour ... Read more

What a great cruise. We did the land portion of the cruise/tour first and we are glad we did. Starting with 2 days in Fairbanks, followed by 2 days at the Denali Lodge and then on to the ship, was much better than doing it the other way. ... Read more

I'm not sure where to begin... the food or the constant Sewer smell? My husband and I have cruised to Alaska 2 years ago with Celebrity Solstice and being on this ship was hell compared to our last trip. I don't typically write reviews ... Read more
