We very much enjoyed our trip to Alaska on the Ruby Princess. It really did not feel like there were so many people, except when we had a limited time in port and then EVERYONE wanted to get off at the same time. Plenty of things to do, ... Read more

Flew into Gatwick from Toronto on Air Canada rouge - all went well there, on time arriving 1020 am the morning before embarking. No complaint; an average flight experience, 7 hrs in the air. Customs and immigration went smoothly. Had to ... Read more

Our travel agent told us Princess did Alaska the best, so we chose a 3 day land tour and 7 day cruise. We had no problem boarding the ship; check-in was done while we were on the rail car from Denali. We had our cruise cards in hand as ... Read more

1.We enjoyed our meals in the Horizon Grill (buffet). Service was good and the view out of the large floor to ceiling windows was fantastic. Salad and fruits were very fresh – impressive considering that we were on the Alaska cruise. ... Read more

My wife retired earlier this year, and she wanted either to go to Alaska or to go on a cruise...so we did both. We opted to leave from Vancouver so we'd have less time on the open ocean than if we'd sailed from San Francisco. The ship ... Read more

August might sound like a good time to cruise to the Arctic Circle but it's wise to go prepared. As we discovered, it can be wet and windy, so we were glad we took waterproof over-trousers. We were less prepared for the numerous children ... 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
