We chose this cruise for the itinerary. Easy non-stop flights from ORD and 3-4 days pre-cruise in Copenhagen. There was a consensus in our group of 9 that the food was excellent. Dining room service warm, friendly and attentive. Ship ... Read more

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

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

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
