We just got back from an amazing week on the Ruby Princess, sailing from Seattle to Alaska. I felt compelled to write this review because so many of the reviews I read previously were so negative. They made me nervous to cruise, but I ... Read more

This was our third Alaskan Cruise and we took my 80 year old mother and our 9 year old granddaughter. We chose this because it is an easy cruise for the age range we were travelling with and it was on my mothers bucket list. This was our ... Read more

We choose this cruise and itinerary because we heard that Princess had a great reputation for Alaska. Overall, I had a nearly perfect experience on the ship. The highlights of the cruise were the superior level of service from almost ... Read more

I didn't really choose this cruise, but this was an Alaskan cruise offered from a tour website. Some parts that I didn't like about the cruise - too cold to swim or watch a movie - maybe I was sensitive but could feel some shaking ... Read more

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

This was my first cruise and several years in the making. Overall a four 'star' rating feels very fair to the Ruby, which was a very nice ship with only a couple of issues that would have made this a 5-out-of-5 affair. My boyfriend and ... Read more

We had no problems at embarkation. It is a hassle and I've had better experiences but boarding 3000 passengers lends itself to lines and waiting. I would have liked to meet our room steward and gotten a quick overview of what to ... 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
