This cruise reminded me a lot of NiagraFalls. Outstanding natural beauty spoiled by a commercial circus. I couldn't believe that the ship actually sponsors seminars on how to spend your money on jewelry when in port. Frequently tables ... Read more

We went with Princess based on the recommendation of our travel agent. She also pointed us toward the Glacier Bay sailing, so the Ruby Princess was our ship! We loved the food in the main dining room. The buffet food was good in a pinch, ... 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
