My wife and I booked this cruise back in March. It was very much worth the wait! In the past we have done two cruises with Princess from New York to Halifax and back (7 day itineraries). This time we wanted to do the ten day itinerary from New York to Quebec. What a wonderful cruise it was. We were able to see some new ports of call in Portland, Maine, Sydney, Nova Scotia, Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island and the best and most amazing port of call, Quebec City. We also had stops in Newport, Boston, St John's and Halifax along with one sea day.

To give you a brief description of us, my wife and I are in our early 60's and are both retired. We took our first cruise to Alaska back in July of 2006 and have been hooked ever since. We have now cruised 21 times, 19 with Princess and 2 with Norwegian Cruise Line. Princess is a perfect choice for us, we have never been disappointed.

Our cruise journey started on Monday Sept 22 (day 1) with a non stop flight from Milwaukee to New York's La Guardia Airport on Southwest Airlines. We then caught a taxi cab to the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal ($45.00 with tip) to board the Ruby Princess for our 10 day adventure. We arrived early around 11:00 AM. The check in process went smoothly after waiting maybe 30 minutes. We did spend another hour in the elite lounge where we waited till 12:45 to board. It wasn't a bad wait as the time went fast talking to other passengers. Once onboard, we headed to our cabin to drop off our carry on bag. Most cabins were still being cleaned and made up for our cruise at this time. The previous cruise had just arrived from a 14 day cruise across the North Atlantic. New cruise personal were coming and others leaving the ship. The Ruby did not depart till after 7:00 PM that evening. We were so happy about this late departure so we could see the sunset on New York and the amazing skyline lite up that night. I was able to capture some great pictures that evening on my camera.
