Hello, this morning we disembarked from the Ruby Princess after a one-day re-positioning from Seattle to Vancouver.
Our cabin was C409, we paid about $140 each for a balcony, but we had started out booking an inside room. About a month and a half before the cruise, the prices dropped hard and I was able to kick us up to a balcony for the same price we had originally booked the inside for. Just before we left, the prices for an inside were around $70 CDN. I am happy with the costs of the cruise as I believe we got our money's worth for the trip.
We live in Vancouver and had debated going down to Seattle the day before the cruise and stay in a Hotel, but with every decent Hotel costing in the market of $300-$400 for the night (Saturday), we decided to slum in it on a Greyhound during the early morning before the cruise.
No complaints about the cabin. Standard Balcony cabin with just the basics.
Very large balcony but we were looking right down on someone else's balcony and someone could look right down on ours. Big balcony but not private.
