Ruby Princess Cruise Review by lasman
- Sail Date: May 2018
- Destination: Alaska
- Cabin Type: Interior
Beautiful days in Skagway, Glacier Bay and Ketchikan.
Our cabin steward was Raul and he was excellent. Took care of us quite well, kept room in ship shape condition.
Ship entertainment was good with a very funny comedian, excellent musical and dance programs, magic show was good, nature programs with Mike were superb. Food in the cafe was inconsistent. Some meals very good, others not so much. Pizza and ice cream mostly good. INternational Cafe has some excellent dessert choices.
Ship customer service desk was always friendly and solved any minor problems that arose. Although there were over 3,000 passengers on board a full ship, there were plenty of places to find solitude. Promenade deck was many times quiet place to sit and watch the islands and otters go by. Too cold for swimming in pool but movies were excellent outside and in the theatre. Plenty of classy bars and grills to enjoy entertainment and a drink. Several singers were excellent.
The selling of jewelry and other items on ship was sometimes overdone, but just throw away the ads and move on. Did not experience any pressure selling on the decks or aisles. Casino had lots of games and slots. First night, a lady won $500 which made her day.
Overall, we enjoyed our first cruise and would recommend the Ruby for an Alaska adventure
