Sail Date: Sep 2022
Cabin: Balcony

Although I had been fishing in Alaska a few times, my wife had never been there, and were were both excited to experience the beauty of this State, while the glaziers are still prominent. Nothing about this trip disappointed us.

We were a little concerned about some of the negative comments we read, specifically regarding the condition of the ship, the food quality, and the concern about adequate staffing. I'm pleased to report that the Ruby Princess we were on delivered an excellent experience in nearly every category.

The ship is lovely, and we saw very few signs of serious wear. The were a few deck areas around one of the pools that had some worn spots, and some of the arm rests in the theatre, at the end of rows, were a bit worn at the hinge, but other than that, the Ruby is a beautiful vessel.

Cabin Review


Our cabin was a balcony on the Lido deck (Deck 15) and located just forward of midship. Our previous cruise we elected to get an outside mini-suite, and while a bit larger, we did not feel it was worth the extra money. all details of the room were in nice shape, with the bed being very comfortable. Ample size flat screen TV that had numerous dozens of free movies, about 8 regular TV channels (MSNBC, CNN, BBC, etc.) as well as ship-specific activity channels.

Yes, the bathroom is somewhat small, but adequate, and we had plenty of hot water at all times.

Deck has 2 chairs and a small table, and we enjoyed leaving our patio door slightly open at night, for a fresh breeze and comforting sounds of the waves.

Port Reviews

Glacier Bay

If this was the only place the ship visited, Glacier Bay would still make it worthwhile. Stunning views, and especially since we got to go all the way to the end, whereupon the captain rotated the ship 360 degrees. This place is definitely a treasure.
