We were excited to go back to Alaska and visit new ports. Icy Straight Point was a great place. We loved being able to walk through the forest up to the shopping. Prince Rupert was OK - not really anything to do if you don't take an excursion. If they want to make this a more permanent port they need to put in more tourist shops. But the Fire Dept Museum and nice and I was able to get a ...

We had so much fun taking Princess North to Alaska again. Star, Grand, now the Ruby has taken us to visit popular ports of call in Alaska. Due to covid our ship was not full. Almost full but not entirely. Sailing 07/22. I am not sure if capacity was limited due to staff availability or simply not enough staff ready to get to full levels. My DW and I are vaccinated (not boosted). We got vaccinated ...

We chose this cruise to take our adult grand children to Alaska. They seemed to endure it as it was their first cruise ever. We, on the other hand, have cruised with Princess 9 times previously. This cruise was a complete disaster for us. We were charged for drinks we DID NOT ORDER; Waited over 45 minutes to have our order take in two of the seated area restaurants; drink orders, when we received ...

I picked this cruise because I could drive to the port and not have to fly. The ship was small, very few things to do, little to no intertainment. The ports where not impressive. Food was sub-par. A cruise line knowing they are taking you to a cold area should have more intertainment inside if you didn't want to know how to fold a dollar bill in a craft project you where watching reruns of love ...

I had previously sailed on the Ruby Princess and was really impressed by the service and the overall look of the ship. But I was unpleasantly surprised when I arrived at Pier 27 on July 19,2022. What i found was a line more than three blocks long to get on the ship. The most worrisome issue was the line was in the sun for hours and was not moving at a great pace. This indicated to me poor ...

Went with a friend who uses a cane and the elevators were timely and efficient. Had perfect weather in Juneau, Ketchikan, Icy Straight Point. Prince Rupert was a bit rainy but the shops were excellent! The dining room had excellent fresh bread at every meal and all dishes were good to excellent with a broad variety. Excellent coffee in International Cafe with many selections, ...

We choose this cruise because our dad wanted to see Alaska, Juno and Glacier Bay. We sailed on this same ship in 2016 on a Mexican Rivera cruise. The ship is dated and needs updates. The itinerary is wonderful and perfect. The staff is what made this cruise a truly wonderful experience. Prior to the cruise, I had great difficulty using the website, the chat option and the customer service ...

Hiccups and hurrahs

Post-Covid, the cruise industry is not what is was before. It is evident that cost-saving measures have been implemented and ships are not full, whether from the difficulty of getting sufficient crew or as a covid precaution is hard to say. Our cruise began with two BIG hiccups. The ship docked late (we were told) and so passengers disembarked late and new passengers were left standing outside ...

I play in the onboard casinos on Princess, so the casino dept comps me cruises. This was a comped cruise. I received an interior cabin and chose one next to the elevators in the back of the ship. The noise from the elevators was not too bad. I went to bed late and woke up early, so the activity was mainly in the mornings and acted as my alarm clock. Since my wife is out of vacation time, ...
