The Ruby princess is a beautiful ship with very comfortable beds (the new heavenly beds). The cruise was relaxing and the food was delicious! I enjoyed the balcony viewing and the naturalist lectures. Also, the comedian was very funny. The excursions were pricey but a lot of fun. The staff was very attentive and the cabin steward did a great job of keeping everything spotless.
I would recommend the a Ruby Princess to anyone considering an Alaskan cruise.
The Golden Princess is a beautiful ship. The piazza and the dining rooms are elegant. I spent a lot of the time on my balcony enjoying the views and the wildlife. Glacier Bay was one of the most beautiful places I have ever been. We really enjoyed the naturalist and his fascinating stories of life in Alaska. Garry, our room steward, was very nice and treated us like royalty. The only thing I would change was the beds. They were hard and lumpy. I would still recommend the Golden for an Alaskan cruise.
