August 2016 - Ruby Princess to Alaska - Inside Passage

WOW Ruby Princess Cruise

My wife and I recently completed an Alaskan cruise on the Ruby Princess. WOW, what a wonderful experience.  I cannot say enough superlatives regarding the ship, staff, and cuisine.  Everything was perfect shipboard wise. The weather was not so cooperative but the Ruby Princess' crew members and the Juneau photo safari and whale watching excursion more than made up for the weather.  I would highly, highly recommend that you consider the Ruby Princess for your Alaskan cruise.Big Smile

ichall1952's Tips

Victoria, British Columbia - Beautiful city but you will need more time to see than you have on a cruise. It's definitely a place to visit separate from a cruise. Butchart Gardens are beautiful but not enough time on a cruise tour.
Juneau, Alaska - If whale watching season take an excursion. Nice small city.
Seattle, Washington - Ride public transportation & stay close to the airport if you want to save money. Forget renting a car, use the train in and out of the downtown area. Don't miss Space Needle and the Market (early morning)
Ketchikan, Alaska - Nothing spectacular about the town unless you're shopping for jewelry. Don't take a paid excursion for the town, easy walk all over, not very big.
Skagway, Alaska - Watch the weather forecast before booking a train excursion. You can book in Skagway if need be. Best place to buy a knife.
Ruby Princess Ruby Princess - Book mid-ship deck 14 if possible. Rotate meals between dining rooms and buffets. Make sure to read dining menus daily as they change. Enjoy the desserts at the Piazza International Cafe. Best to eat late at all locations because they can be crowed between opening and up to 2 hours after.
