7 Night Alaska Inside Passage With Glacier Bay (Seattle Roundtrip)
Sail Date: June 19, 2016
Ship: Ruby Princess
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Cabin Number: E216
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 1 year ago

the ship is big, impressive in its accoutrements with a crew/ service staff that is exceptional. Crew friendly, helpful, well-trained and attentive. Ship piazza, theatre, longest, gym, spa, pools beautiful. Main dining room food delicious and presentation excellent. Buffet dining and cafes around ship very disappointing. Poor food quality from hamburger/hot grill and pizzeria.  Loved that there was a self- service laundry as the valet prices were exorbitant (I.e. 1 pair blue jeans = $12.95).


stateroom size awesome. As a couple we had plenty of room to move around, closet was huge. Bathroom only big enough for one. We had obstructed view window and will opt for balcony next time around.


adequate options for things to do on board ship. Thankfully we were no where near children's areas and there were 2 adults only pools. 


Good ode value for our money and as an intro to cruising we were happy enough that we are planning our next cruise.

Did not feel crammed or claustrophobic. Room steward made sure our room was refreshed every few hours. Very clean and comfortable.

Ship Tip

Take a power strip! There is only 1 outlet in the cabin and if you need to recharge phone, tablet, laptop, etc you will want access to electricity!
