first to Alaska and first time on Princess

Sail Date: August 28, 2016

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Ruby Princess was fabulous; Juneau and Skagway were really good days. Effectively 3 days at sea on a one week cruise 1 day too many. The port call at Victoria was so short that it should either be eliminated or time added (4 hours is too short). Balcony cabin exceeded expectations. Would recommend this ship and Alaska.

"Specialty Dining for 2" bene almost not worth the hassle; it doesn't pay for the full cover charge for 2 people in any specialty restaurant; this fact was discovered at dining. Multiple visits to passenger services to have voucher value posted to account.

Otherwise, good cruise.

Cabin / Stateroom
Cabin larger than other balcony cabins on other cruise lines; very nice.

In Da Vinci dining room, look to head waiter Ion if you have any issues to resolve.
