The Ruby Princess cruise to Alaska delivered a wonderful vacation trip for my wife and I and two of our friends.  The ship staff was pleasant and helpful, the food was copious and delicious and the entertainment was lively and diverse.  We particularly enjoyed the fact that much of the programing involved talks and movies about what we were going to see and do in Alaska.  The programs presented by Shelley Gill and Libby Riddle were informative and fun and the movies prepared by the photography staff were stunning. The visits to Ketchikan, Juneau, and Skagway were filled with interesting excursions and diversions. 

Our only complaint was the rushed nature of the visit to Victoria but even that was handled by the staff very well.  Certainly, Ruby delivered a vacation we will long remember.
