Review summary

Going on this trip of a lifetime with my sister couldn't have been better! Thank you to the Princess Ruby staff. We took in as much nature as possible and appreciated the ability to still go with our own schedule. Although we didn't take in ALL of what was offered to us, we enjoyed the entertainment, the hosts, the servers, and the overall experience. Thank you.

Embarkation

4 out of 5
It was great, but as novice cruisers, we really didn't know where to go but we followed people who seemed to know.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
YES! Rudolpho and Marija in Michaelangelo seat 231 were our favorites! What a team!

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
It was good, but the only issue was the hot tub was so full but only one was open at a time. That's a bit odd.

Entertainment

5 out of 5
Loved Don Bingo, LOVED the entertainers, Micca was entertaining and we religiously watched the Wake show! We didn't go to the comedian nor did we do the clubs, but that was our choice. :)

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Salvador, our steward was always right there when we needed him. The buffet staff was quick and friendly In Michaelangelo, Rudolpho and Marija were the best. They gave us information about our foods and made us feel like we were at home. We ALWAYS enjoyed their teamwork and dedication to us, their guests.

Cabin / Stateroom

It was great, but it was a bit odd that right in the middle of our trip, we have someone come and ask to change our carpet. It was an inconvenience but nothing was offered to us. I was surprised by that but not offended. I'd think that if you put people out of their way after they spent over $2,000, you might toss in a special dinner or something?

Ship tip

Read the Patter! We found that we could schedule ourselves each morning after reading it! It was filled with helpful information and entertainment!

LOVED Juneau! We took the excursion to Mendenhall Glacier and it was great!

Skagway, Alaska

3 out of 5
It was fine but our train was delayed because of another train. It was just long, but I'd suggest others take the train.

Cruise Glacier Bay

5 out of 5
LOVED it! Because we had a balcony room, we turned on the information on our TV and followed along. It was nice not to be around huge crowds and enjoy the beauty.

Ketchikan, Alaska

4 out of 5
Loved our excursion to the Fjords, but we had no idea that we wouldn't be able to explore the city at all! It was such a rush.

Victoria, British Columbia

4 out of 5
LOVED Victoria, but it's too bad it was only for 4 hours. This would be a great 8 hour stop!

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
Very clear and organized.
