  1. We board the Ruby Princess soon and were wondering if a ship tour is available or a behind the scenes tour? We heard others say it’s worthwhile. How would you book this and what is included?
  2. We are supposed to be leaving on a trip to Alaska next weekend, however, one of the people in our party fell and broke their wrist. Initially, she was told she just needed a cast, however. Now she’s been told she needs surgery. The soonest they can do it is during the week of our cruise, however, her doctor also told her she could wait a week and do it when she gets back. She can’t decide what to do and is really torn because she was so looking forward to our trip. We have insurance so canceling isn’t much of an issue... we would be out some $ for the insurance itself, but not too much. She’s in some pain, but she said it’s manageable, although, she has only been laying around the house and not really doing much. I’m concerned that it won’t really start to heal correctly until after the surgery so perhaps it’s worth getting it done sooner. Also concerned she won’t be able to have much fun if she starts hurting more. Has anyone traveled with a broken bone? And if so, what was your experience?

    Why doesn’t Princess sail to Bermuda? Have they ever sailed there? I find it odd that they don’t sail there since so many of their ships are registered there... I had some friends just return from Bermuda and said it was a must visit destination.
  4. You can email her and ask... there’s a link to contact her on her webpage. If she can’t, you might try Harv and Marv as they do have boats that accommodate more than 6 people.
  5. We stay in these locations as often as possible. Never had an issue with noise and find it very convenient to be close to the elevator.
  6. Is there a difference in balcony size between decks? If booking a regular balcony (not premium), are they they same layout in decks 10, 11, and 14? Also, which balconies are covered in mid-forward to forward? Also, during the dry dock, were the TVs replaced? What size TV is in the room now and how does that compare with a mini-suite?
  7. Curious what kind of credit was applied with the elite minutes. We are in the Ruby next month... can you exchange the minutes for credit in the Ruby as well?
  8. We had high winds and rough sea conditions on one of our cruises out of Seattle and it started later in the evening while we were going to bed. We were able to sleep fine and woke up to much smoother sailing. You should be fine... enjoy your cruise!
  9. Agreed... we had him last year and were hoping for someone else this trip. Disappointing... but will still have an amazing trip.

    Deadliest Catch Tour

    Thank you for the information... sounds like something we should do then 😀
  11. Has anyone done this tour recently? Is this tour something that a group of adults would enjoy or is it more suitable for kids? The price seems high, is it worth it?

    We’ve been to Skagway twice and both times we did a bus trip to Emerald Lake. They were both beautiful trips, but as we are now getting ready to visit for a third time. We would like to know if there is anything else that we should see. Are there other excursions that we’ve been missing out on? We are strongly leaning on renting a car and driving to Emerald Lake, but trying to find out what else is worth seeing in Skagway. Thoughts?
  13. Anyone know who the naturalist is on board the Ruby Princess this summer? We will be on it in early July and we’re curious who it is...
  14. You booked this directly thru the cruise line? Was there a name for the tour company used? We were there last summer and had an awesome guide for a tour and her name was Candace as well... wondering if it was the same person. We will be there again in July and would love to go on another tour with Candace as she made it really fun... very informative and told a lot of great stories. Also, what type of bus was it? How many passengers?
  15. That would be great! Have an amazing trip!!! We are so looking forward to ours 😀
