I went on a 7-night Alaska cruise on Ruby Princess. The ship and room are very nice and new. The room has a very nice and big TV. The food is very good, better than the other cruise lines I have been to. The staff are very friendly. The stops are very nice and beautiful. The glacier national park is my favorite day of the cruise.

    This was our 6th cruise on Princess, 3 of which previous cruises were trans-oceanic. The negative first: of all ships on which we have cruised (the above-noted Princess ones, plus a Viking ocean cruise, a Norwegian, and a Celebrity), this ship FELT the most crowded. That took a
