Off to an Alaskan Ruby Princess Cruise!

Were off from Seattle to Alaska on the Ruby Princess Cruise ship. This cruise is for David, I am not a cold weather type of person, but on a cruise ship, at least I sleep in comfort every night, so it is a great compromise, luxury and ruggedness.

We heard from all our friends that the Princess cruise ships are the best for Alaska, you get to go to Glacier Bay, which we really want to see a Glacier up close.

This is a beautiful and luxury ship, there are many fine details that make this is a higher quality cruise, than the previous cruises we have been on.
This is the spiral staircase down into the main area of the cruise ships with a dance floor and music and a café with stores on each end on both floors. It was really fancy and I felt like royalty.
A bar area off of the lobby.
We enjoyed the explorers club – where we attended many champagne Art shows, but bought nothing.

We did NOT get a balcony, even thought every one told us to. I will report back if this is a huge mistake. I just do not think I can be unhappy here, it feels like a dream life.

Were a Metro Detroit, Michigan, couple – second marriages for both of us – and we dream of retiring early to Travel the World. Follow us while we try and figure out to raise our kids, and save to retire. David is a Robot Programmer, Laura is a Medical Physicist. We put our kids before ourselves for years, saved and ate at home and now after years of all this sacrifice and raising our kids - we are closing in on empty nesting, and we realized we have the opportunity to retire earlier than most and follow our dreams to travel the world. How are we going to do this? Well we have a lot of ideas, but lets see how it works out. Our original retirement date was January 1, 2021. We are reviewing the option of working another 3 years but prefer to keep the 2021 date, either way we will be retired by 55 years old - still trying to figure out how, but working toward our goal everyday, while enjoying each other and our blended family. Follow us to see what happens. All images on this blog are copyright (c)

  1. I have heard this cruise is amazing and you are going to love it despite the cooler weather. I look forward to seeing more photos of this trip. We used to camp often in Alaska when we lived in the Yukon. Fond memories:)
