3 Best things on our Ruby Princess Alaska Cruise Trip

If you have followed us for even just a few posts, you have noticed we like to keep our posts nice and short and to the point. On our recent trip to Alaska we enjoyed these three things the most:

1- The peaceful, spiritual feelings when out in nature. Whether we were staring at a glacier, hiking thru the woods, or out in the bay watching whales. We loved the outdoor time. Alaska is truly the last frontier feeling for us and we absorbed it all in. So the walk over to the Mendenhall glacier/Nugget fall, the Whale watching tour and the time off the bus ride that took us up the mountains – were all the best. Laura was truly not interested in going to Alaska, and agreed for David, who wanted Alaska for years, but Laura became a true believer in Alaska and we both cannot wait to return.

2- The Ruby Princess Cruise ship was beautiful with many high end accents everywhere. Compared to Holland America it was decadent. There was a greater cross section of people on the Princess Cruise, all age ranges and style and we preferred that over Holland America significantly older cruise ages. The Food was superior on the Holland America Ship, but both ships were really tasty.

3- The time together. We are still really in love and find each other interesting to be around, we are each others best friends and playmates. When we are at home, we are so busy with work and kids and household chores. It was nice to enjoy each other again.

We are back to real life, and going to catch up on a few posts, but still enjoying our trip and the memories.

  4. What a lovely vacation! It looks and sounds absolutely amazing!
    We went on a cruise to AK for a family reunion when I was in my early 20s. I loved it! It would be really great to go with my husband someday. I’m adding it to our bucket list for sure.
    I love that you are so in love! It’s wonderful! I heard of at least 3 friends getting divorced this week. It was so sad. I’m so happy to see that you are such a happy couple! It’s encouraging and hopeful and definitely sparks joy!

    1. Camper, it was INCREDIBLE. We really loved it & will be going back for sure. We heard the Camper parks there are booked two years out, so you should consider looking into it really early if you are going. We would go back and car tour it.

  12. Thanks for sharing your experiences on Alaskan Cruise..
    Alaska however looks quite hot and devoid of ice. When can one find the full force of Polar Winters in Alaska?

    1. Alaska is weird hot in the summer and VERY cold in the winter, so extreme opposites. Snow so much you cannot leave the house for weeks.

  13. The Summer sounds scary to me.
    The Winter I would simply Love in Alaska.. πŸ˜β„οΈ

  14. I would love that.. ❄️❄️❄️❄️
    It would mean more time to relax.. ☺️
    And I believe a snow Blizzard wouldn’t last for more than 2-3 days. After the blizzard ends, I would be left with a fairytale dreamland in Ice to enjoy to my heart’s content.. ❄️❄️❄️❄️
    I had been to Russia during Winters. I went to the Arctic Coast of Teriberka in the dead of the Polar Nights.. the colder, the better for me.. ❄️❄️
    I believe the real cold arrives during January. Is that true?

    1. Yes, even in Michigan where I am located, but we rarely get snowed in, sometimes, and you have to be prepared. So yes, if you love being snowed in to reflect and relax, then Alaska in the winter is the place, rugged and locked in.
