Ruby Princess - September / October 2019 Post 1

 On 11th. September I flew from Melbourne to Vancouver with Air Canada, then on to Seattle the next day. Here I joined Ruby Princess for her final 2019 Alaskan cruise followed by her repositioning to Sydney for the southern summer cruising season. The ship was very comfortable, the quality of food aboard was excellent and, as always with Princess, so were the efficient, friendly and obliging staff and service. I disembarked on her maiden arrival in Sydney on 23rd. October after a fabulous 38 day voyage.

The next adventure begins - leaving Melbourne for the direct flight to Vancouver.

I had an enjoyable lunch at the Vancouver Club.

The club is across the road from the cruise terminal.

Relaxing at the airport hotel after the long flight.

Flying into Seattle where I stayed for another 2 nights before joining the ship.

Enjoying a lovely breakfast as we sail through Alaska’s Inside Passage towards Juneau. With my excellent waiter, Efren.

HAL's Eurodam  arriving followed by their Nieuw Amsterdam (below).

About to sail from Juneau.

My favourite spot in the Vines bar for pre-dinner wine and tapas.
