Hear a review of a 10-night Canada New England sailing of Ruby Princess. 

Ruby Princess Review | Princess Cruises

November 27th, 2014

"The Canada/New England itinerary had been on our to-do list for several years. We chose this particular sailing because it started in Quebec City, and we really wanted to spend time there pre-cruise (instead of NYC). It also offered more stops in Canada than New England, though it did have the tradeoff of Saguenay/Gaspe vs Saint John NB. This was also our opportunity to book one of the highly desirable aft Caribe deck corner balcony cabins on Ruby Princess. And we wanted to sail during the fall for a chance to see some brilliant fall colors."

Kristin Ladewig from St. Louis, MO recently returned from a 10-night sailing aboard Princess Cruises' Ruby Princess. A sailing that started in Quebec City and ended in New York City. Kristin leaves no stone unturned on this detailed Ruby Princess review.

Quantum of the Seas Review | Royal Caribbean

November 20th, 2014

This week we are broadcasting aboard Royal Caribbean's brand new Quantum of the Seas. On this sailing we put all the brand new features to the test like the RipCord by iFly indoor skydiving, Northstar pod that takes you 300 feet above sea level and the Seaplex, complete with bumper cars, roller skating, a trapeze school and more.

We also push technology to the test on this voyage where we link of with a listener via Skype to take a couple of questions about the ship, dining and why someone should sail it.

Royal Caribbean added to its portfolio of exclusive, groundbreaking onboard experiences that have never before been imagined at sea with a skydiving experience called RipCord by iFLY, as well as the engineering marvel North Star, a glass observation capsule that gently rises more than 300 feet in the air to treat guests to dramatic 360-degree views.  More “firsts” including bumper cars, a circus school with flying trapeze and roller skating can be found inside SeaPlex, the largest indoor active space at sea. There isn't much you can't do on Quantum of the Seas.
