EXPLORE GROWTH & INNOVATION STRATEGIES THAT WILL IMPACT THE SUCCESS OF YOUR CREDIT UNION
The speed of change in the financial industry is both exciting and frightening. Credit Unions can’t continue to do “business as usual”, but must become flexible and quick. To be able to do this, credit unions must have an understanding of critical changes impacting strategic growth, leadership success and innovation. Participants in this credit union cruise/conference will be given a better understanding of what changes are coming, how to prepare for fast paced change, and how to use change to better serve the members.
Ships have been sailing from Seattle to Alaska since the gold rush. Now it’s your turn to follow in the wake of history on a seven-day cruise vacation filled with glacier-carved fjords, forested islets and quaint ports along Alaska’s famed Inside Passage. Cruise to Alaska from Seattle with Princess.
Don’t miss this opportunity of a lifetime to learn and cruise to some of the most beautiful destinations in North America … Alaska.

About the Ship
Featuring our latest innovations, Ruby Princess is one of the largest Princess cruise ships, with room for 3,080 guests. From her nearly 900 balconies, you can enjoy sweeping views of romantic landscapes across the world. After experiencing the relaxed comfort of our intimate onboard venues, however, you may not want to explore the beauty ashore! The serenity of The Sanctuary® and the casual street café atmosphere of the Piazza may just reel you in for the day, while your nights might be filled with the great tasting food offered in the Crown Grill followed by a first-run film at Movies Under the Stars®
Our Princess chefs are true culinary artists who insist on serving the very finest cuisine – and it shows. Our entire fleet has been inducted into the prestigious Chaîne des Rôtisseurs gastronomic society. Each chef’s menu is creative and the selections change every day. Pair that with impeccable service and you’re in for an unforgettable gourmet experience. The Ruby Princess offers several optional seating times for our Traditional dining rooms along with two incredible specialty restaurants. Other food options are available throughout the ship.
Whether you’re in the mood for a cozy space to sip cocktails with someone special or a swanky place to savor a cigar and make new friends, the Ruby Princess has something for everyone, with 6 lounges ranging from intimate to high energy. Many wonderful choices that will fit whatever you desire.
To say the nightlife onboard is entertaining is an understatement. Illuminating the stage in captivating productions, our performers are some of the most talented musicians, singers and dancers at sea. Our Princess Signature Broadway-Style Shows, lounge performers, street performers, movies and large casino are just some of the entertainment our guests enjoy as they escape completely. Entertainment is non-stop throughout the Ruby Princess – day and night!
