We selected this cruise due to living near the port and the affordability. The ship was well maintained, crew was friendly and helpful, food was better than average, and the stateroom was comfortable. We obviously were happy enough, ... Read more

For the most part it was a good cruise. Entertainment was first rate. However, smaller entertainment venues never had enough room to sit. Room attendant (Andrei) was excellent. Cabin and ship was in good condition. Cabin layout is the ... Read more

This was our 13th cruise with Princess and we found this trip to be the most unsatisfying ! It mostly revolved around the food! The food on the other ships has been good and much improved over what we have had the last few years. The ... Read more

If you want to be treated as though you are an inconvenience to employees, do not want to have fun, and want to be yelled at scolded or told no on everything you want to do, you should definitely go on a Ruby Princess Cruise. Unlimited ... Read more

Our suite flooded on the Island Princess during a Panama transit in February. Princess initially offered $100 compensation for 2 days loss of the unit. We pointed out it cost us $1,000 for 2 days. Eventually it was upped to $250 but had to ... Read more

I had never been on Princess before-may not again. Id rather they increased the price of the cruise a $100 and stop trying to sell me things all week! Was disappointing to say the least-not much to do on the ship unless you wanted to shop ... Read more

Let me start off the conversation by saying that this is about our 10th cruise and our second one with Princess. We did the Voyage of the Glaciers in 2013 (June- Island Princess) and had a great time. So we thought we would try Princess ... Read more

We very much enjoyed our trip to Alaska on the Ruby Princess. It really did not feel like there were so many people, except when we had a limited time in port and then EVERYONE wanted to get off at the same time. Plenty of things to do, ... Read more

People who say the food is good on this ship have very low standards! I went on this cruise expecting some really special dining and was SO disappointed. The coffee is colored water. I bought a coffee card due to this. Even then, I had to ... Read more

We've been on seven cruises, including this cruise - five Carnival and one Celebrity. I expected much more from Princess - they're supposed to be top of the line. The food selection was poor. If you don't like fish, you options are ... Read more

Ship and towns (Ketchikan, Juneau and Skagway) are a giant vacuum cleaner for your last cent. Consider the cruise either as transport to additional pay-for tours, or a temporary hold on mundane concerns. There is little to see from the ... Read more
