Ruby Princess achieves something most 3,000-plus-passenger ships can't: A feeling you've just come home. (Think a high school reunion, only with people you just met.) It's easy to strike up a conversation with ...

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

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

We went with a group from our local senior center. We had not sailed with Princess before and looked forward to the experience. We were impressed with how fast the boarding procedure went - fast and no long lines! The service on the ship ... Read more

Buffet food was almost uneatable. Breakfast was by fare the worst. Food in main dinning was not much better. In fact the soups were cold, bread was hard and general taste of the main course just not what you would expect.. The coffee was ... Read more

I took this cruise with two family members. For two of us this was our 2nd cruise (first on Princess) and the third person it was their first cruise ever. We all had been wanting to do an Alaskan cruise and Princess was chosen for price ... Read more

I wished to travel to Alaska, so after a couple of years of thinking of it I chose an organized trip that offered this possibility… a very pleasant cruise that would take me to Alaska. For me the time spent offshore was too ... Read more

We were on the July 31st to August 7th 2016 cruise. Our first cruise! Embarkation was a breeze. I expected something much different and was pleasantly surprised by the ease. We were on the Baja deck in a balcony cabin. It was ... Read more

Just back today, August 7 from inside passage, Seattle, Ketchikan, Tracy Arm, Juneau, Skagway. Embarkation and surprisingly Disembarkation were both very smooth. The "cruise" in and of itself was great. Staff was 99% ... Read more

This was my first cruise, and was taken as a family vacation. We were a party of seven and ages ranged from 30-60, which seemed about par for the ship. Apparently our sailing had more children than usual and the announcements during ... Read more

I am being generous. We had all sorts of issues, starting with my booking 21 family member from 9 yrs old to 79 years old, all of whom had free wine from our travel agent. She bought the cheapest red and they were out of it the entire ... Read more

This was a disappointing cruise. While there were some highlights, most were not due to Princess or the vessel itself. The boarding was wonderful. The staggered boarding couldn't have gone better. We arrived at out appointment today ... Read more

Intro: it was just myself and my husband traveling on this cruise; we are in our mid-50s and live in Texas. While we wanted to see Alaska, we also enjoy the "onboard experience" that a cruise provides and the Ruby had ... Read more

Splurged on suite, both for extra room and perks web site advised we would receive - so we paid more than double high end cabin rates. Loved our room steward and restaurant maitre d, waiter and assistant waiter. Most employees unaware of ... Read more

We sailed as a family of 9 to Alaska. We had a one year old grandchild, our 5 kids (mid 20's to 30), my husband and I (50's), plus my elderly mother (80). I was worried before we left that our wide range of interests and ages would leave ... Read more

My family went on this cruise because we wanted to see something completely different. This was our first ever cruise on Princess, and this will be our last for sure. To begin, if you have children under the age of 18, there is not very ... Read more

My wife and I had an awesome time on the Ruby Princess. We were celebrating our 30th anniversary and splurged on a balcony cabin. The weather was unbelievable. Calm seas, warm temperatures, and cloudless skies every day but one. No ... Read more

We chose this cruise for price and supposed value. This was my fifth cruise so I have something to compare it to. The ship itself was ok, and the balcony view was worth it. The crew was mostly curt. The Drink deal they try to sell you for ... Read more

We had made flight arrangements through Princess with their EZ flight program, out of Denver. This was the first concern. We tried to ascertain our seats but couldn't because this was not the policy. We had to check in with Delta 24 hours ... Read more
