We chose this cruise because we were meeting up with family from 4 states for a Spring Break cruise. The Ship was at full capacity. Embarkation went extremely fast - couldn't believe how quickly we were able to board. The ship was ... Read more

This was our first Princess cruise, but our 10th overall. We've mostly cruised HAL and Disney, with a couple of short Royal cruises as well. The short version is that it was a good cruise and we found a lot to like about Princess. Nothing ... Read more

My husband and I have always wanted to take a cruise and decided in January of 2017 to just book it already. I don't know if booking only a couple months prior to the sail date is considered last minute (there weren't many cabins left to ... Read more

I chose this Cruise line because there are quite a few older people on the Princess lines. My mother, who was on her first cruise, is 85 and I wanted her aound more people that were her age . She had a great time and loved the cruise. ... Read more

We are loyal Princess Platinum members. We haven't been to Mexico since 2009 so decided to go from our Southern Oregon home to find the sun during spring break. Embarkation: Good but not great. Took us about an hour even with priority ... Read more

The Ruby is a beautiful ship! We sailed with 3400 passengers and 1200 crew so it was very crowded at times. Food was OK but not that imaginative and we aren't that picky. Portions in the dining room were larger than most cruises but ... Read more

We choose this cruise for the Princess reputation of service and clean ships, and good food. All three of these attributes were received on our cruise. Food, think filet mignon and lobster on formal nights. Great buffets with a wide ... Read more

Flew to LA to experience the Mexican Riviera for the first time as we live on the East Coast. Flights and transfers went as planned, all on time and very easy. Boarded the ship and were having lunch before 1p.m. The cabins were ready ... Read more

We took this cruise out of San Pedro in March 2017. We chose Princess to try something new as usually have gone on RCCL, NCL, Celebrity. It was the worst cruise ever been on and this was my 15th cruise. It was boring, as they had very few ... Read more

Went on California Coastal Cruise as it was local and avoided cost of airfare. Aso visited some great California cities and Ensenada. Mostly older couples on board so not the ideal choice if you are looking for the late night parties at ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it was offered as a 'gambling cruise'. In the past, Princess has offered some pretty great benefits to those members (my sister-in-law...not me) who gamble a lot while on board. They have offered a cash ... Read more

This was my first real cruise and I was very impressed! The ship was sparkling clean, far nicer than any upscale hotel I have ever stayed at. The staff was truly wonderful! They seemed to really enjoy their jobs and interacting with ... Read more

Chose this cruise because the port was close by (only 11 hours' drive) and the fare was the right price. Mexican Riviera would not have been my first choice but the price was right and so was the location and dates. I have a high ... Read more

My husband and I are more of the stateroom hugger type. I love sitting on my balcony chair and watch the sea go by. He just loves the peace and quiet. (We were in much need for relaxation time!) We didn't do any excursions this trip but ... Read more

This was my second cruise. Both have had the same 7 Night Mexican Riviera itinerary. As a single school teacher I'm tied to the school calendar and have to be very conscience of budget when I plan a cruise. My first cruise was December ... Read more

Short review of Ruby Princess Just returned from a March 11th 7 day Mexican Rivera. We arrived at port around 1 pm. It took awhile to find a porter for our luggage. They all seemed busy and most just walked by us with empty carts. ... Read more

I've been on three cruises and this one was the worst yet. Our first cruise was with Princess and the second with Carnival both were significantly better than this one. Where do I begin? First, the whole idea of a vacation is to relax, ... Read more
