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

We booked with Princess to Alaska as it was our 20th Wedding Anniversary, and our Cabin was decorated to celebrate this, the extra personal touches made us feel extra special. This is our second cruise with Princess. Princess Ruby was ... 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

We chose this cruise as it suited us for the dates available and for the destinations in ports of call. Quite honestly felt that the standards had slipped considerably in the sanitising department. We had just come off another cruise ... Read more

My wife wanted to go to Alaska. She booked it and I'm glad she did. From the moment we got on the Airplane to Seattle from Santa Ana it could not have been better. We were TSA Pre-Check so that line was quick. Flight was as flights are ... Read more
