Embarkation was slower than usual. At the airport, we learned that there were two Princess ships in port and leaving at the same, so the shuttles were performing double duty from the airport to both ships. Once at the ship, 1/2 the ... Read more

The Ruby Princess and its Crew did not dissapoint. From the moment we entered the port, a wonderful woman named "Reggie" with Princess assisted us and we were some of the first to board. The Ship is beautiful. Very clean and ... Read more

We just returned from the 10 day Mexico cruise today. We have both done many cruises and this was our first time on Princess. Hands down the absolute best cruise both of us have ever been on. Our last cruise a few months back was on ... Read more

This was our thirteenth cruise, third with Princess and also third on this same itinerary. We are a late 40s couple with older teenagers. This is the perfect cruise. Several sea days to relax from the stress of work, life, and getting ... Read more

Overall the ship was ok, a little tired in places but basically clean. The ship certainly catered for the older clientele because out of 3000 passengers there was only 500 under the age of 70 so entertainment included knitting and ... Read more

The ship is quite nice. Very similar to the other Princess ships with some changes, i.e., Crooners Bar is on the port side of the ship instead of the starboard as on most of their fleet. Also Sabatini's is no longer on this ship and now ... Read more

This was my 16th cruise on Princess. I enjoyed this trip very much but it is hard not to notice how much things continue to decline with quality and service. I realize competition is much greater and forcing these cost cutting measures. ... Read more

It was our second time on Ruby Princess, but the first cruise to Hawaii. We had a great time overall. The ship is old, but clean and not too big. The piazza is smaller then Regal or Royal Princess. We had balcony room on deck14 and it was ... Read more

We took the 10 day cruise starting March 14th, 2016. We flew in 3 days early, allowing for 2 days in Anaheim at Disneyland before the cruise began. This was the highlight for our 17 year old daughter, who has been wanting to visit the ... Read more

I will stick to items that might help someone along the way. Lots of hangers and hanger space. We like the clothes storage capabilities better than Celebrity, although the cabin seemed smaller than Celebrity. Caribe deck for us since you ... Read more

A fortuitous break in schedules allowed us to jump aboard within 2 weeks of sailing. We haven't cruised on Princess in quite some time (not due to any reason other than we cruised on other lines) and this 10 day itinerary included the ... Read more

Ruby Princess was nice. All but one staff was friendly and helpful. Food was good for the most part. Wish they (and all cruise ships) made "American taste" pastries. Most are more "European" and not sweet enough or ... Read more

Another great Princess cruise! Top marks as always on Princess food, service, decor, ship amenaties, and cleanliness. Best things: This 10-day itinerary was appealing because of the stops in less frequented ports of La Paz and Loreto. ... Read more

We enjoyed this cruise. However, we cannot say that it was great. Stateroom: We had a balcony cabin on the Caribe deck, which meant that the balcony was comparatively big (maybe 70 sq. foot) but the stateroom felt cramped (about 160 ... Read more
