We went with a group of dance friends. This ship had super dance music. We also enjoyed the entertainment and comedians. The dining room dinners were excellent. We were not so impressed with the buffet and lunch options.We are Platinum ... Read more

We're just one day off the Ruby Princess after a wonderful seven day Mexican Riviera cruise. Everything was fantastic. The Ruby shined both inside and out. Carpets and upholstery in both public areas and staterooms looked fresh. The ... Read more

We were a group of 6 friends and family. We enjoyed the warmth in all the Mexican Ports but it was very cool on the other days. We found lots of things to do that interested our group and our days were always full. This was a back to ... Read more

I was looking for a cruise experience that would match nice weather in January with ports I had not been to before. This one fit. Most passengers were 50-75 in age and very well traveled. I enjoyed meeting many new and interesting ... Read more

B2B2B over 21 days to get into some nicer weather. 40+ sailings with Princess and the fantastic friendly crew, food and entertainment made up for a surprisingly high number of rude fellow passengers. The price point for these has cruises ... Read more

I was looking for a relaxing cruise to get away from winter at a good price and this one fit the bill. Also this cruise was a 10 day with stops in La Paz and Loretto, two ports I have never visited. The ship went north, up the Sea of ... Read more

This was our 8th cruise with Princess and the first time on the Ruby. This was a 10 day sailing. As platinum passengers the embarkation was flawless. We were on the ship within a half hour of arriving and went directly to our cabin on ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the stops in the Sea of Cortez, Loreto and La Paz. We have been to Cabo and Puerto Vallarta before. Loreto is a small town of about 14 thousand that gets a large part of its income from tourists, mostly ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it included two ports that we had never been to and it was leaving from the Port of Los Angeles. The embarkation was quick and painless. We had a table for two in scheduled 5:30 dining. Our waitress and ... Read more

Chose a 10 night cruise to the Mexican Riveria due to the good price and number of days for the cruise. Have sailed on the Ruby Princess during its inaugural season in 2008 and liked the ship. The ship was very nice but the food was not ... Read more

Fifteen of our senior community neighbors decided to sign up, so we joined them for a holiday at sea. Although (rough guess) 80% of the passengers were seniors (over 60), the activities and entertainment was directed toward a MUCH ... Read more

The Ruby Princess was at full capacity ,making venues really crowded. We had to be in the showroom at least a half hour early to get a decent seat. Everyone rushes through their dining to go to the early show and makes it hard for second ... Read more

If you are thinking of the Ruby Princess, I beg you tothink again. Our pre-Christmas cruise from LA to Cabo was bad in almost any metric. This was our 9th cruise, and our first (and last) on Princess. The management of people was awful ... Read more

We took a Mexican Riviera cruise over the holiday on the Ruby Princess. Overall, we were disappointed by the onboard experience. Check-in on embarkation day required a 45-minute wait. I had pre-paid for an anniversary package; once ... Read more

We chose this cruise as it was convenient for us on the West coast and as we are a small family of 5 (parents, 2 adult sons & 1 fiancé) it was an excellent way to spend the Christmas holidays. Although embarkation was delayed ... Read more

Just off the Ruby Princess and the 22 December -> 30 December cruise. We traveled as a couple, and would rate this cruise as our most enjoyable - Princess exceeded our expectations on a 100% full ship. The normal Princess demographic ... Read more

The only bad part of the cruise is the embarkation and disembarkation. The ramp getting on and off the ship in Long Beach, California seems like its a mile long. However, at the port of call it was only 5 or 10 feet. I could write a ... Read more

I chose this cruise because it was a quick get away. I have never cruised for less than 7 days so I was surprised how many activities were eliminated on a 5 day. I look forward to Captains cocktail party,lobster"night",Bakes ... Read more

Having cruised on Holland, Royal Caribean and Celebrity in the past, I was excited to see what Princess had to offer. The port (LA) and the duration (5 days) fit well in to our West Coast vacation. Embarkation went smoothly. But ... Read more

Princess is a line we haven't cruised much after a mediocre experience 8 years ago or so. Now I remember why. The Ruby Princess is a fairly nice looking boat. Well maintained. Much cleaner than the Sapphire we sailied on in about ... Read more

We went on Ruby Princess. It was chosen by one of our family members because it was a family reunion. There were 26 people in the group. We flew into Los Angelis a day ahead of when we would embark on the ship. We had a very easy ... Read more
