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

After sailing around Japan last year aboard Diamond Princess, I had high expectations for Princess. My partner and I selected this cruise based on the date and the seemingly favorable reviews of Ruby Princess. Embarkation was simple ... Read more

We went on this cruise with family to celebrate a birthday. My kids (13, 11) had never cruised before, and it had been years since we had been. We all loved it! Our cabin, while small, was just fine for the four of us. I used an over ... 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

This is our second cruise with Princess, having sailed this itinerary 4 years ago on the Sapphire Princess. Seas were a little rough getting out of San Pedro, but by day 2, things had calmed. Ruby Princess is a bit smaller and and older ... Read more

Two weeks in Feb 2017, including Valentine's Day and President's Day holidays. As many probably know, there are parents that turn their angel children loose on board ships, while they drink cocktails elsewhere. This leaves the kids ... Read more

First of all this was our second Valentines Day week cruise, and I have come to the conclusion that it is a bad week to go. The cruise was a good price and the 3rd passenger was free and 4th half fare or something such, so ship was fully ... Read more

This cruise opportunity came along at the right time without much forethought and proves that long-time plans aren't always necessary for a great trip. We found it easy to become familiar with our way around the Ruby and felt at home ... Read more
