Wanted to experience Hawaii and Pearl Harbor. Ruby is one of our favorite ships in Princess fleet - always fun and very well organized. Wish it was back in the Caribbean where we sailed on this ship 4 or 5 times. Enjoyed the ... Read more

Tired of cruising the Caribbean and skittish about Europe we decided to fly (not a favorite thing of ours to do) to LA and take a 15 day cruise round trip LA - Hawaii. We have never been to Hawaii so this was a great choice. We chose ... Read more

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

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

After several cruises with Disney, a couple with Carnival and one with NCL, this was our first Princess cruise. It was also our first time going to Hawaii and our first time sailing for 15 days and with so many consecutive at-sea days. ... 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

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
