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

Our cruise on the Ruby Princess to Hawaii was great. Beautiful ship, competent and friendly staff, wonderful cabin stewardess (Arlene), professional shows (so popular you need to get to the theater a minimum of a half hour early to get a ... 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

We booked the Ruby a few months in advance for the four night Catalina/Ensenada cruise. Originally booked in an interior on Riviera deck, we were upsold to a Caribe balcony about a month out and were happy with our change. The balcony is ... Read more

Cabin A722 Deck 12 balcony, Aft. We loved the new mattresses and bedding. No issues with the cabin or staff. We like the aft section as we hang out by the rear pool and hot tubs. We find it less crowded. We flew to LA 2 days ... 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

We didn't pick this cruise for our first cruise. My family picked it and we decided to tag along. It was a nice ship, the staff were super, and I did enjoy it. But 5 days at sea were a little long for me. My sister thought it wasn't long ... Read more

The Hawaii Cruise is always enjoyable (our third). Weather could have been better on this trip (overcast days seemed the outnumbered the clear days and some rough sea conditions). Kauai, in my estimation, was the best part of the cruise ... Read more
