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

I found out a few weeks before departure that Princess Cruises was going to launch the "Club Class Dining" on this particular cruise to Mexico. In my prior experience with Princess I had felt that the main dining service was the ... Read more

Ruby Princess is a beautiful ship and overall in good condition. Our balcony cabin was pretty much identical to every other Princess balcony we have had. We opted for Anytime Dining which has always previously served us well. Not this ... Read more

We had been on several other vacations this year including Europe and Hawaii, but when this cruise came along at a good price, we decided to book. Princess is one of our favorite cruise lines so we were looking forward to a good ... Read more

Having only cruised on Carnival I wanted to try a more "upscale" cruise line. Based on their reputation I expected much more. All things being equal I'd go back to Carnival or try another line. I wont say that I'll never go ... Read more

Great balance of relaxation time, fun time and port time. Traveled with my brother and his wife and we were able to connect our balconies for afternoon happy hour meetups on our decks. The food was fantastic on this trip. And I've been ... Read more

We have always cruised on Princess Cruise Line. Embarkation was pretty painless. The ship is beautiful, we had a mini-suite and it was very comfortable. We did anytime dining which gave us flexibility and we shared table with other ... Read more

We chose this cruise to take our parents for their 60th wedding anniversary. It had always been their dream to do this cruise. They are in their mid 80's and it was a cruise with the days at sea that they love. Princess provided a lifetime ... Read more

Btw this was my 12th with princess, 23rd overall and 235 sea days under my belt. Our experience in the main dining room was such; that after two attempts we just quit going and relegated ourselves to the buffet and room service. The ... Read more

Day 1 - San Pedro / At Sea Arrived about 2 pm, check in and boarding were efficient and straight forward. We had easily found our cabin (with balcony) by 2:30 or so and dropped our hand luggage. Our steward stopped by and explained ... Read more

We have cruised multiple times on Princess, but this is the worst cruise experience we've ever had. We opted for Anytime Dining, since Princess instituted "Club Class" which takes over one of the anytime dining rooms from 5:30 - ... Read more

Easy access by plane. The Da Vinci dining room was like a Five Star restaurant. Our waiter was Benjamin--his attitude and extraordinary abilities made the evening meal so very pleasant. Even the buffet on the upper deck was wonderful. ... Read more
