After taking a couple of hours to embark with great excitement we were not disappointed. When we arrived at berth 93 at LA we handed our cases to the porter and next time we saw them they were safely stored outside our cabin. We had a ... Read more

After reading previous reviews of the ship, our expectations were very low. This was our 29th cruise and 3rd with Princess. I had sworn them off after our last cruise on the Crown, but the price and convenience for a quick get-away was ... Read more

Arrived for Embarkation early and boarded with no delays. Parking at San Pedro was plentiful and we parked the car just 100 yards from the ship. My first time on the Ruby. She's prepping for a re-make in a few weeks and it was obvious ... Read more

I found most of the staff to be great and the food ranged between acceptable and good depending on the day. I was not impressed to find two extra beds attached to the walls in our already tight interior stateroom (this was not mentioned ... Read more

The service inboard was very inconsistent I was shocked considering all bar staff gets paid only on the 15% that gets added to all drink orders. That being said, make sure you tip extra on your bar tab, they really rely on it. The ... Read more

We were in cabin D625. We have many problems that I need to share. First, upon arrival we discovered a used tooth brush on the shelf in the bathroom. Now in and of itself not a big deal. But let us look deeper. Because if someone cleaned ... Read more

I've been on Princess before and loved it, but this cruise was not like that. I had reserved a wheel chair for embarkation and they didn't have one for me. Our cabin steward never referred to us by our name, we were lucky to get a hello ... Read more
