My sister booked a family cruise for her birthday. There was a total of 8 in our party. For some of us, this was our first cruise, and we found it to be a "Wow" experience. The ship provided different attractions and ... Read more

Ruby princess is 0 star. My family and I enjoyed to go to cruise trips(Bahama with Disney, Mexico Riviera and Caribbean with Carnival), but we wouldn't use cruise anymore because of this terrible experience. I don't know where to begin! ... Read more

We had an option for a cruise up to 15 days so took this one because we had not been to Hawaii since 1989 and wanted to go back. We had a balcony which I highly recommend as it makes all the difference and I am a person that gets sea ... 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

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
