chose this cruise because it was a great value on a mid-week cruise. Food was above average although steak I had was poor with very little flavor. I've lived in SoCal all my life so was not a big deal for excursions and ports. However I ... Read more

We wanted a short cruise so my younger sister could join us and this cruise had bargain pricing. We booked a Veranda cabin, then upgraded to a mini suite after they made a bargain offer. Lots of room for a third person. Two port ... Read more

Our suite flooded on the Island Princess during a Panama transit in February. Princess initially offered $100 compensation for 2 days loss of the unit. We pointed out it cost us $1,000 for 2 days. Eventually it was upped to $250 but had to ... Read more

Hello, this morning we disembarked from the Ruby Princess after a one-day re-positioning from Seattle to Vancouver. Our cabin was C409, we paid about $140 each for a balcony, but we had started out booking an inside room. About a month ... Read more

I had never been on Princess before-may not again. Id rather they increased the price of the cruise a $100 and stop trying to sell me things all week! Was disappointing to say the least-not much to do on the ship unless you wanted to shop ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we wanted to cruise Alaska again and also visit family in Seattle. This was the last cruise of the year to Alaska for Ruby Princess and the price was very good. The ship itself was very nice and clean. However ... Read more

Let me start off the conversation by saying that this is about our 10th cruise and our second one with Princess. We did the Voyage of the Glaciers in 2013 (June- Island Princess) and had a great time. So we thought we would try Princess ... Read more

We very much enjoyed our trip to Alaska on the Ruby Princess. It really did not feel like there were so many people, except when we had a limited time in port and then EVERYONE wanted to get off at the same time. Plenty of things to do, ... Read more

People who say the food is good on this ship have very low standards! I went on this cruise expecting some really special dining and was SO disappointed. The coffee is colored water. I bought a coffee card due to this. Even then, I had to ... Read more

We've been on seven cruises, including this cruise - five Carnival and one Celebrity. I expected much more from Princess - they're supposed to be top of the line. The food selection was poor. If you don't like fish, you options are ... Read more

Ship and towns (Ketchikan, Juneau and Skagway) are a giant vacuum cleaner for your last cent. Consider the cruise either as transport to additional pay-for tours, or a temporary hold on mundane concerns. There is little to see from the ... Read more

We went with a group from our local senior center. We had not sailed with Princess before and looked forward to the experience. We were impressed with how fast the boarding procedure went - fast and no long lines! The service on the ship ... Read more

Buffet food was almost uneatable. Breakfast was by fare the worst. Food in main dinning was not much better. In fact the soups were cold, bread was hard and general taste of the main course just not what you would expect.. The coffee was ... Read more
