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

We enjoyed our stay in Santa Monica for a few days before the cruise, and then boarded the Ruby Princess. Here's some feedback: The embarkation process was not good. We sat in a huge room for about 2 hours before they started boarding. ... Read more

My wife and I have been on a dozen cruises on several of the standard cruise lines. This was our fourth time in Princess. We found that over all service is diminishing. The food in the dining room was adequate but the service was not up ... Read more

Just came back from the 7 night cruise to Mexican Reviera (Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlan and Cabo) and my first Princess experience in 9 cruises overall. I have to say Princess is a notch above in several respects. They seem to be better ... Read more

Embarkation went very smoothly. We thought it weird that you have to bring life jackets to muster drill. The buffet was one of the best we've experienced (we are huge royal Caribbean fans). The pizza everyone seems to love really isn't ... Read more
