We went on a seven day cruise to Alaska that departed from Seattle on the Ruby Princess. I just thought I would share my thoughts both good and bad on the experience. • Embarkation/Disembarkation procedures – I have to ... Read more

Pacific Princess was amazing. Clean, friendly ship with very, very good food. We took a "mini suite" because it was us and 2 kids - the bathroom was spacious by cruise standards and the shower pressure amazing! We enjoyed the ... Read more

Our Alaska cruise was perfect, other than a bit of sickness heading to Juneau due to choppy seas. The weather was beautiful and the scenery spectacular. We received great customer service from the Excursion Manager and others during the ... Read more

Most of us waited nearly two hours in line or holding areas to board. This was our 7th cruise and the 4th on Princess. Very disappointing. If you enjoy casino food, you'll like the buffet. However, the buffet personnel were friendly ... Read more

We sailed with Princess on the Golden out of San Francisco for 10 days. As we live in California this just made sense. We did very little traveling off the boat (it clocked around three thousand miles in ten days, wow) This was our ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it left from and returned to our home city. It was a nice cruise but nothing really stood out. The food in the main dining room ranged from mediocre to bad. So much cost cutting has resulted in poor ... Read more

We were a family of 5 in 3 generations traveling in two penthouse suites on the aft of the ship. We're experienced cruisers, but this was our first time on Princess. It was my mother (late 60s), me and my husband (mid 40s), and our two ... Read more

The one thing that comes to mind on this ship was "long lines". This was my first cruise on a ship of 3,000 + passengers and I expected there to be more people. I have been on 9 other cruises and never has the buffet line ... Read more

This was our 2nd cruise on the Pacific Princess (Black Sea two years ago) and our second Alaska cruise (NCL about 15 years ago). So, we knew what to expect on both counts. The Pacific Princess is our preferred size of ship; at 600+ ... Read more

Getting to Seattle from NZ is a big deal. This was our first real overseas experience, so we were very excited. This was our 3rd cruise and one of the tips we had picked up, was if only ever do one more cruise in your life, make it ... Read more

Five previous cruises - Disney and RCI. Late forties, two pre-teen kids. Imagine a beautiful beach. It's a peaceful place to relax and enjoy the ocean. Now imagine that same beach with wandering salespeople (you have probably visited a ... Read more

Overall we had a good experience. I suggest you read the fine print very carefully before arriving at the port. The fine print contains some things that are not allowed to be brought on board. Since we had arrived by plane and had no place ... Read more

Staff was pitiful. Food not even average. Charge for everything. Could not escape rude Children because sanctuary was closed because no one wanted to pay $40 for a lounge chair for a half day. Entertainment was hokey. Our mini suite ... Read more

For our first-ever cruise we took the Ruby Princess to Alaska. The cruise went off without a hitch, embarking and disembarking went very smoothly. When we embarked I made the mistake of trying to walk everywhere myself (foot issues mean ... Read more
