We chose this cruise because we were meeting up with family from 4 states for a Spring Break cruise. The Ship was at full capacity. Embarkation went extremely fast - couldn't believe how quickly we were able to board. The ship was ... Read more

We were in Balcony Riviera 703....lovely room, without a sofa, and great balcony. However, I picked one that vibrated constantly....not terribly and you do did get used to it. It was beside the back stairway/elevators and super location ... Read more

The positives: Very smooth embarkation process! The other passengers were really friendly, my cabin steward did a great job, and the ship was not overcrowded. We never felt like we had to wait for anything. The less than ideal factors: ... Read more

This was my first Princess cruise and traveled with my Mom - we typically travel on Holland America but she was able to get a great deal. The ship was larger than I am used to so I was concerned that I was going to feel super crowded but I ... Read more

We choose this cruise for the Princess reputation of service and clean ships, and good food. All three of these attributes were received on our cruise. Food, think filet mignon and lobster on formal nights. Great buffets with a wide ... Read more

We picked this cruise because it sailed out of San Francisco which is our home port and had a good itinerary. The ships public rooms have been renovated and are nice but can be crowded. The balcony cabin we had was good size but needs ... Read more

Wanted to experience the Regal. Kinda disappointed here. Think we'll go back to the smaller, more elegant ships. The spa was in the wrong location and was not up to quality of other ships: the heated stone tables were not heated and ... Read more

We have traveled many times on Princess, but Regal was the best. They have made many improvements to the ship. The overall design is fabulous with many new features: lighted water fountain synchronized to music and video, new ... Read more

We took this cruise out of San Pedro in March 2017. We chose Princess to try something new as usually have gone on RCCL, NCL, Celebrity. It was the worst cruise ever been on and this was my 15th cruise. It was boring, as they had very few ... Read more

Short review of Ruby Princess Just returned from a March 11th 7 day Mexican Rivera. We arrived at port around 1 pm. It took awhile to find a porter for our luggage. They all seemed busy and most just walked by us with empty carts. ... Read more

We traveled as a family of four - parents + 2 teenaged boys. Embarkation was shockingly quick, easy, and painless. It took us less than 20 minutes from dropping off our luggage to opening our cabin door. And we do not have any special ... Read more

We booked Diamond for its itinerary, and it was an 8-day round trip cruise from Singapore to Phuket, Bangkok, and Ho Chi Minh. It was perfect with a few sea days enough for rest and relaxation. Embarkation was terrible! Singapore ... Read more
