My wife and I chose this cruise to get away for the Christmas holidays and it exceeded our expectations. The ship was excellent and cabins were surprisingly very quiet and comfortable. We originally purchased a standard balcony cabin but ... Read more

The only bad part of the cruise is the embarkation and disembarkation. The ramp getting on and off the ship in Long Beach, California seems like its a mile long. However, at the port of call it was only 5 or 10 feet. I could write a ... Read more

Ruby Princess is a beautiful ship and overall in good condition. Our balcony cabin was pretty much identical to every other Princess balcony we have had. We opted for Anytime Dining which has always previously served us well. Not this ... Read more
