This was the tale of two cruises. The good days were really good and the bad days were really bad. I have been so excited for this cruise but unfortunately we had a norovirus outbreak and I got it the second day of the cruise. Upon ... Read more

We had never cruised this itinerary before and we had some time in April to cruise, so I as a Princess Platinum cruiser I jumped on it. We flew into LAX the day before and stayed on a Princess pre-cruise package. They put us up at the ... Read more

We chose this cruise to go through the Panama Canal and because it had a stop in Aruba which we have wanted to see what it was like. This was our first time on Princess and so there were some differences from the other cruise ship we ... Read more

Embarkation was smooth with no delays. Cabin although on the small side was fine. Our Steward was great. We had very nice dining companions and the food was excellent. We also enjoyed the Entertainment in the Evenings and the Happy ... Read more

Embarkation was slower than usual. At the airport, we learned that there were two Princess ships in port and leaving at the same, so the shuttles were performing double duty from the airport to both ships. Once at the ship, 1/2 the ... Read more

The Ruby Princess and its Crew did not dissapoint. From the moment we entered the port, a wonderful woman named "Reggie" with Princess assisted us and we were some of the first to board. The Ship is beautiful. Very clean and ... Read more

We just returned from the 10 day Mexico cruise today. We have both done many cruises and this was our first time on Princess. Hands down the absolute best cruise both of us have ever been on. Our last cruise a few months back was on ... Read more

We just completed a California coastal 7 day cruise. The ship was a bit run-down in the cabins and public areas. Smooth embarkation and disembarkation process. We were very disappointed in the horizon buffet. Little variety, lukewarm ... Read more

Sabatini is still there! Had a great meal and plan to go there again on the May 31, 2016 trip on the Grand Princess. They do plan to change it to "Share" Curtis Stones new resteraunt at $50. Princess seems to be trying to ... Read more

We are in our 60's and retired. This was our 11th cruise, fourth with Princess. Our last cruise was on the Saphire Princess round trip from Hawaii. Most of my comments are positive. However the dining situation (Anytime dining) was so ... Read more

This was a 2nd cruise on the same line and a very similar itinerary (no stop in San Francisco this time) but on a different ship (Island P 4 years ago). Experience was very poor and one wonders if Princess's standards can drop so much in ... Read more

We have cruised on most of the cruise lines, this being the first time on Princess. The food in the Buffet (for breakfast and lunch) was okay but it was almost impossible to find a table to sit. We frequently asked to sit with ... Read more

Ship was in great condition, deck 7 where I try to walk 2 miles each day had fresh blue and white paint on the walls and all the cabinets used to store life jackets and benches had fresh coats of varnish. Our room was clean and all ... Read more

I grew up in California so there wasn't anything new and exciting, but I did go to Alcatraz for that first time and that was very interesting The worst part for me was that there were over 700 kids on the ship as it was still Spring ... Read more

Overall the ship was ok, a little tired in places but basically clean. The ship certainly catered for the older clientele because out of 3000 passengers there was only 500 under the age of 70 so entertainment included knitting and ... Read more

The ship is quite nice. Very similar to the other Princess ships with some changes, i.e., Crooners Bar is on the port side of the ship instead of the starboard as on most of their fleet. Also Sabatini's is no longer on this ship and now ... Read more

It was our second time on Ruby Princess, but the first cruise to Hawaii. We had a great time overall. The ship is old, but clean and not too big. The piazza is smaller then Regal or Royal Princess. We had balcony room on deck14 and it was ... Read more
