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

I chose this cruise for the sea days. There were 10 of them and I loved them. Unfortunately, the weather didn't cooperate so many of our Hawaii plans were cancelled. But, the cruise was amazing, despite the weather. I read a review ... Read more

We picked this 15 day cruise because it was the same price as the 7 day cruise around the Hawaiian Islands leaving out of Honolulu. We flew in to LAX a day early and stayed at the Crown Plaza next to the harbor. Great location within ... Read more

We wanted to return to Hawaii and this was the 9th Princess Cruise. I am thinking I will never cruise Princess again. The ship temperature was not for passengers but hauling raw meat. People were wearing winter coats on the ship. The audio ... Read more

First of all this was our second Valentines Day week cruise, and I have come to the conclusion that it is a bad week to go. The cruise was a good price and the 3rd passenger was free and 4th half fare or something such, so ship was fully ... Read more

2nd time on Star Princess and doubt we'll be back. We didn't choose the cruise, it was chosen for us by relatives. Embarkation was smooth up until actual boarding - Princess has a very slow system of taking your picture once you're ... Read more
