We reside in the SF Bay area and it is easy to take a local shuttle to and from the Pier Parking is very costly, the parking structure is several blocks from the pier and there is no transportation from it to the cruise terminal so we ... Read more

We recently returned from a wonderful 10 day Mexican Riviera cruise on the Grand Princess and were pleasantly surprised by both the quality of food and the level of service. This was our first Princess cruise, although we have been on 25 ... Read more

I chose this cruise by destination and price. I read a lot about the tired ship, but it was clean, had new beds, great food and entertainment and very nice employees. The problems I noted such as stopped up commodes resulting in the ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it was leaving from San Francisco and we live in the area so there was no need for hotels or flights. We also liked the itinerary because it's nice to escape winter for a week sometimes! Getting to the ship ... Read more

This cruise was just the perfect break from weather, working and just taking a few days to relax and unwind. Very easy getting on the ship, we were the first or second folks to get on, bags arrived quickly, and off to lunch we went. No ... Read more

First time cruising with Princes and I was NOT impressed at ALL! It seem like NOT one employee wanted to be there. Not to many smiles from anyone all week and for sure no one went out of there way to go over and above for anything to make ... Read more

We gave the new "club class" a try after reading the promotional materials. We did not find value in paying the extra charges, and here's why: 1. The "canapes" (snacks) that can be ordered the night before turned out to ... Read more

We wanted to see Mexico and thought that a cruise going to Mazatlan, Puerto Vallarta, Cabo San Lucas, and Manzanillo would be a great start. We got back from our 10-Day cruise on the Grand Princess to Mexico this morning. The time off the ... Read more

This is our second cruise with Princess, having sailed this itinerary 4 years ago on the Sapphire Princess. Seas were a little rough getting out of San Pedro, but by day 2, things had calmed. Ruby Princess is a bit smaller and and older ... Read more

Two weeks in Feb 2017, including Valentine's Day and President's Day holidays. As many probably know, there are parents that turn their angel children loose on board ships, while they drink cocktails elsewhere. This leaves the kids ... 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

This cruise opportunity came along at the right time without much forethought and proves that long-time plans aren't always necessary for a great trip. We found it easy to become familiar with our way around the Ruby and felt at home ... Read more

Wanted to get a snap shot visit to Mexico ports and thought the cruise way would be a good way which it was. We cruised previously on the Ruby in 2011 in Carribean as our first cruise and enjoyed that so in part why we chose this one. We ... Read more
