First time with Princess (the Emerald Princess). Cruised Alaska June 4, 2017. The ship was fine and the food and bars were great, but the entertainment was a bit lacking; focusing too much on passenger participation, like game shows and ... Read more

This was our 9th cruise with Princess, and second on the Emerald, and 4th Inside Passage to Alaska. I was more disappointed in this cruise than in the past. Because of the "Club Class" they would not allow you to eat lunch in ... Read more

We returned from our Alaskan Ruby Princess Cruise, out of Seattle on May 27. It was a great week and well worth the time and planning. However, we were not very impressed with the Princess line. Compared to our previous cruises with ... Read more

Emphatically recommended by a friend and cruise travel agent who's been on 35 cruises. This was definitely a challenge for someone with a bad back who sometimes needs a cane. The embarcation in Seattle was probably the worst experience - a ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of it's location and destination. It was an Anniversary/Birthday event. We also thought that it was a reputable cruise line. The steward was the only real bright spot. 30 % crew was nice 40 % marking time ... Read more

The Ruby Princess is very clean ship that we found to be pampering yet exciting. There was always a lot to do and the cruise staff kept it fun. As soon as we boarded in Seattle the cruise director and his staff had us dancing up on deck to ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we wanted to take a Princess cruise. We had enough miles on SW to fly round trip from Seattle. The price was reasonable. We wanted a cruise with less children on board. We enjoyed the entertainment and the ... Read more

We always enjoy a cruise to Alaska. This was no exception and the ship is well kept and comfortable. The Captain kept us right on schedule and for an early in the year cruise the weather was pretty good. Glacier Bay was beautiful. ... Read more

I chose this cruise because Princess was supposedly rated the number one cruise line to Alaska 10 years straight, apparently, no one else was rated or the bar is set very low. This was my third cruise on Princess, second on Ruby, however, ... Read more

I loved this cruise. The Ruby is not a brand-new ship, but it looked great and I never felt like there were cosmetic issues with the ship. We had booked a regular balcony and were upgraded to a premium balcony just a couple days before ... Read more

I had never been on Princess before-may not again. Id rather they increased the price of the cruise a $100 and stop trying to sell me things all week! Was disappointing to say the least-not much to do on the ship unless you wanted to shop ... Read more

Let me start off the conversation by saying that this is about our 10th cruise and our second one with Princess. We did the Voyage of the Glaciers in 2013 (June- Island Princess) and had a great time. So we thought we would try Princess ... Read more

A good cruise; not a great cruise. Ship - This particular ship had really bad vibrations. I was in the Navy so I know the difference between motion due to the sea and the unusual. This was unusual. It was so bad we couldn't sit at the ... Read more
