We were delighted to do round trip cruise out of San Pedro but disappointed in changes since our last princess cruise. We either book mini suites or the Caribe deck for its large balcony. The Ruby was ...

Saw the Northern Lights, we were extremely lucky

Everything was great, except the room we chose. The room itself was good. Very clean, large enough enjoyed the balcony, room steward was excellent but the location was under the buffet. It was like a basketball ...

Worst Dining Room food ever on Princess

We chose this cruise because we could sail to Alaska for 12 days plus no airfare as it left from Los Angeles. This was the main factor for choosing Princess. Having sailed many times with Princess we were ...

FELT LIKE a semi glamorous Motel 6 at sea

We chose this cruise because it left from the Port of L.A. and returned to same Port plus we liked all of the ports that were visited over the 12 days. We live in L.A. so this made it very convenient. The ship ...

1st and last time on Princess

We had a wonderful cruise because Alaska is gorgeous, however the Ruby was the worst ship I've sailed on. Not only does the ship appear old and tired, so does much of the crew. Our steward didn't address us by name, ...

First ship of the season to Alaska. Weather was fantastic

While the Alaska Cruise was pleasant & enjoyed, here are a few thoughts on our experience. Parking: $18/day is overpricing for parking. Other Airports only charge $10/day long term and provide a shuttle. No ...

For our 50th anniversary, we took a 12-day Princess cruise to Alaska originating in Los Angeles. From the moment we stepped aboard the 5-star Ruby Princess, we were surrounded by helpful, smiling faces of staff. ...

Like this ship! Staff was outstanding

I had never been to Alaska (or Canada) before, and I already had experience with Princess, so we booked this cruise. First off, the ship was really nice, way better than the Star Princess (which desperately needs ...

We chose this cruise to try out a 12 day cruise and we loved it! We have never been to Alaska and we enjoyed it but probably wouldn’t go there again as we are used to sunny weather. The Star Princess is by FAR ...

Golden Princess. If I could, I’d give it 0 stars

The one good thing: We didn’t have to fly, since it left from our home port. The food, service, and atmosphere rival Carnival Cruises. Very disappointing! The balcony cabin was very small. The Baja ...

The cruise was very good, and the roundtrip LA to La Alaskan cruise was a very easy choice as no airfare for us. The visit to Glacier Bay was spectacular, and perhaps will not always be here to enjoy. The ship is ...
