I loved the charms on this ship! I collected them all!
The Medallion allows you to keep tabs on your shipmates! (see my husband in the lower right corner!?)
It was brilliant to have nearly every dish at the Lido deck's Horizon Court in single-serve dishes.

"Horizon Court: verity of choices continued to be less than on earlier cruises, but the quality of what was served, with some exceptions, continues to be good.Main dining rooms: similar to observations of the Horizon Court...."Read More

I have FCC left over from Covid cancelations so it is a use it or loose it deal. I wanted to try Galveston port which I understand Princess has recently returned to. Last time here was 2007 for me. So I booked everything rom airfare to hotel, transfers, cruise, Princess plus package, no insurance. Flew from Chicago Saturday, day before. Went to luggage, man with a Princess sign waiting for me also ...

We were two adults in our 50s with our two adult children in their 20s. We had two interior cabins on different decks. Really nice trip. Embarkation was smooth. Get your medallion ahead of time; it saves you a lot of time at check in. The ship is classy and clean. The rooms are standard cruise cabins and have all you need. All Princess employees were pleasant and willing to help with any ...

We did the Western Caribbean out of Galveston on December 18 on the Ruby Princess, and after something in excess of two-and-one-half decades cruising, mostly on Princess but other lines as well, this was, by far, the least inspiring and most disappointing cruise we have ever done. As always on a Princess cruise, the front-line folks - our Cabin Steward, Waiters and Assistant Waiters, the ...

Took Alaskan Cruise in July 2022 on Ruby, had the worst experience. Embarkation was nightmare, had to wait for about 3 hours to board. With COVID epidemic in full swing, this was a traveler's nightmare. Firstly, peak summer, long lines and fellow passengers in close proximity. Took even more than an hour to get to the boat deck from Port. Due to this frustrating experience, promised never to use ...

Easily the worse cruise we've had with Princess. The many cutbacks by Princess made for a less enjoyable cruising experience. For example, enrichment presentations and guest speakers were completely devoid. It took 3 days to get the AC in our cabin repaired. Guest services was unresponsive and argumentative. Throughout the cruise, the sink drain leaked on the bathroom floor. The motion ...

We have sailed with Princess in the past and were anxious to get back on board. We left San Francisco rather late (not sure what the holdup was), burt experienced going under the Golden Gate Bridge at twilight! How crazy was that! Then it was off into the wild blue seas, which got my husband completely seasick for the next two days. Regardless, the Medallion system worked great, although I ...

I'm not sure what happened to the Ruby since I cruised on her in July of 2022, but something sure changed. Dining: Crown Grill: We ate there 2 times, and the first time I ordered the Filet Med Rare - It was the toughest piece of meat I've ever eaten......tasted like a cheap piece of sirloin steak. It was cooked perfectly, but man was it tough. The 2nd time I ordered the Porterhouse ...

We chose this cruise because we have sailed to Hawaii five times previously and we love all the sea days. It is also a great way to get a taste of the islands: Oahu, Kauai, Maui, and Hawaii. As an added bonus, our favorite Hawaiian ambassadors Brian and Rowena Vasquez were onboard, teaching ukulele, hula and a wide variety of Hawaiian-themed crafts. They embody the Spirit of Aloha and really ...

Great cruise experience. Helped by great weather. Were able to sunbathe for all but the last day. Despite embarcation being at the old pier we found it seamless and worth the effort on the app up front. The app and wifi worked perfectly. Food was superb in the MDR we used the one near vines. Good quality. Perfect portion.sizes and brilliant service. We went to Sabatinis twice. Food and ...
