First trip on my bucket list since retirement was always an Alaskan Cruise through the Inside Passage. As a youngster, my family traveled each summer, and a dream trip my father always wanted to take was to Alaska....we never made it back ... 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

We chose this cruise to get a feel of what Princess is all about. We have an Hawaii cruise booked with them and since this is our first time sailing with Princess, we thought we would take this mini cruise to get our feet wet with Princess ... Read more

I was so dissapinted with Princess. At least we had a good itinerary. The only good thing on this cruise was the hot dogs at the grill. Delicious & not salty. Evening food at the main dining room at night was just ok. Buffet food for ... Read more

This was billed as a Wine Country cruise but was really a repositioning cruise with 2 more ports than usual. The extra 2 days were a big draw for us, and the main reason we chose this cruise. The Ruby was the only ship at the San ... Read more

We chose this cruise as an easy get away with friends. We'd last been on the Ruby Princess 2 or 3 years ago and I have beautiful photos of the food then. I'd told everyone one that although we enjoyed Celebrity with it's wonderful ... Read more

Is Princess Cruises losing it? This ship was badly overcrowded, with half-hour lineups to get into the dining room, standing-room-only in the theater, and no seats available in the buffet. A light lunch in the dining room one day took ... Read more

Having sailed many times, this was my first Princess cruise. Wanting an easy and relaxing getaway I chose this cruise for several reasons. The itinerary was perfect with the majority of the cruise at sea. Living in Northern California, ... Read more

This was our 1st cruise on Princess, have sailed on NCL and Carnival before. I knew a lot about Princess and the ship itself and had always wanted to take a Princess cruise. For the most part it lived up to my expectations. First of ... Read more

My sister and I chose this four-day Pacific Coastal cruise for this year's trip because it departed from LA, and visited Santa Barbara. Embarkation was a breeze; Princess really handles both the embarkation and debarkation processes ... Read more

We took this cruise to celebrate my parents' 50th wedding anniversary. I'll start with the parts I was dissatisfied with and move on to the redeeming qualities. The main problem was that our rooms were insanely noisy. I have cruised a ... Read more

I needed 2 solo cruises so I would be Elite. The 5 day cruise to Cabo & the 4 day to Santa Barbara s& Enesenda both interested me. Since I have never been on the Ruby I was interested in experiencing a ship new to me. I was ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we were meeting up with family from 4 states for a Spring Break cruise. The Ship was at full capacity. Embarkation went extremely fast - couldn't believe how quickly we were able to board. The ship was ... Read more

Compared to other cruise lines we have sailed with, Princess provided inferior service, inferior value for our dollar and an overall disappointing experience! While the embarkation and disembarkation were excellent, everything in between ... Read more

This was our first Princess cruise, but our 10th overall. We've mostly cruised HAL and Disney, with a couple of short Royal cruises as well. The short version is that it was a good cruise and we found a lot to like about Princess. Nothing ... Read more

My husband and I have always wanted to take a cruise and decided in January of 2017 to just book it already. I don't know if booking only a couple months prior to the sail date is considered last minute (there weren't many cabins left to ... Read more

We are loyal Princess Platinum members. We haven't been to Mexico since 2009 so decided to go from our Southern Oregon home to find the sun during spring break. Embarkation: Good but not great. Took us about an hour even with priority ... Read more

The Ruby is a beautiful ship! We sailed with 3400 passengers and 1200 crew so it was very crowded at times. Food was OK but not that imaginative and we aren't that picky. Portions in the dining room were larger than most cruises but ... Read more

We choose this cruise for the Princess reputation of service and clean ships, and good food. All three of these attributes were received on our cruise. Food, think filet mignon and lobster on formal nights. Great buffets with a wide ... Read more
