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

Received this cruise as a free gift from cousin's bf. He received it as a business promotion, (not affiliated with the cruise line.) I really enjoyed the comedian, and the broadway type musical shows, as well as "The Voice of the ... 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

I did so much research on this site before my cruise, that I absolutely want to contribute. This was my first cruise on Princess, only second cruise overall. I was surprised that most of the time it did not feel like a sold out ship of ... Read more

We're just one day off the Ruby Princess after a wonderful seven day Mexican Riviera cruise. Everything was fantastic. The Ruby shined both inside and out. Carpets and upholstery in both public areas and staterooms looked fresh. The ... Read more

We were a group of 6 friends and family. We enjoyed the warmth in all the Mexican Ports but it was very cool on the other days. We found lots of things to do that interested our group and our days were always full. This was a back to ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it included two ports that we had never been to and it was leaving from the Port of Los Angeles. The embarkation was quick and painless. We had a table for two in scheduled 5:30 dining. Our waitress and ... Read more

The Ruby Princess was at full capacity ,making venues really crowded. We had to be in the showroom at least a half hour early to get a decent seat. Everyone rushes through their dining to go to the early show and makes it hard for second ... Read more

If you are thinking of the Ruby Princess, I beg you tothink again. Our pre-Christmas cruise from LA to Cabo was bad in almost any metric. This was our 9th cruise, and our first (and last) on Princess. The management of people was awful ... Read more
