Ruby Princess (New Zealand Feb. 11-24, 2020)
"Major concern voiced by numerous passengers was that the menu wine selections by the glass were not available in the dining rooms and an alternate was not offered until later in cruise due to complaints raised.Auckland – Ship docked right in city center so you can simply walk off ship to tour city; however, beware that extensive road construction if underway near port...."Read More

Wife and I were looking for a nice getaway for thanksgiving, felt with covid this might be a good choice, and it definetly was. The requirement for being vaccinated and having a recent (2 day) antigen test increased our comfort level. While we could tell that they were still not up to full speed we had not issues and would due it and recommend it as a convient way to get away. Grew to like ...

To give you a little background on us and our cruising history: We are a couple living in San Francisco. At the time of the sailing, one of us is 55 and the other turns 50 this month. We are interior designers based in SF and work for ourselves. We typically sail on Celebrity Cruises and have completed 8 cruises with the cruise line. Most all of these have been TransAtlantics, which we ...

Embarkation was incredibly smooth... the longest delay was the security screening and even with that plus our slow walking... we went from the curb to our cabin in 20 minutes...smoothest I have ever experienced...the medallion kept us flowing...It was especially moving to have ship staff from different sections lined up applauding and welcoming us aboard The safety Drill is sweet... just ...

A friend invited me to join this cruise and it was wonderful overall. The medallion class had a wearable medallion that opens your cabin door, recognizes you at a bar, cafe and other desks where staff interact with you and makes for a pretty smooth experience. A lot more can be done on your device app if you explore the software more. While thrilled to be back on the sea and comfortable ...

This was the cruise of our dreams....and New Zealand didn't let us down. Sadly there was much to disappoint on board. We found organisation often chaotic specially on days we had to tender. You had to queue for tickets to join then queue to get off and it took an absolute age. Another occasion we had to queue for a ticket just to join the queue to get off the ship to get on a shuttle bus. ...

Destination good, ship poor

Chosen because of its destination. New Zealand. First impression. The ship was big. Cabin was very comfortable. Nice touch with floor lights when using the bathroom at night. Plenty of hanging space and storage.Initial thoughts that the ship had a lot of rust for its age. Fixtures and fittings in some public areas looked tired.. Theatre was very good but only catered for 1400 passengers per show ...

My first experience with Princess and I have to say on this size ship it will probably be my last. The ship itself was fine, although the elevators were always crammed with people and mobility scooters etc. which made getting from the lower decks to the Horizon buffet on level 15 tedious and frustrating. The cabin was well fitted out and comfortable. The beds were probably the highlight, so ...

Fabulous Cruise, Excellent Service & Food!

Once again, Princess turned on an excellent cruise with unsurpassed service & food. We boarded in Sydney effortlessly - I walk with a cane so was given priority at check-in which was very thoughtful and appreciated. We had a balcony stateroom for this cruise around New Zealand and it was wonderful to view the exquisite scenery, particularly in Fiordland, from that balcony. All staff, without ...

Our 7th princess cruise and we felt the food quality is in a downward spiral in terms of flavor, quality and choice. We love Princess but might have to try some different lines and are open to recommendations? Coffee on board was terrible and we resolved to start bringing our own with a small filter and drip solution. Entertainment on this cruise was great on the positive side. Disembarkation ...

Relaxing 13 night cruise on Ruby Princess

We chose this trip from Sydney to New Zealand to enjoy a cruise and to see some of New Zealand. We flew from Hobart, Tasmania to stay with our son in Sydney the night before. We weren't due to embark until 4.00 pm but we arrived at the terminal around 2 45 and we were very impressed with the embarkation process. I think it took only about 15 minutes to get to our cabin and our luggage had just ...
