Sail Date: Jan 2017

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 seating guests. Most entertainment is geared for early seating or anytime dining, if eating late you are out of luck. Our cabin was for handicapped travelers, very spacious.Princess food is usually very bland and in some cases almost inedible. It was the worst Princess food we have ever experienced. No berries, no any day steak, now a hamburger, everything to cut costs and to try and get you to go to a specialty venue. Coffee bar and International cafe were best places to eat ,but always crowded. Service personnel are still excellent both in dining room and cabin steward. Do not miss the entertainment, it was best thing on the ship. This is a great itinerary as it goes into the Sea of Cortez and those ports are still like visiting old Mexico. Went swimming with Whale Sharks, a fascinating experience. Good value for your money, but if you are a Foodie ,do not expect much.

Port Reviews

Los Angeles

Fine port but having been there so often of no interest

Cabo San Lucas

Wonderful port if never been there and like to party. Little resemblance to anything Mexican , too Americanized.

Puerto Vallarta

Great port for wandering around, especially if you get away from the tourist areas. Good restaurants. Can be like old Mexico if you try.

San Diego

Nice port, lots to do in and around San Diego. Plenty to do in the port area as well
