Did B2B on 4 Mar & 11 Mar. Saw an amazing number of whales especially in the Puerto Vallarta Banderos Bay both mornings as we were coming into port early in the morning. Weather was perfect in all ports although Matzatlan had some fog and overcast both days. Embarkation and disembarkation went smoothly and we got on and off board early with our Elite priority status. Service in all dining venues was very good and our waitress and asst. waitress were perfect and service was great. Food was excellent as usual in the dining rooms and the buffets always had a variety of options for all tastes. The singers and dancers for the production shows was superb, some the best we've seen. The cruise director and his asst. were fantastic and kept the passengers entertained throughout the cruise. First week there was a professional Santa Claus annual reunion of over 80 Santa Clauses from through out North America. Really neat to see them all in their full REAL white beards and outfits. Our cabin steward was friendly and attentive and kept our room clean and ice bucket full all the time. The seas were very calm, almost too much, and there was very little motion except as we left and return close to LA. Second week was spring break for children outside of California and there were a lot of families with children on the cruise. They were very excited the first couple of days but calmed down for the rest of the cruise. Highly recommend the Ruby Princess and Princess Cruises for everyone wanting a great vacation and cruise experience.

Another great Ruby Princess Cruise

Cabin Review

Balcony
Cabin BE R723
This is OUR cabin and we try to get it every cruise on one close to it depending on the ship's deck plans.

Standard balcony cabin with nothing special but it is "home" for us whenever we cruise.
