Not a great cruise...

Ruby Princess Cruise Review by Joseandsandy1007

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jun 2018
  • Destination: Alaska
  • Cabin Type: Balcony

We chose princess because of the great things we had heard about it. We thought it was one of the best and it went to the glaciers which we really wanted to see....

We did not like the ship at all. It was dated. The theater was horrible, the seats were tight, the stage was old and the shows were ok for what they had to work with. The games and extra stuff the cruise director and her staff did were fun, but not organized, it looked like it was done by kids in high school.

The whole ship smelled like poop. There were certain places where you walked that it was worse. We would sit in our balcony and the smell would hit us after awhile. It was from the 1st moment we stepped on the ship.

My room had a clog in the shower with water and slug in it. So gross. That was our welcome, oh and the toilet was broken as well.

The staff was great! The food was great too!!! unfortunately we will not be traveling princess again. If we want to see the glaciers again, we will give a chance to the holland cruise line. If we visit Alaska again we will try ncl or Rc.

We did not get our money’s worth. Those are 15k I will never get back.. the views in Alaska were amazing!

Cabin Review

Cabin BC B624

The cabin was ok, a little dated. The bed and pillows were comfy. The toilets and shower were old. On the first day our shower was clogged with water and black slug. So gross. The room always smelled bad, and it was worse when we opened the balcony.
