My husband always wanted to do an Alaska cruise so this was it, although I would love to go again. This is my second time on the Ruby Princess and I just love this ship. We never felt crowded nor did we ever have to wait for a table at ... Read more

I chose this cruise because it was one of the last sailings for the year and I was hoping to get a chance to see the Northern Lights. This was our primary reason for choosing Princess as they ran Alaskan cruises later than RC or Carnival. ... Read more

We had not sailed on Princess for 5 years, after a very disappointing cruise on Emerald Princess in 2012 (affected by Hurricane Sandy). So I wasn't expecting too much except a good itinerary, especially in the food area, where I found on ... Read more

We picked this cruise to see Alaska on a ship departing out of San Francisco. This is a great option for Bay Area residents eliminating the hassle and cost of flying to the port. We arrived at Pier 27 around 1030 and made our way through ... Read more

We chose to get started on our bucket list with this trip. Partner and myself are a couple in our mid-30s, no children. We are local San Franciscans, so the round-trip option out of SF was our major deciding factor in choosing this cruise ... Read more

We specifically chose an Alaska cruise for chance to see glaciers while there are yet glaciers to see. I'm not sure we were entirely prepared for how much we would enjoy the full experience of the cruise. Although the Island Princess is ... Read more

We have sailed with Princess several times and have always enjoyed our on board experience. Our cabin was clean, but furnishings were tired, as was a lot of areas of the ship. There was flaking paint on the balcony. Dining was hit ... Read more

I chose this particular sailing because the price was decent, the timing was right for my schedule, and because I hadn't cruised to Alaska in over 20 years and why not now? It was the first time in over 15 years that I flew directly to ... Read more
