We just got back from an amazing week on the Ruby Princess, sailing from Seattle to Alaska. I felt compelled to write this review because so many of the reviews I read previously were so negative. They made me nervous to cruise, but I ... Read more

I will break this up into sections so it would be easier to understand. Keep in mind that this is a Japan Cruise. 70% of passengers are Japanese. I have been cruising with Royal Caribbean, Norwegian, and Carnival, but by far, this ... Read more

The only reason we booked this Cruise to Norway was the perfect date for shoot term finish. We had stress free travel down to Southampton, which we loved, but the Mini Suite does not look any different to the Balconies we experience on ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we wanted to explore Alaska. When we read some of the reviews we were almost regretting choosing the Grand Princess. I was also warned that the ocean could get very rough. Well, we had perfect weather ... Read more

Having cruised on Holland America, Celebrity, Royal Caribbean, Regent Seven Seas, and previously on Princess, I have experiences to afford comparisons. We had a mini suite and it was adequate, anything smaller would have been pathetic. Our ... Read more

I picked this cruise because of daily stops each day. Wonderful ports the whole trip! Ireland and Scotland Normandy are beautiful and safe to travel! We started in London and got to go to Wimbeldon pre cruise. Embarking was very ... Read more

We actually spent 4 days in London prior to the cruise. I arranged for Silver Fleet Car Service to pick us up at Heathrow and take us to the flat we rented on the East End. Ian was our driver and we had fun and informative conversations ... Read more

We chose this cruise as a gift for our 17-year-old granddaughter. She wanted to go to St. Petersburg. We chose this cruise rather than the one on the Regal Princess with a similar itinerary because it started and ended in Southampton, ... Read more

In my opinion, Princess always has the best itineraries. We have done Alaska, Asia, Australia and New Zealand, Norwegian Fjords and Baltic and chosen Princess each time based on the best itinerary. The food is good, not special. Club ... Read more

Our family of five (kids ages 13/1315) thought that this was the best cruise we had had in a while. The dining room staff was prompt and friendly which is especially important to us as my daughter is on a special diet for Crohn's ... Read more

This was our fourth cruise, our second with Princess, and our second itinerary to the Baltics. We chose this particular cruise because we avoided the start of the main school holidays, the Southampton departure port is very good for us and ... Read more

We had a great time on this ship. I appreciate the size of it. For the first time since I began cruising, I didn't need to take any motion sick meds. Embarkation was smooth- we waited until around 2pm (it started at noon). We were met at ... Read more

I've always heard that the land tour and cruise are the best for seeing Alaska and that Princess was the first line there. So I decided to book directly through Princess and it was a cluster from day one. The booking agent was incompetent. ... Read more

There were 17 of us in the group and common consensus is most staff look miserable, no hello's and no smiles. The exception is our room steward and waiter at our fix dinning. We all had high expectations on quality of service and food ... Read more

This was a great cruise with a wonderful itinerary. You must see Glacier Bay. It was wonderful to have a park ranger come on board during our cruising that day to talk about the area. I enjoyed the naturalist on board during the week who ... Read more

Wanted to experience the Fjords so chose this cruise as they were offering balcony cabins at the same price as outside and 3rd person for half price. Getting on board was fine, a little crushed in the waiting area. Cabin was ready and ... Read more

Princess had the right British Isles itinerary and that is what we went for. We had low expectations for the ship based on a previous cruise with Princess and Cruise Critic reviews, and it was about as expected. Princess would not be our ... Read more

We took this cruise for the itinerary and also because we had previously taken a Princess Cruise although not for more than 15 years. Initially it seemed as though we made a good choice but once the cruise embarked certain things became ... Read more

Princess Cruises has entered the race to the bottom with so many changes, to what once was the popular "Love Boat" experience. The focus during the entire cruise was to generate onboard revenue with additional charges and ... Read more
