This is our first Princess cruise. I do believe it will be our last. Th food is just so terrible. We had the buffet when we first came on board. Yuck. We figured dinner in the dining room had to be better. Nope. I would say Denny's on an off night bad. Very bland, cold. The only flavorful thing on my plate was the little corn on the cob. The plus's on this trip: They upgraded us to a ...

Constant Upsell Spoiled Cruise Pleasure

My first cruise on Princess was a short repositioning cruise from LA to Vancouver. I found it a mixed experience. The Ruby is beautiful, loaded with features and amenities. Some staff are very helpful while others border on indifferent. While I was well aware that this was not a all-inclusive cruise I was very put off by the constant upsell. I signed up for a massage and at the end the ...

6th cruise. I’ve noticed a trend--- we make more friends with crew than fellow passengers and there was mutual recognition from previous ships. Several members from our last cruise on the Grand remembered us. The staff is 99% super and you won’t find that in any other private sector. Treat them decent. Loved my new free internet minutes to check emails-- staff was helpful on this and Inet was ...

Classic Canada & New England; Ruby Princess 10 night

Background Information The Canada/New England itinerary had been on our to-do list for several years. We chose this particular sailing because it started in Quebec City, and we really wanted to spend time there pre-cruise (instead of NYC). It also offered more stops in Canada than New England, though it did have the tradeoff of Saguenay/Gaspe vs Saint John NB (which didn't work out too well for ...

First trip on Princess was great

Due to airline issues, we arrived in Quebec City a day late (Princess was in port over night), but when we arrived the second day, we were hustled through embarkation very quickly. This was a great way to start our association with Princess. If you get a chance to go to Saguenay on your northeastern cruise, do it. It's a great little fjord city that goes out of its way to make you feel welcome. ...

I highly recommend taking a Canadian cruise in October - the weather is refreshing and the colors fantastic! The Ruby Princess served us well. We enjoyed the spread of food and the Canadian ports. Disappointments were that it was too windy for the tender boats to get to either Saguenay or Gaspe (the ports we were most excited to see!) - and we felt that the opportunities offered by the ship for ...

Busy cruise with 2 missed ports

Having cruised with several other cruiselines (Oceania, Celebrity, HAL, NCL, MSC) we like to rate a new experience against them. We experienced Princess on this cruise as much better then HAL, NCL and MSC (which are all considerable cheaper), slightly less then Celebrity but uncomparible to Oceania (which -hover- is slightly more expensive). Embarkation and debarkation: no problem at all. Very ...

This is the second time taking this cruise. The first time was on the Ruby's sister ship, Crown Princess. These ships carry a little over 3000 passengers and I suspect the Ruby was full. Our flights from home took most of the day and we didn't reach the ship until 11:30pm. Luckily we had another day in Quebec City, which is a lovely city with many sights to see within walking distance of the ship ...

The Ruby Princess has recently been renovated and is very nice. Rich woodtones throughout and very tastefully done.I did find it a little harder to navigate than other ships I've been on St John, Sydney and Charlottetown,this could have been a 7 day cruise and eliminated those ports not much to see there.If it is on your itinerary and you need a break from touring as you are at ports everyday you ...
