Excellent Cruise- the opposite of every negative review I read on this site
"The room service food was not great (with the exception of the pizza) but good enough to keep us fed.The room was great, the staff excellent across the board, and this was an excellent vacation- one of the best ever...."Read More

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

We took the 'Wine Country' cruise, up the West Coast, earlier this month, with 5 ports from San Pedro to Vancouver BC. Great itinerary, mostly pleasant employees, terrible food. We had to pay an extra $60. per person, per day, for a 'drinks, internet and gratuities' package, required even for drinking water, and were restricted from eating in the better restaurants onboard, unless we welcomed ...

This was our first cruise with Princess and the first embarking from San Francisco. What a nightmare that was, we were scheduled to leave from the regular Pier 27 but the night before was told we were at Pier 35 which is just an old Pier. We did all check ins ahead of time and were told to arrive at 12 for a 12 to 12:30 assigned time. We got there a bit early only to find out they still hadn't ...

We're Elite with Princess, Club/Reserve Mini Suite Level and sail with them 2-3 times a year and just returned from a 7 day Calif Costal Cruise. I have no problem rating Guest Service at 5 Stars throughout this cruise and our 2 previous cruises in 2022. Despite having access to the Club/Reserve Dinning Room, we've noticed that since the Covid reopening Princess's food quality and variety has ...

This was our first cruise with Princess, and my second cruise ever (the first cruise was with Carnival in 2005). Re traveled aboard the Ruby Princess, to the Pacific Northwest. The ship is extremely seaworthy and very beautiful. I have read a lot of negative reviews prior to the cruise, and wanted to post a different review to ease concerns others reading these reviews may have. My only ...

We have been on Ruby Princess 5 times since the restart of Cruising. The food quality in particular in the Buffet and Main Dining Room have been steadily declining. We were on Discovery Princess and were pleasantly surprised how good the food was. Ruby Princess does not have Hand washing stations installed in the Buffet. Even the Grand Princess have hand washing stations in the buffet. The Crew ...

Many will not like this review. They will say I am negative, can't say anything good and that I am just horrible to write such things about a cruise that "I" experienced. Notice, I said "I". If they were on this cruise they might feel the same. I will start with the good things. The staff was spectacular. They went above and beyond, especially since they were over worked . More ...

We have Platinum Elite status and have had many very happy experiences with Princess. We have cruised on the Ruby's 2 sister ships and loved both. This cruise started off very bad. We had priority boarding which took an hour with crowded conditions. Almost no one had masks. Some took 3 1/2 hours to get on board later in the day. The ship had 2800 passengers. Everywhere was crowded and very ...

We booked the May 30th Alaska cruise first, then added the May 23rd Coastal afterward. We occupied Caribe 510 for the Alaska leg, then added the forward leg when cabin E632 became available at a favorable price. Preparation: Six new items had to be addresses by us, having never cruised on a Medallion equip ship. The new software was kludgy with more than a few redo's on our schedule weeks ...

Have cruised 4 times with Princess and would rate the first three as 5 star. This cruise was the first cruise with a full ship after resuming sailing. Unfortunately it was staffed for a half capacity cruise. Embarking took many people 2-3 hours. The ship left 1hr 15minutes late because they could not get the people on board. Many people had dining and excursions they had ordered in advance ...

Sad to say our recent 10 day cruise on the RMS Ruby Princess was not up to par and will be our first and last experience with Princess. We were with a large group of seasoned Princess cuisers and they were extremely disappointed by this experience. We did not know what to expect, but, based upon feed earlier feedback from them we expected Princess to be on par with lines such as Holland and ...
