Three night, not 31 night, repositioning cruise...

This was a three night hop from Vancouver down to Los Angeles, an excellent way to pick up cruise credits en route to free laundry. :) The Ruby is not our favorite ship by a long shot. It’s small, and it feels small, despite her ability to carry so many people. When we got on board, I couldn’t believe the Horizon Court wasn’t a snack bar. What the heck? This was our second time embarking ...

Poor Cruise Experience

Very poor experience overall. Starting it all off my baggage "lost" (sitting behind front desk), first customer service agent told me to come back at 6pm and didn't even check, this was at 4pm and we boarded in the morning mind you. The rest of my cabin mates received their luggage between 11a-1pm, and we all placed them in the same a truck. Went back at 5pm, a new customer service agent was there ...

We love doing this cruise every year - we take the train up to Vancouver, the ship down to Seattle - it is an awesome little overnight trip. Since it is only 1 night we take an inside cabin, although 1 year we DID book the mini-suite. We travel w/ 4 in the cabin for most cost effectiveness. It was a one night cruise so no big show - the lounges had nice shows - the service was great - the ...

Ruby Princess - One night cruise has a non-standard Princess vibe

Background Information Working toward Elite status on Princess - we had 10 prior to this. Cobbled together this cruise with the 3n Coral Princess LA to Vancouver into our own Pacific Coastal/Pacific Northwest vacation. Second time sailing on Ruby (1st time was in 2014) - this is the first Princess ship that we've repeated. Travel to Embarkation Port After disembarking Coral Princess, we ...

First (Maybe Last?) 1 Night Cruise

After finding out that my husband planned to be out of town for the Mother's Day Weekend, I decided on a whim to book the very reasonably priced 1 day Pacific Coastal cruise from Vancouver to Seattle on the Ruby Princess. It would be a business trip, I thought to myself, because booking a cabin as a single would get me double credit towards becoming Elite on Princess. What a great idea! Because ...

We wanted to go to Canada and this seemed like a good approach. The ship was in good condition. Food was ok. Buffet is split into two adjacent sections and it was a challenge to find seating a couple of times. The setup for the Lotus pool was bizarre. You can see it from the hallway in Lotus Spa but the doors are kept locked. I wanted to use the hot tub beside the pool and I asked the hostess ...

This was our fifth Princess cruise, and our second on the Ruby. EMBARKATION: We took the Princess transfer from LAX and arrived at the terminal around 11:30. We had about a 15 minute wait in line to check in. Since we were still Ruby level for this cruise, we didn’t have priority boarding, but we only waited another 20 minutes before our boarding group was called. We ate lunch in the Da Vinci ...

Embarkation- super easy out of San Pedro. Was in boarding group 9 and on the ship before 12:30. Ate in the main dining room-delicious! Kept my carry-on with me. Rooms were ready by 1:00. Stateroom L311- nice and clean. Furniture had a few scratches. No USB Ports. No barrel chair. Bed was heavenly. Balcony could use paint. Got Lotus Spa lotion every day. Had to remind steward for ice once. ...

Blah food and terrible excursions

The food was very repetitive with little variety. All meat was touch and stringy. The excursions were terrible as far as getting dumped off at locations (Ensenada in particular) where we spent 1 1/2 hours at a dusty, dirty Mexican flea market. We chose Princess because of the itinerary and we had never gone with them. This was the first and last. I hate to say it but Carnival had ...

Just returned home from a seven day California Coastal cruise on Ruby Princess. Many pros and cons with ship, but most cons lay with Princess Cruises themselves. We are 63 + cruises into our lives, 14 of those with Princess. We have enjoyed many things with Princess through the years, but unfortunately, the amounts of staff reductions and food quality, make it difficult to sail again. Full ...
