Let me start by saying I am not a cruise expert by any means, but this was my 4th cruise and by far the worst. It started even before the cruise set sail when I did my booking on line. I learned from my other three cruises that my wife and I will always get balcony cabins and spend the extra money for a junior or mini suite. So I did the same this cruise only to find out by reading other reviews ...

My wife and I have cruised many times mostly on Royal. Ive heard only good things about Princess, so we booked. We had a group of 10 People. Ages 30-75. We flew into Ft. Lauderdale pre-cruise stayed at the Sheraton Ft. Lauderdale $188.00 with tax. The hotel was great for 1 night. We walked to coconuts for dinner which we enjoyed and returned back at the hotel to pass out at 730 pm. Took a cab to ...

We booked this cruise because of the buy 1 get 1 promotion. Found out later that the get 1 had to be a seven day. Not thrilled over this but what can you do. I just hope the Regal Princess is better - sure it will be. That said, I mostly had a great time on the Ruby. An amazing group of people at dinner - we really hit it off all together - more than any other ship I've ever been on. That was the ...

We booked a Vista Suite at the Aft of the ship. This Suite is suitable for 2 people but I can't imagine squeezing a family into this space. The balcony was wonderful and except for the camera pointed directly into our cabin- It was private. Our stewart told us it was a fire alarm..Yeah right. We booked this suite expecting the Suite amenities. For paying twice as much as we would have for the ...

Major flaws- played elevator music in the AM thru late mornings on the pool decks. Options for activities in the AM to late morning hours were card making and knitting. For REAL? My wife and I have cruised on NCL 4x , Carnival 2 x. Princess was by far the most boring. The entertainment in the evenings was pretty good. The magician was fantastic. The comedian was crude and allowed some old fart ...

We have been on cruises before, but years ago. We have taken Princess, Cunard, Royal Caribbean. The stateroom on this cruise was nicer and larger than we expected. The food on some nights, however was inedible. We were on the "traditional seating" plan. The menu items sounded wonderful, but the resulting meals served were far below what had been described. The food seemed to get worse, nightly. ...

We went on our very first cruise with Princess Cruise Lines aboard the Ruby Princess during the very first week of the 2013 year. We have cruised with many other cruise lines. We complained the very first night about the A/C in our stateroom. For us, it's very difficult to sleep when the room is above seventy-five degrees Fahrenheit. Their lack luster response was pretty much "tough stuff" ...

We left the Hurricane Sandy battered Northeast a few days pre-cruise and stayed at the Sheraton Fort Lauderdale Resort (POWER! WOOHOO!). Decent place, we enjoyed it and at the Priceline rate of $80/night - it worked. It's a 10 minute walk to shops and restaurants/nightlife, and a 10 minute ride to the port. The hotel does not offer a shuttle and the cabs are pricey. It's still cheaper than renting ...

From the time I began embarkation until I left the ship I found the general rule of the cruise line for dealing with customers was to belittle and ignore. I have sailed before and know how to handle finances aboard ship. I was snapped at by the embarkation person, in fact, told to "shut up" if I wanted to get on board. He could not separate my husband's and my account onto separate credit cards. I ...
